Quilling Technique Tutorial : How to make Quilled Flower Petals without tools

Hey! Its been quite a long break I took since my last post. I agree craft blogging isnt as much fun as crafting! But anyhow i am determined that this month Im gonna post all of my finished but unposted craft works. So todays tutorial is on making Quilled flower petals without quilling tools. Actually I used this technique to make my first ever large scale craft work which in fact is the very reason behind setting up this craft blog :).I shall cover the whole project in another picture heavy post but for now, i have made this tutorial for making quilled flower petals for a sunflower without any quilling tools.

Materials required to make quilled flower petals:

  2. Glue
  3. Comb

Step by step tutorial for making quilled flower petals

The easiest way to describe it is just 2 steps :

  1. Wind your quilling paper arounnd the comb by leaving one teeth between each windings. Secure the end to the roll with glue.
  2. Take out the spiral quilled stuff from the comb and twist the ends to opposite directions. Tada!!!
  3. Done!

So here is after which you remove the enlongated quilled flower coil from the comb and this is what its gonna look like. The idea of using a comb here is to have same size/length quilled flower petals. If you remember a similar idea was used HERE to make a quilled flower leaf.quilled flower tutorial



Okay so wasnt it very easy till now? Its not gonna get difficult anyways! Just twist the top and bottom ends of the long coil to opposite directions to finally make cute lil quilled flower petals.Mostly these quilled flower petals can be used to make quilled sunflowers i guess but thats a very easy thing for any quilling beginner to try out.

    You have made the most beautiful design in most easy way… I always messed up with papers and tools while trying to do something like this..
