Introduction

Folded Roses

Transform simple cardboard boxes into poetic containers. Cover boxes with red paper, and then attach clusters of folded roses with craft glue. Tuck a heart-shaped chocolate or other romantic treat inside.

A nosegay of tiny red roses evokes Victorian charm. Create a dozen folded roses, and add floral-wire stems; wrap the bouquet in silk tissue, and set it in a vase.

Fringed Flowers

A bouquet of quilled flowers will outlast fresh blooms. Create several fringed flowers, and add floral-wire stems.

To fashion these blooms, you will need to learn five quilling shapes: tight circle, marquise, teardrop, bell, and fringed flowers.
