How to make a quilled fringed flower.

In the following pictures I will try to show you how to make a quilled fringed flower.    

First I cut a wide piece of scrapbook paper
and then a thinner piece of paper.
Taking the wider piece, I cut small cuts to make the
fringe careful not to cut all the way to the end.
I then start the flower by wrapping the smaller strip of paper on my slotted tool (or toothpick) and when I get to the end I glue the wider, fringed piece to the end of the narrow strip and proceed to roll it evenly and tightly until I get to the end.
 I add a small amount of glue to hold it in place.
 I then take the flower off of the tool and after it dries, I gently take my thumb and push the fringe away from the center thus completing the flower!
