A very long time ago, in ancient times, people began to master the art of creating flowers from paper. They decorated housing, presented to each other, and in the middle of the 18th century in European countries paper flowers began to be used to decorate temples. A little later, whole plants appeared for their manufacture.
Flowers adorn our lives, especially pleasing when they live forever. How? If they are out of paper. Such a bouquet is inferior to living, only the lack of aroma. With paper flowers, you can delight loved ones and friends, or simply decorate your home. Make bouquets, make panels or magnificent flower trees with your own hands, because it is so easy! But you need to learn this too, so you need to start with a simple one. For example, from a flower tree.
So how to make a flower tree?
You will need:
• Corrugated paper, the color you would like your flowers to be, and green paper.
• Plastic bottle with a bottom diameter of 10-15 cm
• Soft wire 1.5 m
• Paper A4-1 sheet
First, cut the bottom of the bottle to get a container about 5 cm high.
Make a hole 1 cm in diameter in the center of the container.
Now take a pencil, and using it as a rod, wrap with paper. You got a paper tube. Remove the pencil. We got the future tree trunk.
We take the wire and wrap the trunk in a tight spiral. We fix it.
The most crucial part is making flowers.
Cut a strip 8-10 cm wide and 20-30 centimeters long. Stretch it a little.
Bend the upper left corner, then again ...
And now proceed to the more difficult part ... Take the part that you bent a second time with two fingers in the middle, grab the part with your other hand a little to the right and twist the paper in the form of a candy wrapper, fasten. Now, move the fingers of your left hand onto the fold and hold it while the fingers of your right hand are folding the paper, as described above. So continue on.
Fold the resulting blank in the form of a rose, straighten the petals and secure the base with wire, leaving another 5 cm in stock.
We attach a rose to the end of the barrel made.
We make so many roses to make a ball in the end.
Now we take green paper, grease with glue and wrap the bottom of the roll.
We insert our flower tree into the manufactured base.
You can decorate it all with beads.
Flower tree is done!
