This is based on a video on how to make a "Royal Flower" using the husking technique.
Here's a chronicle of my attempts:
|To make the outside husk, wrap a 12" long quilling paper around a ruler.|
|To make the inside of the flower, wrap the quilling paper (use one 24" long strip)|
once around the ruler to make the central loop. Dab a bit of glue at the bottom of the loop.
Then use alternate side looping to make the rest of the loops.
|Alternate side looping - Make a loop, add a dab of glue at the bottom,|
and then make a loop to the left side of the first loop.
Then make a loop to the right side.
Repeat the process until there are 7 - 8 loops.
It is a good idea to slightly decrease the height of the loops
as you go farther from the center loop.
Rip off the excess quilling paper.
|With the quilling tool, grab the inside part of the loop.|
|Quill each loop towards the center|
