How to make quilled poppies

For two quilled poppies you will need eight red 24”(60 cm)-long and 1/8”(3 mm)-wide strips, adhesive (craft glue), scissors and a lot of pins.

The petals are made using the husking technique, this particular method called also alternate side looping.

For this method you will need also a cork-board (I bought mine in IKEA, it was a trivet in its previous life :).

A foam-board or an old mouse pad would do as well.

I recommend the following to make the assembling of petals easier: wrap the cork-board in wax paper or plastic food wrap,

this prevents quilled elements from sticking to the board when you glue them.
