There are many ideas for creating products withhands. In the manufacture of postcards you can fantasize unlimitedly and make the most exclusive products in different colors, styles, using a variety of techniques, decorative elements and the most unusual materials. Flower postcard made with own hands withusing quilling techniques, is the best gift to a loved one. Although the concept of "quilling" may be unfamiliar to some, nevertheless in the following work no complicated techniques are used. We can say that the work presented is done with some elements of quilling. In general, the process of implementing a postcard is quite simple. To get started, you need:
- A4 cardboard - blue;
- openwork cotton ribbon;
- fabric tape blue or white in peas;
- Glue, scissors, tweezers, quilling tools;
- rhinestones blue color of small size - 10 pieces;
- one large rhinestone (for a flower);
- Quilling paper - blue, blue, light blue.
Having prepared all the materials, you can start work. From blue A4 cardboard we make the base by bending the sheetin half. Cut 21 cm of white ribbon in peas, attach to the glue to the base, leaving the edge about 4 cm. You can use a blue monophonic tape, polka dots or stripes. Cut off 21 cm of blue cotton tape and attach to the glue next to the ribbon in the peas on the base. A white cotton lace ribbon is also great here. It is important to carefully glue the fabric ribbon,so that she lay flat on the cardboard. To do this, every millimeter of the tissue strip should be pressed with fingers, so that the openwork fabric is leveled and securely fixed on the cardboard surface. From blue paper for a quilling of 40 cm in length, we form a roll. Use for this you can use a quilling tool or a simple toothpick, on which the paper also winds up well. To make the rolls the same, it's best to usea special ruler, inserting the roll into the hole at 24 mm in diameter. If there is no such line-up, it does not matter, you can use your good eye and form the same rolls "by eye." The correct size of the roll is fixed with glue. We give it the shape of a crescent moon. Then bend the resulting part in the shape of a petal. On top, the finished petal is wrapped with a quilling paper of a dark blue color, lubricating the tape with glue for a strong fixation. It turns out a blue detail with a dark blue rim. Such lobes need to make 6 pieces. Then from the same blue quilling paper we perform three rolls and give them the shape as in the photo. Each element is also wrapped with blue quilling paper along the edge, fixed with glue. We begin to fasten details on the basis of a postcard, having greased with glue beforehand. First, we form a flower of six finished parts. From the blue quilling paper with a length of about 10-12 cm, make the part by twisting the edge with a quilling tool. From the strip of quilling paper we make a meandering element, we grease it with glue. We mount to the base. Another similar element is made of blue paperfor quilling and also attach it to the base. The drawing itself can be done differently, supplemented with the same twisted elements depending on your imagination. We take three pieces of quilling paper of different length, about 6.5-8-9.5 cm. On the one hand we attach the strips to each other, and then connect the other edge of the strips, holding them with your fingers, starting to wind on the quilling tool or toothpick, as in the photo. It turns out such a detail. This part is attached to the base of the flower. In the center of the flower we glue a big rhinestone, blue or transparent. The previous three parts are glued with glue and also glue to the basis of the postcard. We take small blue crystals, attach three pieces to the petals of the flower, and the remaining 7 pieces-on the bend of one of the elements. Very gentle holiday card with your own hands is ready!
