These shapes will be shaped into a petal with the center of the coil at the pointed end of the petal. So to make these, just pinch the end with the center into a point. Because of the bunch of strips this point probably won't be to pointy! Also you can pinch the opposite side of the center and it will look like the pink flower pinned next to the purple petals. The pink one is glued and pinned to get a tight center at the points.
Next you can either can glue it and pin it together like the pink one or you can make a fringe center and glue the petals to it, or on top of the flower, see below. Look closely at the ends of the petals and you will see what I mean about the coil joining spot. You can see it below on several of the petals. So decide beforehand where it will be in your shape. You can hide it at the point of a shape or as I said before in the center of the flower under other quilled shapes.
The next picture is the same double layer flower as is on the purse gift bag at the first of the post, but without a center. To get this look just make your eccentric flowers using a larger length strip for the bottom flower and a shorter length strips for the top flower and glue on top of each other and add a center of your choice.
These shapes can also be shaped with curled tips and I made this little orchid from 6" strips and put a quilled bell shape for the mouth of the orchid. You are only limited by your imagination to how to use these eccentric circles. Experiment with sizes and shaping, it's fun and you never know what you may come up with!
Details of the Pink Purse Gift Bag. This is the last of the projects for this month's Custom Quilling Newsletter. I used the same flowers as was on the Spring Verse but used buttons for their centers and only used one double layer flower. I added the pearls and faux stitching a beaded handle and little tassel to finish it off. The purse itself is a Sizzix die and is easy to put together and embellish with quilling and edge punches.
Since this is my first tutorial I want to make sure that it is understandable and clear, please leave me some feedback on it. Was it clear? Could you reproduce an eccentric coil after reading how to do it? Any other suggestions or requests. Thanks for your feedback, I want to improve my tutorials and give you the best instructions and answer any questions you may have! Also a request, please pray for my sister as she has lost another child at 12 weeks, they named him Anthony Benedict. They are grieving and having a hard time, thank you lifting them up to the Lord.
