Master class set "Apple Blossom"

Hair band and brooch made of plastic suede.

And start with a selection of materials for making a wonderful kit. We will prepare:

  • - plastic suede of white and olive color.

  • - scissors.

  • - basis for a brooch.

  • - an iron rim.

  • - Thin double-sided tape.

  • - wire.

  • - floristic green adhesive tape.

  • - a plastic print for leaves.

  • - lighter.

  • - glass decorative ball.

  • - foam sponge.

  • - dry pastel.

  • - foil.

  • - wet wipes.

  • - stamens for flowers.

  • - Moment glue.

  • - wire cutters.

And move on to manufacturing. For the whole composition we will produce 10 large flowers and 5 smaller ones. Another 14 buds and 20 leaves. We will work without templates. Let's start with the big flower petals. From white suede we cut strips 2 cm wide.

Then we make 50 squares of them with a side of 2 cm.

Next, cut out the petals from each blank. We hold the square by one corner, and the rest are simply neatly rounded.

And we make petals for smaller flowers from 1.5 cm squares and cut 63 pieces.

In the same way, we make leaves from green suede using preforms of 2 cm in size. We cut only the side corners.

From the same green blanks of 2 cm you need to cut the sepals for 14 buds. Such a detail is like a flower with 4 petals. The square should be folded in half two times and get a square divided into 4 equal parts. And the corners of the square will serve as the tops of the sepals. Scissors cut out only the recesses between the petals.

Now go to the wire. For leaves, we cut 13 blanks of 8 cm long. The buds need 14 segments, 6 cm long. And for the flowers we will use 16 pieces of 5 cm each. We will begin to process all these details with flower blanks. We attach 3 stamens to six segments. And we attach five stamens to the remaining 10 parts. And on top of these cooked parts we wind a floristic green ribbon, well covering the junction of the wire with the stamens. Then the tape should go through all the prepared wire blanks.

Now we turn to the processing of all cut parts. Let's start with the green leaves. First, cut small incisions along the edge. Under the heat of the lighter they open beautifully. Then we need veins along the leaves. They can be done in two ways. The first is just to draw with a toothpick on the front of the sheet. And in the second method, we heat the workpiece with a lighter and quickly apply a sheet texture to a plastic fingerprint. We press firmly and we also get streaks.

Next, the resulting leaves with green pastel do a little tint around the edges. Just with a damp cloth, we pick up a little paint and draw along the leaves on both sides. Additionally, we warm up quite a bit with the lighter on the wrong side of the middle of the sheet and bend the part in half, reinforcing the central vein.

We continue to work with leaves. On 13 cooked large stems, fasten the leaves. You can simply stick to the center of the part, and we will do with reinforcing holding. We pierce the sheet twice with the wire from the base upwards, and then glue the edges of the wire and the bottom of the sheet. Then, if desired, you can further tint the junction.

Now we turn to the sepals. They should be tinted on two sides, first two opposite parts and the other two on the second side. And the processing is very simple. Fold again the part two times in half and scroll with your fingers, then straighten it a bit.

Then we begin to make the basics for the buds. It will take 14 pieces of foil with a side of about 8 cm. Roll up the balls. The value is determined by the length of the small petals, which should completely lie down from bottom to top on the foil. We make a recess on the ball with the corner of the scissors. And on the wire on one side we make a small loop. Then we insert the wire into the recess and with scissors press the upper edge of the foil tightly to the wire. We get the stem with the base for the bud.

It's time to work with flower petals. Let's start with coloring. With a wet towel, we collect pink paint and pass along the lower corner of the petal from two sides. Then we add several pieces together and paint them with the sides of the cut. We process all the petals equally.

Now you need to give a new shape to the colored petals. We will use a glass decorative ball to help. Hold the petal by the sharp edge, heat the lighter from below, quickly place it on the foam rubber and immediately press it with the ball.

It turns out small recesses. We make all the petals the same.

Now we have all the basic details ready. And move on to the assembly of the buds. For one, you need a stem with a base, sepals and 3 small petals. Glue the petals in turn on the foil, the main thing is to completely cover the entire base. Then insert the wire into the middle of the green part, lift it up and stick it on the bud.

Next we will make small flowers. Prepare a stalk with 3 stamens and 4 smaller petals.

Glue the petals in a circle to the stamens, apply glue only to the very edge of the workpieces. Small flowers are half closed. And so that large flowers are opened, you need to additionally bend down a sharp edge on each petal. We warm a little with a lighter and adjust the slope down. It is only necessary to take into account that the concave part of the petal and the bend of the corner are directed downward. And when assembling the flower itself, we use a stem with 5 stamens and five petals. Which we try to stick only for the bent bottom of the part. We arrange them in a circle.

Now let's start collecting the brooch. Initially, we attach the blank for the brooch to a wire base, this will give a strong base for the entire brooch. Take thin and thicker in volume wire, the smallest base and adhesive tape.

From the thick wire we make the letter "T". The width of the upper crossbar should correspond to the length of the small base. Thin wire through the holes in the base we fasten it to the bent wire. We apply the resulting design to ourselves and determine the rotation of the needle fastener, cut off the extra length of the leg. And we wrap and close all connections, irregularities with a green ribbon. We wrap the long edges of the wire separately, they will serve as stems in brooches.

The brooch will have 4 buds, one small and two large-sized flowers. We use 3 leaves on the stem and three additional, without wire. For the convenience of assembling the entire composition, we will make several bouquets. First fasten 3 buds together.

Under each bud we have a leaf with a stem.

The next bunch of two flowers, large and small. We place them a little lower than the first.

And in the last bouquet there will be a bud and a large flower. And we fix it even lower on our design. It remains only to glue 3 leaves at your discretion. It is advisable to close ugly places. A curl can be twisted from the thin edge of the wire. Do not glue anything on the wrong side, there will only be a fastener. The brooch is ready.

Getting started on the rim. The first step is to process the iron rim itself. First, we glue the double-sided tape on the outside. If the tape is wider than the right size, just the excess should be cut off. Next, remove the second film and fasten a thin strip of olive leaf, and cut the excess. At the edges of the rim we make an additional winding of suede. And the basis for decorating the rim is ready.

When assembling, we will act similarly to brooches. We will collect everything in bouquets and fix them one by one. And in a free place immediately pre-arrange all the details. We make paired bouquets. Two bouquets of the uppermost, which will be in the middle. Two large flowers and a leaf on the stem. In the second pair we connect a bud, a leaf and a small flower. The third pair of two large flowers with a leaf. The next pair will be two small flowers with a leaf on the stem. And there were bouquets of three buds.

And now all this needs to be fixed on the basis. Determine the middle of the rim. We attach the first two bouquets closer to the center, cut off the excess wire. We glue and additionally use a floral tape, which we wrap completely around the base.

We also try on the following bouquets and fix them below the base. We do not have bouquets very close. We wrap the tape without passes on the inside. The wrong side should be beautiful too.

And so, in turn, we fix all the prepared bouquets. And with the tape we reach the very bottom of the base.

And there were loose leaves that need to be placed also on the rim. Be sure to glue one at a time under the last buds, and we arrange the rest over the entire structure from two sides in places of a not beautiful connection. We straighten the flowers, because we have them on the wire. The bezel is ready.

Good luck to all!
