Often, parents can not find a hobby,which would interest their child. To solve this problem, you can recommend a great option - the manufacture of hand-made articles from cocktail tubes. Our small master class will help you quickly and easily master this case. Vase with a flower To make such a vase you do not need much time and work. The main thing is guided by the following rules. 1. To impart stability to the vase, as its base, cut in half and bundled with elastic bands. The base is adhered to a regular disposable plate. 2. As a decoration for a vase used bows or some other decor, such as a flower. 3. The flower is made of the same tubes. We cut them into pieces. Small inflorescences, which make up a large flower, are made from cutlets cut into scraps. We connect several tubes using the "one-on-one" method and attach the resulting inflorescence to a ball of plasticine. Now it remains only to put the flower in our vase and the product is ready! A framework for photography At the heart of such a frameworklies a cardboard blank. Its manufacturing is elementary. 1. Cut the tubes into equal segments and measure the dimensions of the corners of the frame. You need to cut out several separate elements. Each element should be equal to the length of the corners. 2. Using glue, glue the elements to the cardboard base 3. It remains to attach the photo to the back of the frame and voila - the photo frame is ready! Bright decorations To the small women of fashion, for certain,like the original, colorful beads, the manufacture of which spends a minimum of time and effort. 1. Cut the tubes into pieces of different lengths. For symmetrical beads, the same elements are used. 2. Put the pieces of tubules on the line. Be sure to alternate the tubes with beads, in order to get a more elegant product. 3. The more colorful and diverse the tubules are, the more original the beads will be. Geometric figures Among other things, using cocktailyou can teach the child the basics of geometry. With the help of simple crafts, the kid will quickly remember the names of geometric figures and entertain his time. The production of such figures is not difficult - just tubes and glue. This assembly is limited only by your imagination. You can collect both simple figures, such as a triangle, and such complex variants as an octahedron and an icosahedron. Samples of the assembly of geometric shapes are shown in the photo.
