Today we have a tutorial by Design Team member Juliana Michaels. We shared how to make the spiral flowers out of pattern paper awhile ago and then Juliana figured that you could easily create the same flower by using the Journaling Sprouts. Perfect timing to share this technique since we have the sprout project contest going on right now. ;)
How to create a rose using Jillibean Soup Sprouts!

1. Select the Sprouts you want to use to create your roses.
2. Start by cutting the Sprout in a spiral motion.
3. Keep the width of the spiral as close to the same width as you can all the way toward the center of the Sprout.
4. Once you are at the center, cut off the last bit leaving a small cut out circle in the center of the spiral cut Sprout.
5. Take your quilling tool and begin to roll the Sprout so that the printed side rolls onto its self. I find that if you very lightly mist the Sprout with water it will roll a little easier.
6. Continue to roll until you have rolled the entire Sprout.
7. Play with the shape of the flower and then apply hot glue to the center on the backside of the flower.
8. Apply more glue as needed to help the flower hold its shape.
9. Finish by gently bending the "petals" back to give the rose a more open and full look.
You can create your own leaves by cutting them from the Canvas flowers, cardstock or patterened paper. Adhere the leaves.
Thank you Juliana! What a fun technique!
Have a good one!
