Fringed Quilling Flowers

How to Make a Fringe Quilling Flower

  1. Start with a strip of paper that is is ⅜” wide and 8″ long. Fringe the paper in one of these ways:
    • Fold the strip of paper in half crosswise. Use scissors to cut the paper repeatedly crosswise. Cut only ⅜ of the way across. Unfold and you will get a paper with a frilly, fringe edge.
    • You can also hold the quilling paper with a clamp. This will allow you to make cuts of equal depth without accidentally cutting through the entire strip.
    • A third alternative is to use a quilling fringer. This tool is like a stapler: you press down on it and it will cut your paper to have a fringe edge. After each press, the fringer will advance the paper automatically. Click here to see a fringer.
  2. Insert the end of the fringed paper into a slotted quilling tool and roll the paper into a tight coil.
  3. Remove the tight coil from the quilling tool and pry open the fringes. This will give you a fringed quilling flower. This flower looks nice on a toothpick.
