- Turn the workpiece angles up and twist the top corner inward.
- Reaching the side corner, bend it inward and round off with your fingers.
- Repeat the previous step for the second side angle.
- We reduce the 2 ends in the lower corner and press them down with your fingers.
- We make 5 more such blanks, repeating steps 1-5.
- We put petals together, we glue them with PVA glue.

Beautiful flowers can be made in the spirit of the technique of quilling. These large-sized large items will decorate the interior or will be a great complement to quilling pictures.

- We expand the workpiece and fold the opposite side.
- Again we develop a square with a double diagonal.
- Turn the square up the top of the folds.
- Fold in the middle, wrap all 4 corners to the fold line.
- Now we fold the triangles, in which the lines turned out, and the inner lines are hidden inside.
- We place the workpiece with the top down and fold the tail-corners tightly against each other.
- The wings of the paper are turned left and right on both sides.
- The tail of one wing is thrust into the other.
- On the other side we duplicate the previous step.
- Smooth the workpiece, push the bud over the folded ends and slam them sharply. The blank is filled with air, and we gently insert a pencil into the formed hole.
- Bend the petals on the bud - create the effect of a blooming tulip.
- We twist a stalk out of a cut piece of paper and insert it in place of a pencil.
In order to make a beautiful volumetric flower out of paper modules, we need A4 sheet.

- Repeat steps 2-7 on the remaining 15 squares.
- In the pockets of one triangle we wind up on the workpiece, clinging to the ends.
- Add another pair.
- Add triangles until they become 14.
- We take the workpiece and with its help close the triangles in a circle.
