Master class on making flowers from corrugated paper
Making a simple flower
To make a simple flower with your own hands, for example, to decorate a gift package, you need a minimum set of materials, consisting of:
- colored corrugated paper;
- round object (diameter depends on the size of the future flower);
- circle of cardboard.
The manufacturing process begins with the fact that you need to cut out circles of paper of the size you need. To get a sample, as in the photo, you will need 12 small circles, which will later become petals. Each of them should be shaped, wrapping one edge in a sharp corner. For convenience, you can fix it using ordinary PVA glue. The petal itself will become slightly convex, resembling a real one.
Taking a small circle of cardboard, on its edge should be positioned and secured 5 finished petals.The next row of 4 petals should be placed closer to the center. In the middle we glue the remaining 3 circles.
Getting to the formation of the core. To do this, we cut off a long strip of corrugated paper, fold it in half and make a fringe along the entire length with scissors. Then we twist a smooth edge on a skewer. Formed core fix glue and attach between the petals. The result was a simple but beautiful flower of corrugated paper.
These spring flowers do it yourself is not so difficult to do. In addition, children can be connected to the manufacturing process and together create a beautiful bouquet for a gift or for interior decoration.
First you need to prepare the necessary materials. In order to personally create tulips, you will need:
- yellow, green, and red crepe paper;
- scissors with sharp blades;
- tape tape;
The process begins with the preparation of petals and stem. To do this, cut the segmentred corrugated paper. For medium-sized tulip petals, a length of 3x18 cm is sufficient. This strip should be folded to make a rectangle 4 cm wide.From it we cut the base in the form shown in the photo. We form petals from the obtained blanks, wrapping a narrow edge, and bending and stretching the top with two fingers. Thus it is necessary to process all the blanks to get the petals, as in the photo.
Getting to build a tulip, you need to prepare the stem. To do this, a piece of wire must be wrapped with green tape. Attach a bud to its top. It remains to wrap the junction with a strip of corrugated paper smeared with glue and attach a leaf to the stalk. Now the artificial spring tulip is ready.
How to make paper crocuses?
Having learned how to make tulips with your own hands, you can start making crocuses from corrugated paper. To get such wonderful crafts, we need almost the same materials as in the options described above.You can create artificial crocuses from corrugated paper of green, yellow and white colors. In addition, you will need:
- glue or thread;
- green tape tape.
It is advisable to use corrugated paper thinner. This will allow you to create artificial products, very similar to real ones.
Start the manufacturing process with cutting the petals. To do this, you will need 2.5x13 cm rectangles cut from yellow corrugated paper in the direction of the lines, at the rate of 3 strips per crocus. Each strip must be twisted in the middle twice, folded in halves and leveled so that the petal shown in the photo is obtained.
The lower edges of the petals should be rolled up and fixed with glue or threads. Then you should insert a wire in the middle and start wrapping the flower with a tape or a strip of paper from the base, moving to the wire.
For the manufacture of leaves, you can take a lighter paper corrugation. We cut a 1.5 cm wide strip out of it. Then we wrap the edges inwards and connect the bottom of the sheet with the bud. Hand-made crocuses made of corrugated paper can be decorated in the form of a beautiful bouquet placed in a wicker basket.
Sunflowers from paper corrugation
In order to create small solar crafts with your own hands, you must first prepare the following set:
- corrugated paper in yellow, green and brown colors;
- skewer or twig;
- PVA glue;
- green tape;
- a small piece of wire.
Getting to the manufacture of petals. You will need a bright yellow corrugated paper, which must be cut into strips of 4x6 cm. We round their edges inward, smoothing the cuts. For sepals and leaves will need strips of green corrugated paper. They should be folded on the same principle as the petals.
When all the blanks are ready, you can collect crafts with your own hands. To do this, glue the petals in several rows to the base of the core, and then sepals.We fix the flower on the wire and start wrapping the craft with a tape from the base to the bottom edge of the wire. It remains to fix the leaves on the stem and the sunflower from the most accessible material is ready.
Corrugated paper roses are not as difficult to make with your own hands as many think. Especially, if you have previously created such flowers. For the creative process will need to prepare:
- red and green paper corrugation;
- PVA glue;
To make a rose, you first need to cut the petals. To do this, you can use the example shown in the photo.
For roses of medium size, you will need about a dozen large petals, 8 medium and 5 narrow each. Each blank must be given an approximate shape of real colors, stretching the edges with your fingers. Then you can collect a flower, starting to wind one petal on the top edge of the wire, starting with the narrowest and ending with large ones.
When the flower is assembled, the base must be smeared with glue, and while it dries, the leaves should be prepared. It is important to try to cut the billet with sharp edges, so that they resemble the casting of real roses.
You need to finish the assembly by starting to wrap the tape with the tape from the base along the entire length of the wire. Leaves can be fixed anywhere on the stem where you want. As a result, you get a beautiful artificial flower, made by hand, which can become an original piece of interior decor.
As you can see from this article, making flowers from corrugated paper with your own hands is not difficult. This exciting process can be quite a promising hobby that can be shared with children.
