Craft Essentials, Quilling papers

• Wrap an 11cm dark green strip of quilling paper around a round object 1.2cm in diameter, such as a pen lid. Glue the end in place, sliding the coil off the lid. Make eight and gently squeeze each end to form a petal shape.

• Secure the two flowers to the card below the bigger bloom. To finish, add a strip of light green paper to each flower for the stalk and tuck the ends into the vase.
