Cuttlebug Quilled Chrysanthemum Kit

I'm still working on the goodies that came in that box from Jo Ann's a couple of weeks ago. Now, I've made my first chrysanthemum!

I don't mind telling you it took a bit of trial and error working with these Cuttlebug Quilling kits. By keeping at it my flower backs are as nice and neat as the fronts.

What I used:
Cut card stock into 1" strips.
Run 1 green through the Cuttlebug for leaves, 1 yellow for flower center (cuts 4), 1 pale beige for small fringe (cuts 2) and 2 pink for larger fringe outer petals.

If you don't have the longer Cuttlebug plates, then use the older plates, placing the dies on a diagonal.

Cuttlebug plates from bottom up are: A,C, paper on die facing up (illustration side down and then the B plate.

Use only one straight center piece tightly rolled and glued at the end, on the tool. Next attach together the 2 smaller fringed strips...only at one end and then there to the center rolled piece. Roll this and glue at the end...repeat with the larger fringed pieces.

Push the rolled up flower down on a flat surface and spread the fringed petals by pressing them down.

Add two leaves from the back of the flower.

Take your time the these flowers are so worth getting it cut!

It's amazing what you can make out of paper! Those flowers are so nice. Never done quilling before, there are so many nice designs to try.
