Dandelions – the most that neither is the spring flowers. They warm us unique solar aura even with drawings and photographs. It is interesting that in English dandelion – dandelion, that is a little lion cub-dandy, flaunting its fluffy fur. And of course, kids love them, sincerely and selflessly gathering bouquets of little suns in the emerald grass.
That we should create a sunny spring mood for a baby right now, without waiting for spring?
1. We need yellow paper for two colors (the denser the better), scissors, tweezers, glue, green paper leaves and ruffled strip of paper stems and buds.
2. Cut a sheet of printer paper strip width of 3.5 cm along the entire length of A4 paper, on the basis of – one flower will need two strips, plus 0.3 bars on the bud.
3. Take 3 strips for cutting petals (this is the optimal number of cutting). Strip folded in half lengthwise, cut into petals as finely as possible (0.5 mm), before reaching the bend 2 – 2.5 mm.
4. The next step – the strips must be carefully races together. For this you can use tweezers or fine scissors. Ras connected strips flex along fold line again.
5. Getting to the manufacture of a flower. Take a strip of lighter – it’s middle,. Fine forceps stifle edge of the ribbon and twist it spiral so that the edge went smoothly, did not act in any way nor the other. Beauty flower depends on how tight and tied it exactly you. Edge glue strips.
6. Without removing from tweezers continue – Glue the second strip, petals. Continue to cheat a tight spiral, fix the edge glue, remove carefully with tweezers.
7. To flower was stronger it is better to fix the bottom hot glue. Then attach dandelion shape – the petals gently turn down the maximum, without pressing in the midst. The flower is ready. To create a picture you can make plain some flowers.
8. do leaf of the rectangle, folded in half. Cut out the shape of a symmetrical leaf required length, place it on a flat, thin face (you can take a metal ruler) and squeeze the two sides, forming an accordion. Remove from the line, slightly stretched – leaf ready. For pictures will need leaves of different sizes and colors.
9. buds need 0.3 strips with sliced petals. The spiral curl just like a flower, glue. Cut the strip of paper ruffled 1.5 – 2 cm wide. The edge of her sizing, put on the edge of our bud with spade 5-6 mm wrap paper. The remaining length of the stem is twisted into a bundle. Similarly, we do stems for flowers.
10. Take to compose a dense base – cardboard, or old disk, cover box of chocolates or from any available frame. Prepared elements sticking hot glue (you can “Dragon”, but longer). First we fix the flowers, then fine details.
Of course, this way you can make not only dandelions. It is very interesting to experiment with colors and sizes, used not 2, but 3 or more colors. If you want to get more flowers, be sure to increase in proportion to the width of the strip.
