multiple loops

    

                        

            I have made the flowers by looping with multiple strips. I have used three colours , white at the center and light blue and navy blue.


          Take three  strips of different colours stick them together at one end. Loop them around a cardboard strip for the first loop, (just so we can make all the petals of the same size).


      
       
           Pull the inner strip to make it one thirds of its length and then pull the middle strip to make it two thirds of its size.



         Now instead of alternating the loops ,bend the strips and loop it in the same direction ,make this loop a little bigger than the first as this will be the middle of the petal now pull the two inner strips to bring them to the required lengths.



        Next loop again the strips in the same direction and pull the two inner strips to make the third loop which is the same size as the first loop.



       Stick the strips at the base to hold them in position,




        Bring the three strips around the loops and stick all three at the bottom of the petal , we can also cut two strips and bring one strip alone around the loops.



           Cut the extra strips of paper , this will make one petal of three loops with three different colours.


                                  



                      


         For this flower I have used two strips of pink and yellow strip in the middle , This flower I did as shown above, but with alternating loop technique as the inner as well as the outer strip are of the same colour .
