Materials Needed:

– Double-sided colored paper
– Scissors
– Glue
– A ready-made or a do-it-yourself slotted tool, or just a wooden toothpick.

Directions:

1. Cut a paper strip about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long. Fold it lengthwise.

2. Create a fringe by making small cuts at 45 degrees along the closed edge.

3. Attach to its end a regular — 1/8 inch wide and 10 inches long — quilling strip. This will make the center of the flower.

4. Roll tightly using a toothpick or quilling tool, starting from the tip of the narrow strip.

5. After the fringe is rolled up, glue its tip and hold for a couple of minutes to let the glue dry a little.
