Instructions for one rose:
1. Either use a compass drawing tool to make circles or trace around circular items. Use items could be tape rolls, cups, glasses, can lids, etc...
2. Cut out the circle with decorative edged scissors.
3. Then use the scissors and start cutting a spiral from the outside to the inside. The width should be about 1 centimeter (about 3/8 inch).
4. Continue until you reach the inside of the circle. Your shape should look like the one in the image about when finsihed.
5. Take a quilling tool and insert the outer end into the slot. Then start to turn the tool towards you...
6. ... and keep turning so that the paper wraps itself around the tool.
7. When you reach the end, your paper looks similar to this.
8. Remove the paper from the tool, and hold it so that it can gently turn itself in the other direction, causing the rose to take shape. When you are satisfied with the size of your rose (you can make one that is a little tigher or one that is slightly looser in shape) then add drops of glue between the petals and also on the bottom of the rose to hold it in place.
9. If you use a craft glue, you may have to hold the rose a couple of seconds so the glue can dry a little. This will prevent that the rose does not open up any more than you wish it to.
If you use hot glue, you will get immediate results with the drying time but because the roses are small and delicate, please be careful not to burn yourself while doing it.
