I had a few old discarded CDs, so thought of making something fun out of it- plus i love quilling! I have tried to detail every step in here , but I am happy to help with any more info or details you need on this. Hope you enjoy this! :)
How To Do it Yourself
What you need- Quilling Paper- Dark Pink - 5 mm -70 strips(My strips were medium length,so if you have extra long strips you can adjust the number accordingly) Quilling Paper- Light Pink- 5 mm- 9 strips Quilling Paper-Yellow - 10 mm -2 strips Quilling Paper-Dark Brown - 10 mm - 2 strips Green Paper- Thick or crepe- for the leaf and stem Blue - Thick Card Paper to cover the CD from both sides White plain paper - cut in two circles of 3cm and 5 cm Glitter - Just for a shimmery look An old CD A hard metal wire to elevate the small lotus A pair of scissors Craft Glue Quilling Tool
Wrap the CD with the blue paper on both ends. Cut the green paper into leaf-shaped circles and stick them onto the CD Sprinkle a bit of glitter onto the leaves Cover the metal wire with green paper- i simply rolled the paper along the length
Stick one strip of yellow quilling paper to one strip of brown and make a fringed flower for the center. Make two such flowers For the big lotus - Make coils out of 9 light pink strips and press each of them to make a marquise shape. Make 6 coils of dark pink (each 2 strips long) and press each to make a drop shape Make 12 coils of dark pink ( each 3 strips long) and press each to make a drop shape For the small lotus- Make coils of 22 dark pink strips and press each of them to make a marquise shape.
For the big lotus- Take the 5 cm white paper circle and place the yellow-brown fringed flower at the center. Then stick the light pink marquise shapes around it in a circle in a standing position and then go for the dark pink ones (2 strip long) at an angle to give it a 3D effect.Give each piece enough time to dry before you go for the next one. Stick the 3 strip long dark pink coils at the end of the circle horizontally. Keep the whole arrangement in your palm and slightly press the fringed flower Stick this onto the CD For the small lotus Take the 3 cm white paper circle and place the yellow-brown fringed flower at the center. Stick the dark pink marquise shapes around the flower - 10 vertically as in the previous step and 12 horizontally on to the paper.Let it dry Stick the covered wire onto the base of the small lotus Assemble everything onto the CD and there you go! :)
