Postcard for May 9 from clay with cloves
If you depict carnation flowers on a postcard dedicated to May 9th, you won’t regret it. It is customary to congratulate veterans with these flowers, as well as to lay bouquets on the graves of fallen soldiers. Flowers of bright color are a symbol of the blood spilled by soldiers of the Red Army during the Great Patriotic War in the battles for our peaceful life.
Carnations can be made from paper, drawn or made from clay, as suggested in this master class. We present to you an interesting lesson on the creation of crafts on May 9 from plasticine, decorated with a bouquet of carnations, as well as a fragment of St. George's ribbon. Thus, you will learn how to create lush bouquets of flowers in a light technique, and also get an interesting thematic handicraft on the Victory Day.

Just in this lesson it is shown that you can make the background not monotonous, but mix several pieces together at once and stick them on top of the cardboard. If the mass is very soft, it can easily be smeared onto a paper surface. Thus, use several different pieces, and the surface will turn out really marble.
You can use red and pink clay to create carnation heads. Tear off small pieces of the bars, knead in your hands, then make oblong cakes with jagged edges. It all depends on exactly what color you want to show, but more often the carnations for Victory Day are depicted in red or pink. The same amount of detail depends on how many flowers you want to show in a bouquet.
Collect 2 or 3 fragments in one flower. Ribbons should be assembled on one side and, if you use 2 or 3 pieces, then glue them together. Then stack the notches and randomly make the notches, as shown in the photo. These are the lush details with jagged edges and will become the buds of the carnation.
Make very thin and long green threads, it will be quivering and thin stalks of florets. And the leaves of the carnation are also inconspicuous. Make elongated flat plates, pointed at the ends. Also prepare a long sausage to create the number 9 in any color.
Stick as many stalks on the card, forming a bouquet in the form of a fan, how many do you want to make flowers. Also add the leaves and paste the number 9 on any place. To make this figure, simply bend the appropriately prepared sausage.
Attach your flower head to the top of each petal. You can make the heads go beyond the cardboard base. Then the hand-crafted item will be voluminous, more interesting.
You can also add the word "May", continuing the theme of the number 9. And also make a piece of St. George ribbon of orange and black sausages. Stick it on a free place. Victory Day themed crafts are ready.
Postcard with a flag to the Victory Day of plasticine
Popular greeting souvenirs for May 9 are postcards. In groups of kindergartens, in schools for creative activities such crafts are made with their own hands from various materials.

To make the same postcard as suggested on the final photo is not so difficult, let's take a step-by-step look at how.
To create a greeting card we need:
- base is cardboard;
- material - plasticine;
- tools - stack, matches, toothpicks.
It is difficult to say at once what colors of clay you may need for work. Definitely, you will have to take advantage of the scarlet bar, if your plans include a molding of a red banner, black and orange, if you want to show the St. George ribbon and so on.
Apply a thin plasticine background to the cardboard so that later all parts of the overall composition are well stuck to it. Consider using the orange background
Make a central scarlet canvas - a red banner. Under this flag, the soldiers of the Red Army swiftly rushed into battle, did not spare themselves and destroyed the bloody fascists. It is possible to consider such a fragment a completely worthy element of a postcard. The shape of the canvas should be rectangular. Along the edge, let the yellow edging.
Press the yellow sausage edge along the length of the toothpick.to show a fancy fringe. Also prepare two yellow tassels to cap the holder. Use the same toothpick as a support.
Glue a banner to the postcard. First holder, stick on it brown clay. Then glue the flag and flex it as if the canvas is developing in the wind. Stick on the top of the brush.
On the other hand, paste the number 9 and the word May. To make the inscription look more elegant, push the tip of the toothpick along the entire length of the figure and the letter.
At the bottom (at the foot of the picture) paste a bright bouquet of flowers. Make a few tulips with green stalks. Glue them to the orange base. On top of the bouquet, hang a thin St. George ribbon, which also needs to be carefully made from plasticine.
In general, the picture can be considered finished, but if there is a desire to fill the gaps, you can stick orange and black balls into the empty spaces (this color scheme will work), then pierce each toothpick. The thin frame will also look beautiful.
Victory Day greeting card
Colored paper is an affordable material that allows needlewomen to fantasize endlessly. For example, on May 9, you can make such a bright and colorful card.
We will need:
- colored (preferably double-sided) paper;
- cardboard blue or blue;
- floss or thin knitting thread for three colors.
To create the main attribute of the Victory Day, the St. George ribbon, it is necessary to cut out one wide (2.5 cm) strip of orange paper and three narrow (0.5 cm) of black paper. The length of all strips should be the same.
Glue the two black parts on the edges of the orange. Place the third one in the middle, making sure that all 5 lanes are evenly distributed and equal in width.
Get the resulting St. George ribbon glued diagonally in the upper left corner, and then cut off the excess.
From the paper of olive or golden color, cut out the number nine and paste it in the upper left part of the postcard, layering a little on the St. George ribbon.
For a bud of a carnation, you need to cut 6-8 circles from red double-sided paper.
Fold the cups and fold them in four.
Now, with scissors, make a fringe from the edge to the center.
Glue the bud under the number and slightly fluff it with your fingers;
Now you need to make a flower stem. To do this, cut a wide strip of green paper. Twist it diagonally tightly with adhesive. Then cut the required length and stick to the card. Cut and attach to the stalk narrow long leaves.
Take the paper in three different colors and cut the balloons.
Next, cut out the colored letters of the word "may" and stick them on the balls.Do not forget that the colors should be contrasting.
Cut out the star from the red paper, glue three different colored strings to it from the back, and then attach it to the bottom left of the postcard.
From the other end of each thread you need to glue the ball, and then consistently place along the right edge of the card. It is not necessary to completely glue the details so that our hand-made article on May 9 looked more voluminous.
Postcard with the Red Star yourself
You can use paper and plates to make this postcard. Cardboard will become the basis of the product, and plasticine is designed to create a volumetric pattern on the canvas in the form of thematic applications.
To create a postcard by May 9, prepare:
- cardboard with a plasticine background applied on it;
- bars from the set, choose colors depending on the planned pattern;
- toothpick and stack.
The background for drawing a picture can be any, but preferably joyful and bright, because we all celebrate Victory Day with great enthusiasm. For example, orange will suit.
Even if you have colored cardboard, it is still better to cover its surface with a layer of clay so that all parts can be securely fixed on its surface in the future. In this case, they will not tear themselves away.
The central detail can be made a prototype of the legendary Order in the form of a Red Star with a sickle and a hammer in the center. Stick the red cake in the center. Put a white ring around it.
With the edge of a toothpick, gently apply the words “World War II” to the white edging, in which case we will try to get an exact copy of the order. It will be very difficult to draw words with clay, since the details will be very small. In the center, glue the bright sickle and hammer, and around the circumference, press the points with a toothpick.
Separately form the red and white plasticine rays for the star. Attach around the circumference of the prepared parts, alternating by color. Additionally, apply relief with a stack or a toothpick. An important award for military merit for this hero is ready.
Now you can dream up and think about what else you can decorate the greeting card, dedicated to Victory Day. For example, on May 9, you can always see a big fireworks in big cities. Bright highlights can also be depicted on the canvas.
Slap a few thin sausages, stick to each of them on a small cake, use plasticine of a different color. Toothpick or stack turn the tortillas into sparks of salute. Fill the top of the picture with such details.
Finish the fireworks. At the bottom, glue the number 9 and a few more colors, preferably red. Usually in the spring to the monuments lay carnations, lilacs or tulips. You can make a copy of buds of any kind.
And the final finishing touch, which is also important - is the frame for the resulting picture. It also needs to be made from plasticine, use any color for this.
