"There are a huge number of Spellbinder dies to make lots of different flowers and blossoms. Some are fairly straight forward, but some look a little strange...until you know what you are doing of course. Bauble blossoms are one of my favourite kinds of paper blossoms. The die will give you a flat strip of petals, but a quick and easy flick of the wrist will leave you with a beautiful little 3 dimensional flower. Allow me to get you addicted..."




Step One 

Choose your template and die cut along with the centre strip (Each set come with two different flowers to make and one centre strip)

Step Two 

Use a quilling tool to roll the centre strip into a tight ball. Glue the end down and set aside. It will be easier to curl the petal strip if you give each petal a slight crease through the centre.


Step Three 

Adhere the smaller end of the petal strip to the tight roll.



 Step Four 

Continue to curl the entire strip adjusting the tightness to ensure that the petals are overlapping each other to fill in the gaps therefore creating a full blossom.

Step Five

 Fold down each petal, then gently shape each petal to form a dimensional flower. You can then embellish with glitter or ink if desired.
