I have been thinking of quilling a daisy for some time ,I quilled one finally and really enjoyed making it . I did not mean to use it on a card, as it will be difficult to put the card inside an envelope without crumpling the daisy.
Then again I used it on this card with this beautiful background. I will keep this card for myself .The quilled bee and the word happy together will make "bee happy", and it will look nice on my son's table.
I almost never use pattern paper as it becomes difficult for me to quill over the patterns, but these had daisies on them and I thought I could use it. I vastly prefer white base as it will allow me to use lot of colours and the card stock I use has a slight gloss which reflects the colours in the strips making it look all the more beautiful.
I have quilled the word happy with black strips. The swirls are all dark green( it doesn't show in the picture).
Take a strip of 10mm quilling paper , yellow colour and fringe it as shown.( I cut the fringes with a pair of scissors)
With the help of a slotted tool roll the fringed strip.(Roll it with your hand if you don't have a tool)
Remove the rolled strip from the tool and glue the end.
Press the fringes on all sides to make a fringed flower.
Take a small circle of paper and make a cut as shown.
Stick the cut ends one on top of the other to form a small cone .
Cut strips into small pieces of required length and then round off the edges.Stick the strips over the cone as shown.
Continue this way , until you have at least three rows of petals.
Stick the fringed yellow flower at the center of the strips. Here you have a beautiful daisy.
Thanks for stopping by , Have a creative day.
