Quilling Dragonfly Step by Step

Let’s start creating crafts with wings. First, prepare 4 strips of the following colors.

Sequentially glue them together. Then twist, starting with a yellow strip. We place it in a template with a recess having a diameter of 30 mm.

We take it out carefully, glue the tip.

Squeeze on one side. The first wing for the dragonfly is ready.

We also make the same wing of four strips.

The other pair of wings will be slightly smaller. For one wing we prepare 3 strips.

We glue them sequentially, after which we form a circle measuring 25 mm.

We take out the circle, and fix its tip with glue.

We give it the desired shape, squeezing on one side. We make the same wing. In total, we should get 4 blanks.
