Who would have thought that ordinary papernapkins are able to become comfortable, plastic and, most importantly, "docile" material for making flowers, if you put this material into skilful hands? Flowers made from napkins are so simple that even children are taught this at handicraft lessons in kindergarten and in elementary school. But since we have already come out of this blessed age, we will have to master this technique, so to speak, after. But it's never too late to learn and nobody is ashamed. Therefore, we learn to make original and simple flowers from napkins with our own hands.
Buds of roses from single-layer napkins
For the production of pink buds we will needusual single-layer napkins of bright color (red, burgundy, orange - on flowers, green - on leaves), threads and toothpicks. The work is carried out in several stages:
That's all, a pink bud of napkins is ready. By the way, for such buds you can use napkins of two colors (pink and red, orange and burgundy) and make a middle of napkins of the same color, and the remaining "petals" from the other.
Dandelions from three-layer napkins
These flowers we will be out of doing yellowthree-layer napkins. By the way, you can make not only dandelions by your own hands and this method, but, for example, carnations. Only for this purpose it is necessary to take napkins of other color (although not necessarily) and use more layers. So, we need: three-layer napkins, scissors, a stapler.
To make a carnation, use all three layers of the napkin and do not cut along the circumference, or make them very short, but frequent (fringed).
Roses from napkins
To make paper roses of your own hands "likereal ", we need napkins red (white, pink, orange, etc.) - for petals and green - for the stem and leaves, scissors, wire for the stem and a thin needle to twist the petals. So, we proceed.
Of such flowers made from napkins its ownhands, you can make a tree of happiness (topiary). You can use them to make souvenirs (for example, valentines). Colors of paper napkins can be decorated with a festive table or a sweet bouquet. Yes, you never know why you might need artificial flowers! The very process of creating them will give you a lot of pleasure. And if you involve children in this creative process, their enthusiasm will not be limited! With your hands, from ordinary napkins - almost real flowers! And believe me, the creation of flowers from napkins will help you master the skills of two handcrafts at once: paper plastics and floristry. And if you are going to do your own flowers for a sweet bouquet, then master the sweat design (the art of composing compositions from sweets). But this is already a topic for a separate conversation.
