Quilling Flowers

from Paper Zen
(8) Name: 'Paper Crafts : Quilling Flowers

Quilling Flowers

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • quilling
  • loose scrolls
  • loose coils

Pattern Description:

If you know how to quill loose coils and scrolls, you're ready to learn how to make modern open-petal flowers.

Double petals, stamens, larger and smaller flowers, 8 petal flowers, and a super easy-peasy guide for measuring each strip. For those who dislike reading manuals, there are step-by-step photos to show each stage.

I designed these flowers because I wanted a graphic and airier look than traditional flower quilling. It uses less material and for me, I was able to make my bouquets faster. My tension is not always the same, so if you've been daunted by the exacting coils usually shown in quilling flowers, I hope you will feel inspired to give my version of quilling with a "modern twist" a try.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Flowers are approximately 1" and smaller.


  • quilling tool (slotted or needle)
  • glue
  • quilling paper

You Will Also Need:
