Do these take a lot of practice? I feel like I have not been successful at these but I have only made a few then moved on.

Me too. I have watched several videos and just don’t like the way mine have turned out. :woman_shrugging:

The videos seem so promising and I am all “I can do it” then “I can’t do it” after haha!

I use a tweezer to hold the end when rolling that works for me after I roll it I let it loosen up a bit then it looks like a flower I found if it is too tight it does not look too good let us know how you do

Thats such a good idea! I never thought to “pinch” the end with tweezers. I will try it. I think your right, mine always seem to tight. Thank you!

happy to help

They are pretty simple. Use cardstock with no shit edge and rightly mist with water and they roll easier.

Oh great tip @Mary_T1! :heart:

I have found a quilling tool to be very helpful in making these. If you don’t have access to one, you can snip the loop end off of a needle, poke the pointy end into a cork or soft wood, and make your own.

Oh neat!

I love these flowers. I’ve actually made felt flowers in the same way before by hand cutting a design in a similar shape. This was project about 10 years ago.

Oh that is so neat that it works for felt too!

great suggestion!!

After rolling and glueing a rose I use to bend the rosepetals with a tweezer. You have to practise a lot before you see progress sp don´t give up the first times!
