Hello Everyone!
This is Another Special Bouquet Card
For Our Another Arabic Teacher
On behalf of All the Students,
It is also a Thank you Card,
For Details check the step by step Instructions.
Thank you!

Dear friends,
The tutorial is almost the same as in my previous post,
A Flower Bouquet Card (Card no.28)
only few things i have changed and used instead of other things, and the new thing about this card is i made two of the red roses myself (through quilling technique) and i have explained that through pictures below, so follow the instructions, and here you go!


Step 1
I crumbled the light brown paper, and opened and pressed with iron, to give it a distressed messy look.

Step 2
I tear it with the help of a steel ruler to the size i wanted on the card.

Step 3
Then Adhere the paper to the card using Roller tape (its the best) or you can use any glue stick.

Step 4
Then I made the Flower bouquet the same way i did before in (Flower Bouquet Card)
but this time i used some Handmade Red Roses and some ready made Peach Roses
See the instructions how i made the Red Roses below.

I Colour the Plain white silky leaves to Green leaves.

And Here is my Flower Bouquet which is ready to use on Card.

Step 5
I collected some mesh, in Red and Peach Colour and some Tieing stuff (its not a thread nor a ribbon, you can called it a string but its not that even *smiles*) you may have seen it on a cake or bakery boxes, which is wrapped/closed through this sort of a ribbon/string.

I neatly tie a Bow of that string, and attached the peach mesh with the school glue at the bottom.

I put the Red Mesh square under the Bouquet Diagonally, and added some dry stems into the bouquet and made the tag finally.

That's all!

How to make Quilled Roses.
Materials You'll be needing are:
  1. Thin Red Strip of paper ( I took 3/4 " x 12" long strip approx)
  2. Quilling Tool or a Wooden tooth pick (you can use that too)
  3. Tissue Dotted Ribbon (Any thick width wise Ribbon)
  4. A Coloured Wire ( I used Green Wire)
  5. Green Crepe Paper or Tissue Paper or Kite Paper (use some thin stuff)
Quilling Roses are easy to make,
use a Quiling tool or a wooden tooth pick (it works, I have done with that too)

Start rolling your red strip of paper, (if you are using a tooth pick, then do glue the strip at the very beginning, roll once and stick it there,using glue, then continue rolling, so it will not fall or come out)

So Start rolling the paper, make some spirals (swirls) then turn your strip at a 90 degree right angle, downwards, and keep rolling with that turning, (don't worry if it goes messy) turn again and again at 90 degrees downwards every time and keep rolling your tool, until you finish your strip.
Now just make it loose and glue the end of the Strip to the rose.

I hope it will help you all.

After i made the roses, I cut the dotted tissue ribbon in square and the green kite paper in Star shape and attached them together to the rose, at the bottom and then wired the Rose.

This is the Ready bouquet which i used on the Card.

That's all Folks!
Happy Bouquet making!
Be happy always!
