Happy Spring to you and hello April !

I've linked a quick YouTube Short (30sec) from Miriam's Quilling. All you need to know is the simple shape. Loose roll (coil), pinch and shape into a teardrop and make two. 

The leaves are big loose rolls*. I use different size medicine bottle caps-lids as templates for big rolls. Roll, then drop it in a cap, after it has released remove with tweezers and glue. Shape into long skinny leaves. Even just one of these tulips would be awesome on a card or gift tag. Remember, make odd numbers of elements for balance.

Making Spring Tulips - YTube Short

You can make any size for any reason with any width of paper.** 

This 15" tulip is on my craft room wall. I used 1" (25mm) wide, 12" long construction paper strips.*** I often use a paper crimper on all the strips before rolling, gluing and shaping. There are only seven pieces to this. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Tulips, quilled tulips. There are tens of ways to make pretty ones with paper. Check out Pinterest. 

*Miriam uses the side-loop technique.

**Miriam uses thick 5mm wide "on-edge" paper. I think it's hard to use but she's a master at it.

***Michaels has a pack of 10 colors 50 total sheets for $2.50. If you are going to try and buy the 9"x12" construction paper, be sure it is heavyweight and not the thin tissue paper looking stuff. 

Amazon has 12 colors of 9"x12", double the white-- $88.99 for 2,200 sheets. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Enjoy every day and be safe.
