If you are on my email list, you may have seen my recent mailing about my failed project.

I had been working on a project for a while, but it just could n’t come together in the way I was imagining. I pushed up something that I had been planning for a long time.

That is a flower!

There have been puffed sunflowers for a long time. They are very popular.

I tried to make a unique version by making two-toned petals and building it on a comb.

We need to get right to it.

Gathering your supplies is always the first thing you do.

Pale Yellow and Deep Y ellow were used for the petals.

There are 2 shades in the center of the sunflowers. I chose Chocolate Brown and Light Brown from Craft Harbor.

You will need a needle tool, comb, scissors, and glue.

The petals are the first thing.

Even though they are going to be built on a comb, you will need a needle tool to start.

Roll the end of your yellow strips around your tool a few times. This will hold your paper in place on your comb.

It does n’t matter which yellow shade you use for this first step. You will repeat this many times with both colors.

Remove the roll from the needle tool and slide it onto the middle part of the comb.

Start weaving!

Pull the tail of your paper strip under the anchor. Pull it up over your anchor.

Next, bring it back down to the ground.

The paper is being looped around and around, with one prong on each end.

Continue under until you have wrapped your strip around the anchor.

Add a thin line of glue to secure the excess paper.

Just like in the photo below, leave enough paper to adhere it along the entire back.

You can remove the entire piece after glue.

You will have to make a few of these.

They happen very quickly once you get the hang of it.

3 of the comb loops will be used to make the petals. You will want to make a shade of yellow paper for each of the petals.

To finish the petals, apply a very thin line of glue on one edge.

There are two yellow loops, one light and one dark.

Glue should be applied between every section.

To finish the shape, pinch the ends.

Continue in the same way.

I made some petals with 2 deep yellow sections and 1 light yellow, and some with the opposite combination.

The variation would give the paper more life.

You will need to make 14 smaller petals.

The only difference is that you will be weaving around the center of the comb.

If you want to learn how to build your flower petals on a quilling comb, check out my previous instructions. They are really similar.

You can move on to the center of your sunflowers after your petals are all made.

I decided to use 2 different colors of brown paper.

Roll two strips of dark Chocolate Brown in a tight coil on your tool.

I apologize for the glue dots on the coil. I did n’t notice the little buggers popped up until I was editing the photos for this post, even though I used clear glue for this step.

Add a strip of Light Brown paper to the coil.

Attach the end to it with glue.

When your coil has grown to about an inch and a half in diameter, keep alternating lengths of dark and light brown paper.

I did not keep exact measurements for these strips. The flower centers were a little different as I was making them. They need to vary the brown colors so they make rings.

Push the center of the coil up from the bottom to form a dome. To keep the shape, apply a thin layer of glue to the underside.

The fringe that will go along the edge of the center is the last step.

I had to build a wider paper strip because I wanted the fringe to sit a little taller.

Spread a thin line of glue along the long end of a brown paper strip.

The strip on top barely overlaps the edge of the first.

It is very easy for the glue to make a mess or the strips to dry crookedly if you apply the glue to an inch or so.

If you already have wider quilling strips in the dark brown color, you could save these steps.

Either way, once you have your wider strips made, cut some fringe on the entire length, taking care to only cut about halfway down.

Glue the end of your fringe to the dome.

Glue the other end to keep it in place.

It is time to put your sunflowers together.

The bigger the flower petals, the better.

Add a dot of glue wherever the petals touch in the circle.

There is glue around the outside of the dome.

The dome should be on top of the flower petals.

The flower petals should be added for the last step.

They should be placed on top of the first layer of petals, but not right on top. I wanted to get them between the bigger petals.

I put glue on the end and on the underside to make them more secure.

When they are done, the finished quilling paper sunflowers are a nice size.

It makes sense since sunflowers can grow up to 10 feet tall.

I made one that was slightly smaller by weaving my petals through less of my comb.

You can always add some greenery.

These quilling paper sunflowers come to life with just a few moss green swirls.

I am very happy with how these turned out.

I hope you are as well.
