Also, the flower "wall" will be an excellent photozone at the celebration. Consider step-by-step instructions on how to create a rose. For work you will need:

  • Corrugated paper of two or more colors: green on the stem and leaves, white for the core and pink for the extreme petals of the bud.
  • Scissors.
  • Prepared petal template.
  • Wire for the stem.
  • Glue.

Using a pattern of paper, cut out the blanks of the petals. During the work, the material is not recommended to stretch, since the corrugation is not collected again. To make a natural bud, the petals should be of different sizes. Of the smallest gather a dense bud, laying them on top of each other and gluing from below. Then the flower begins to wrap with new petals, which also anchor at the base. After the bud is collected, they can be slightly stretched, giving the desired shape and volume. Now you need to cut a couple of leaves. Wire wrap a piece of paper diagonally. Gradually, the lateral short wires for the leaves "weave" into the stem. Secure them with new layers of paper strip. Leaves to them are glued from the "wrong side". Finish work by fixing the flower on the stem. To create a blossoming rose, a ribbon of corrugated paper from one edge is cut with a wavy line, and then twisted. Such a flower decor can decorate a house not only for holidays. A bouquet or topiary made from luxurious buds is suitable for any room: kitchen, bedroom, living room.

The sheet is folded "accordion", and then glue each section on one side. To make the decoration look more solid, choose a paper with a pattern or decorate it yourself.

To learn how to work in the quilling technique, you need a well-developed fine motor hand. It is with the fingers that each element is shaped, and there are more than thirty of them in quilling: tight and free spirals, paws, arrows, horns, eyes, semicircles, ordinary and curved drops, sheets, triangles, curls, crescents, squares.


Since it is too long to cut colored paper into strips for a long time, it is easier to purchase a ready-made set, which also includes tweezers and a special stick with a longitudinal notch at the end. In this slot insert and fix the tip of the tape, which is then wound. If you need a tight spiral, then the tip is immediately fixed with glue. By the way, most of these elements are made by novice pictures. To give a different shape, the twisted strip is carefully removed from the stick and manipulated with your fingers to create corners or flattening. Then the element is glued to the canvas. In the quilling technique, masters make complex modular paintings, where more than 20-30 colors are used.

Origami относится к одной из самых сложных техник. Сложить журавлика, кораблик, лягушку или тюльпан достаточно просто, но это далеко не предел для мастеров. Главная трудность и основное правило в классическом оригами — бумагу нельзя рвать, резать, склеивать или закреплять иным методом. Фигурка должна быть цельной. Модульное оригами предполагает создание множества фрагментов сложной фигуры, которые «вкладываются» друг в друга опять же без использования клея. В «мокрой» технике можно смачивать бумагу из пульверизатора, чтобы получились мягкие изгибы. Обычно это требуется при создании фигурок животных.

Panno and posters

To create a panel of paper, do not need a complicated, step-by-step instruction or detailed guidance. The technique can be any. The main thing is that the picture has a volume. The simplest version is the use of corrugated paper or folding a leaf in such a way that its edges protrude beyond the frame. It is difficult to draw posters on your own, therefore photo printing will come to the aid. As already mentioned above, they are additionally manually decorated with colored pieces of paper to distinguish accent zones.

Jewelry is like a change of seasons, should periodically leave the interior to give a place to new ones that will help look at the slightly bored design from a different angle.
