Teeny Tiny Rose Tutorial
Since the team over at Fantabulous Cricut http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/2011/08/thursdays-tutorial-birthday-projects.html choose to feature my tea light cake and teeny tiny roses, I thought I should do a tutorial!
You can use any scallop circle and size it according to your project. I used Elegant Edges and 1.25 inch circles for the roses I made for the tea light cake. If your image doesn't have a center circle cut out, use Design Studio, a Gypsy, CricutCraftRoom or a punch to add one.
Then snip between two of the scallops (anywhere is fine).
Take your quilling tool and insert the end to the left of where you cut the scallops.
Begin rolling the quilling tool toward you, keeping the paper tight around it.
When you reach the end of the strip, pull the rose off and let it "relax" a bit. Then glue the end to the roll.
Let the glue dry and use your fingernails to bend back some of the scallops.
And, there you have it. . .a cute teeny tiny rose for your project!
