So I'm back with a blog post today after I uploaded a new quilling tutorial yesterday on my YouTube channel. I think it's been about 2 months or so since I last made a quilling tutorial there and I was working on another quilling tutorial but I decided to postpone that one and do this one first since this one is connected to the previous quilling tutorial that I did last August. It has something to do with the Twisted Loops and so I thought it would be better to do this one since you guys are familiar already with the Twisted Loops now.
So here's the story on why I decided to do this tutorial now. As you can see, there are two different Twisted Loops flower design that I made in this tutorial and the blue one was inspired by a quiller I follow on Instagram by the name of hexiaoxiao57. Her flower design is absolutely beautiful. I tried to make it like hers but I don't think I even came close since I used a different type of quilling paper and a different way of making the fringe flower for the Twisted Flower as well. Like I said earlier I didn't plan on making this tutorial but, I had so many requests from my Instagram followers to do it. They wanted to know how to make hexiaoxiao57's flower like the blue one you see in the photo above. Maybe because of the Twisted Loops flower I did before, so they assume I would know how to make her flower design . I got tired of explaining to them how it's done and it's not easy to explain with words, it's a lot easier to explain through a demo via video. I'm not sure why they didn't ask hexiaoxiao57 themselves on how to make the flower. I myself have asked her to make the tutorial too but till now she hasn't made one. So I thought of making my own version of it so that my followers would have an idea of how it's done. It may not be as perfect as hexiaoxiao57's flower but at least it resembles it a bit.
I came up with the idea for the other twisted loops flower design, which is the peach coloured one after I made that blue flower design a few times and I really really love it a lot. It's different because of the way I twisted the loops of the petal. You'll see what I mean after you've watched the video tutorial. I made a few of that design in many colours already. Not sure yet at the moment what I'll make with them but I think I will make simple small cards with them, like Thank you cards or something like gift cards. Yes, that would be cute!
There are many ways to make the center part of the flower, it's all up to your imagination, it doesn't necessarily need to be a fringe flower. As from the photos above, you can see the different types of center part I made, but they're mostly tight coils and you can mix it with bling bling stone stickers. I'm just lazy as well to make fancy center part for the flowers. So I just made simple ones, Ha! Ha!
Anyways, I hope you'll like the tutorial once you've watched it and give the flowers a try. Do check out the video tutorial below and happy quilling guys! ;)
