Free Quilled Spiral Rose

This is a very simple fast version of a quilled rose, hope you enjoy it!

Draw or trace circle shape onto paper of your choice. Cut out the shape following the spiral line.
With the backside of the circle facing towards you start to roll the shape with a slotted tool at point 1 rolling until you reach point 2, let the rose loosen slightly then glue this end to the outside of the rose. Add a couple of punched leaves and the rose is complete!

Size of rose maybe adjusted by making a larger or smaller circle.
For a different look decorative scissors can be used to cut out the spiral.
Try chalking along the line for a shaded effect.
The edges of the rose can be embossed with metallic embossing powders.
Two toned paper (each side a different hue) is also very effective when making these roses.
Have fun making a garden of roses!!
