Delicate bouquet of paper poppiesReal flowers are a good gift at any time and often make our life brighter, and the mood is more joyful, bringing positive emotions into it. However, this does not mean that other types of flowers should be treated with skepticism. After all, living flowers are a beautiful creation of nature itself, worthy of admiration, and artificial ones can actually come to life, being an amazing result of the work of real masters. So, this time we will try to create a good atmosphere and exquisite beauty with our own hands, namely - to make original paper flowers. The process of making artificial flowers will require high-quality crepe paper. It is this type of paper that will provide subtlety, translucency and great similarity with the petals of real flowers. We stop our choice on bright scarlet poppies, symbolizing charm, pleasure, dreaminess and youth. So, let's start the process of manufacturing. For the product you will need:
- paper creped crimson;
- green wire (possibly insulating) or available stems from the same products;
- green florist ribbon; replace it with a possible green adhesive tape;
- stamens from a wire (you can try to wrap yourself a black paper wire or paint it with a black felt pen).
Step one. The petals of our poppy we will cut out of the crepe paper, giving them a droplet shape (the base can be wider than in the photo). The shape and size of the petals will not necessarily be the same. Make five petals, and this will be enough. Step two. To create the bud itself, you need to fasten seven to nine stamens with adhesive tape (similar to those in the photo, try to bend it in half). Step three. The petals must be gathered around the ready-made stamens. To keep them together, without crumbling, fix each of them with a small drop of quick-drying glue. Together with this, we try to give each petal a certain curvature, which will not be particularly difficult, because the crepe paper will easily take the desired shape. Step Four. To the base of the bud made, attach the stem, if there is already ready. If in the presence there was only an ordinary wire, then it should be glued in advance with green tape or crepe paper. Step five. We glue the stalk with the appropriate ribbon and at the same time proceed to the design of the base of the bud itself. Step Six. In the end, we will correct the petals, slightly stretching the paper. As a result, the flower must acquire the shape of a sphere. And now there is a ready scarlet poppy. If there is a desire, you can also decorate the petals on the stem. For a greater degree of similarity with a real live poppy can try to insert pieces of gray crepe paper in the bud between the stamens. Creating such a poppy - the process is very easy, so even the design of a whole bouquet of such flowers will not take you much time.
