To make flowers, roll the quilling strips in to tight coils using quilling tool and twist them in to tear drop shape. stick four tear drops together to form a flower. Attach the flower to the floral wire which was wrapped using green floral tape . Repeat this process and make several flowers with various colored quilling strips. And then attach the flowers to the branches of the tree.
