What can you give a woman for a holiday? Million options, but still the most versatile are flowers. A huge variety of bright representatives of the flora is unlikely to leave indifferent at least one individual of the female sex. Flowers always cheer up, they can say what, in fact, words can not be expressed. Having correctly selected a flower arrangement, you can not only make a person a pleasant surprise, but also explain your feelings. But there is one drawback of natural flowers. Whatever one may say, sooner or later all the flowers fade and lose their original appearance. Therefore, I propose to make a similar bouquet of flowers with your own hands, while it will please the eye forever.The best gift that was made by yourself hands, so try to make a bouquet of paper colorful colors from what every home has. For work you will need: • colored double-sided paper; • PVA glue; • • old newspapers; • threads; • a wrapper from a floralbouquets; • desire, patience and free time. The first stage of work - preparation of the base The basis on which flowers will be attached can be done in two ways. Let's consider each of them. 1. Papier mache. The base can be made when applying paper pieces on a balloon. To do this, you need to inflate a normal ball to the size that determines the size of our bouquet.
Next, take unnecessary newspapers and cut them into small pieces. The surface of the ball is lubricated with baby cream so that the paper does not stick, and we begin to apply pieces of paper pre-wetted with water. When the surface of the ball is completely covered with a paper layer, it is necessary to apply a second layer, only instead of water you need to use PVA glue. After the done procedures, give 12 hours to dry, then pierce the ball and remove its pieces from the base cavity. 2. Take a lot of unnecessary newspapers and form one ball of the desired size.After that, fix the shape, dragging along the contour with dense threads for knitting. The form is ready.The first method is quite time consuming and takes a huge amount of time compared to the second, but with papier-mâché the surface of the ball is ideal but smooth, which makes it easier to glue flowers to it. The basis made by the second method is very easy and fast to perform, but the process of gluing flowers is complicated by an uneven surface. When the base is ready you can start making flowers themselves. Making flowers - this is the most painstaking work that will require perseverance. The size of the flowers, their color and quantity depends entirely on the imagination. I take two-sided colored paper and first of all I cut it into 3 cm stripes. The size of the flower will depend on the thickness of the strip, the thicker it is, the bigger the flower is. Further, with the help of scissors, you need to make a fringe on the strips, without finishing it to the end. When a strip with a fringe is ready it can be twisted into a flower with the help of a match or a toothpick.The edge of the strip should be fixed with PVA glue to the bottom of the flower. Follow the same pattern with other flowers.Next stage Is the gluing of colors to the base. To do this, we smear the bottom of the flower with glue and fasten it to our base. We let the glue dry and go to the production of the bouquet's leg.Twist out of green paper tubules and gently stretch them under the warp, you can additionally secure them with duct tape. After the flowers are tightly glued to the base, they can be arranged in a bouquet, but before that you should make hearts for flowers. Cut out small circles from different colors of paper and fasten them with glue to the center of the flower. To give a bouquet of elegance, you can take the old packaging from flowers and place our bouquet there, decorating it with greenery and butterflies.The bouquet is ready! Such a bright gift will always please the eye and carry a positive.
