A very happy republic day to you all !! Come, let's quill floral branch - in a palette is inspired by our tri-color flag.
This is simple to make & looks very natural. Put it in a mug 'or' frame it., and bring in a bit of nature around you.
Step 1: Flowers - Base & The Petals
For this, I used pre-cut 2mm quilling strips from CraftGully. I made a tight coil with 2 dark colored (I used Henna Green) strips give it the form of a dome, by lightly pressing into the centre. Next, insert a floral wire through the centre & glue it - the base is ready!
Now, make 5 lightly loose coils using orange strips. Slightly pinch one end and bend the other end outwards to give it a natural look. Arrange 5 such petals over the base, and the flower is ready.
Step 2: Leaves
Next, paint the leaves and while they are still wet, score the veins using the CraftGully quilling needle tool. Let them dry completely
Step 3: Arrangement
To make the arrangement look natural and organic, I've used a few buds (made with 2 strips)
Next, using a floral wire, arrange the buds, flowers & stems
To bring in some life & also the remaining color from tri-color, I have added a white butterfly made from paper. The body of which is made out of quilling.
Step 4: Voila. The floral branch arrangement is ready !!
Step 5: All set to go into a frame!
