Today I made a Birthday gift and matching card for my dear friend. The flowers are cut from Double sided paper from page 70 of the Art Philosophy cart at 2.5 inches. I used double sided paper. I love making these rolled flowers.
I used a small green foam wreath that I got in the clearance at my local M's. There were two and both were broken so they were only 50 cents each. I wrapped the foam wreath with cheap white ribbon.
For these flowers you start at the end and roll. I am using the Cuttlebug quilling roller. If you don't have one of these get a quilling pen at the craft store. The end inserts around the paper so you can roll it easily. On a 12 x 12 sheet I get 16 flowers. You can see the stack of flowers in the back. Once you roll them you release them and they loosen up and then I glue them with the glue gun.
Here is a closeup of the flowers glued with glue gun to the wreath.
I tied a wide ribbon at the top
I then remembered a sketch I had seen for a birthday card challenge at Celebrate the Occasion and thought it was perfect for the scraps I had left from the flowers. The card is 5 x 5 and the squares are cut 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. I used three flowers and cut out 3 leaves with a punch. Stamp is a $1 stamp from Michaels.
Here is the sketch.
