Spiral roses tutorial

Hello All,

This post is again a quick post, just to post a tutorial as I was struggling with making my spiral roses right! A lot of people make spiral rose tutorials, mine is just an attempt at sharing small tips that help me get a seamless look to my roses :)

Please notice the small things:

1. I cut the outermost edge of the spiral to avoid the 'hollow' at the centre of the rose that you'd get if you kept the tapered end.
2. I use the centre of the circle for gluing the spiral rose, it gives a very continuous unfurling of petal look :)
3. The 'width' of the spiral decreases as I reach the centre. This will make the 'petal' slant outwards as you curl them with decreasing height. No idea about you but I loved that proper spiral look :)
4. At around 0:48, I cut a small part of the spiral to round off the cut. This again helps make a continuous looking rose :)

So, here is the video (followed by the traditional snapshots (for one of my closest "Blends" - Sonia) :)

Happy Quilling PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding........:-)
