Steps

  1. Step 1

    Slip one end of a 5/8-inch-by-24-inch paper strip into the quilling tool; turn it three times to create rose's center.

  2. Step 2

    Fold paper away from you, at a right angle. Roll paper again, letting the top edge flare outward while keeping the bottom edge tight against the tool. Add dabs of glue at base as you roll.

  3. Step 3

    When the fold is at the top of the bloom, make another right-angled fold. Roll again in the same fashion. Repeat this folding and rolling technique until the rose is the size you want.

  4. Step 4

    Glue end in place.
