To make a miniature flower pot, you will need to glue two or three strips of quilling paper to make a long strip. Make a tight coil with the long strip of paper. Use a pencil to press into the centre of the coil until it forms the shape of a flower pot. Apply glue to the inside of the pot to strengthen it and to retain the shape.
To create a miniature daffodil flower, make five yellow teardrop coils and one small tight coil. Push the centre of the small coil outwards. Arrange the teardrop coils around the small coil to form the shape of a flower. Gently glue the teardrop coils to the small coil.
Trim toothpick to about four centimetres and glue the flower to the top of the toothpick.
Cut two green strips of paper to make the leaves. Glue the green leaves to lower end of the toothpick.
Planting the Flower in the Pot
Put the flower in the pot. Line the pot with strips of brown paper and apply glue to secure the paper and flower to the pot.
Make a few more pots and flowers. Place the pots of flowers in a display box and use Blu-tack or a glue gun to secure the items to the box.
A flower vase is can be created with two flower pots. One of the pots will need to have a hole in the middle (for putting flowers). Glue the flower pot upside down to the second pot.
