Today I’m excited to share with you a fun helpful tool in the papercraft world of paper flowers. It’s called an Electric Quilling Tool and today I’ll show you how to use one from out of the box to spinning a flower! I also designed 2 FREE Flower templates to get you going on making awesome paper flowers!
Did you know it is thought that the art of quilling is thought to have originated in Ancient Egypt by the nuns? Talk about a papercraft living a long-continued cherished history and still going strong!
Today I will be focusing on using a quilling tool to spin paper flowers. Plus don’t forget, I am sharing 2 of my FREE Paper Flowers down below! So please keep in mind that the tool I use today would also be very helpful for spinning strips of paper for different forms of papercraft art.

How to get your 2 FREE Flower Templates
I really enjoyed designing these flower templates for you. I always design them in the format you need and my files are always free. These files are in the formats of .svg, .dxf, .png, .pdf. This way whichever cutting machine you use or if you prefer to cut with scissors these files are for you!
I created a simple and easy rolled Rose. What is nice about the easy rolled rose is dependent on how loose or tight and even curl them, they can look so simple and amazing. Especially if you are new to rolling flowers. Myself, I consider them to be very user friendly with a high return in beauty and charm.
Also, I created the Gerbera Daisy Flower. I have to say I have a special place in my heart for this one. I grow these flowers every year from Easter till Fall and love them so much. There are so many different color variety’s the list is nearly endless.
I brought a Gerbera Daisy flower inside and carefully admired its petals and all the different sweet imperfections that only enhance its beauty! What an amazing thought! I then cozied up to my computer cranked up Adobe Illustrator and designed each petal carefully to match nature’s masterpiece!
I also designed the flower file so you can use two different colors or choose one solid color. Yay!
Today I’m making flowers for my Fall Tiered Tray. This was my last year’s design and I’m planning to incorporate paper flowers onto the tray this year!
