When doing flowers, how do you make the edges of the petals curl? Is there a special tool you use for this?

Thanks!

I have a tool that has a petal roller on it that I use on a mouse pad. Take a look at youtube for how-to videos.

I don't have a specific tool but will grab whatever is in my tool spindle such as a pencil, screw driver shaft or anything that is a small diameter that I can curl the petals around. I also like to do a vintage look by scrunching. I do this by cutting several layers of different sizes, spritz with water, wad each one up like your throwing away a piece of paper, blow dry with heat gun or blow dryer and then gently unfold, and layer. Here are a few that I have in my stash.

I've seen tutorials where a bone folder tool is used on the edges. Run it along the edges until they curl to your liking.

Wow. . .those are some great flowers!

I usually use the quilling tool to make the edges roll a bit.

Depending on what size flower I am making I use anywhere from a skewer to a sock needle. I also have a set of round ball tools (they have a name but can't think of it right now)that I use for adding texture and fullness to the petals.
