twisted loops




     I came across twisted loops as one of the techniques in quilling. I have used 
one centimeter width quilling paper for the flowers and leaves. I have mounted it all on a shadow box.


                                  

Take a small strip of paper of any width.


Twist the strip and stick the two ends of the strip one over the other.

                                  

Cut the extra piece of strip from both the ends.This will be one petal and the same for one leaf.


Stick the petals to form a flower. For the lower circle the petals are stuck flat, but for the upper circle the petals are stuck with a slight elevation. It took thirteen petals to make one flower .Seven for the lower circle and six for the outer.
