New Year's holidays are a time of celebration andmagic in every home of any family. Therefore, I want to recreate a special atmosphere and think about the inherent New Year's fairy tale with elements of Christmas decorative elements. With the help of special lessons, it is always possible to bring to life the most vivid and interesting elements of beautiful decorative tricks with the help of which your house will become a little brighter, atmospheric and more beautiful for other people, and also for you. Create such decorative elements yourself is nice for two reasons. The first is creating the necessary appearance for your home. The second is New Year's mood, which appears due to work on the magic elements of the apartment. In this article, we will try to consider popular options for decorating an apartment for the new year and tell you how you can make such decorations yourself. New Year's snowflake made of paper, perhaps, is one of the most popular themes for the New Year's decor. Most of the matinees of our country do not pass without the process of creating such snowflakes. They can be sewn using not only paper, but also supplementing with various objects. It is enough to use PVA glue, scissors and other elements, and then cut the paper on a special contour and get an absolutely perfect element in order to complement your house with a New Year and Christmas atmosphere. So, to create a beautiful and interesting application of the New Year's snowflake, we will need:
- Quilling paper (Since simple paper is very fragile, quilling has a significant advantage in terms of density)
- Measurement ruler
- Cutting scissors
- Quilling paper cutter
- Glue type "PVA"
To implement the snowflake in the form of quilling, we need to take some steps.
Preparation of a toothpick
First of all, we must use scissorscut off all tips of the point at the toothpick. Then, using a cutter, on one side of the toothpick we make a special incision, which will have a depth of one centimeter. This tool will be in our case, the main one.
Making Quilling Paper
Next, prepare the paper for work. The size of the standard "Quilling" strip has dimensions of 3 mm wide and 27 mm long. In this case, the length here is not an important component of the measurements, it can be equal to the length of the leaf, and the notion of width, respectively, must be observed. Then, we cut the paper with scissors in the type of strips with our width and length.
Working on a paper form
After this action is taken, we work withspirals. In quilling, this element is considered basic. For this it is necessary to take a strip of our paper and insert it into the edge of the toothpick, which was prepared earlier. After that, we twist the paper into a tight spiral. It is very important in this case to twist the toothpick, and not the paper part. At the same time, with action, you should not hurry. The spiral should have smooth and neat shapes. Then, with careful actions, the spiral is removed from the toothpick element and placed on the table. It is necessary for her to unroll her form a little.
Using our paper, which we have previouslyprocessed in the last step, drip glue PVA on the tip of the paper in the form of a droplet. The number of spirals is completely matched to your appearance. The more spiralek - the more sophisticated will work. In this application, 57 such spirals are used.
Droplets and eyes
In addition, to make the snowflake morevarious, it can be supplemented with various forms of paper, not just round spirals. For this you can use the technique of delicate "drop" or the technique of openwork "eye". For this, it is necessary to take the spiral on one side and press it with the thumb and index finger. If you take a spiral from both sides, you get an element of the eye, with one - a droplet. More details can be seen in the photo.
After we have all the necessaryelements in order to make a snowflake, it is necessary to fold them into the patterned part, and also glue them with glue droplets. Everything, our work is finished. It remains only to make a variety of variations of such snowflakes and with the help of small strings or other elements to hang in the house. It will turn out very beautifully and festively! Such work seems rather banal, but thanks to the use of quilling, this work will be very high-quality and beautiful, and most importantly - look absolutely different from the usual snowflake made with paper!
