Each of us is preparing for the New Year holiday andChristmas in your own ways. Someone prefers to cook, for someone it is nice to arrange an apartment, others like to run about shopping and skimp on the eve of holidays. But, there is also such a special kind of people who like to create. And for this, these people are ready to use a variety of methods. We live in the modern world and therefore, we try to learn something new every day. Quilling - one of these techniques of needlework, which is worth learning for yourself.
The shape of the snowflake for quilling - a new form and a master class for snowflakes
There are enough reasons for this: First of all, it's an excellent tool, thanks to which you can create unique crafts. With the help of such crafts, it is possible to perform various works that can become presents or decorations for the home. An example is a snowflake. Yes, the usual snowflake, which each of us did in our small years, acquires a new meaning of existence thanks to quilling - the technique of working on strips of paper that can deform. Twisting strips of paper, we can recreate the most diverse, uncomplicated forms, which in the future will only decorate or improve the items that we use. Materials for decorating with snowflakes I want to decorate the tree with some new, specialway? Perhaps you need some kind of addition to the usual card application? No problem! The quilling technique is famous for its ability to deform in any channel and, therefore, can be used in a variety of subjects. And, like a snowflake, the quilling technique is unique in its kind. We can recreate a variety of forms of snow patterns using paper tapes. This master class will tell us about one of these creations, with which we can improve the appearance of any object, whether it is a picture, postcard or decoration. For any type of needlework more often than not,special means and opportunities. We will work with a special tool for quilling, which can be replaced with a toothpick. For the formation of our paper patterns, we need a special paper that has all the necessary properties:
- Prepare the strips 5-6 millimeters wide
- To create beams of snowflakes, it will take 7.5 centimeters of tape in the amount of 8 pieces
- To create a central spiral - 15 centimeters tape in the amount of 1 piece
- For the shape of the spiral we take 15 centimeters in the number of 4 pieces
- For the shape of the drop, we take 7.5 centimeters in the number of 4 pieces
- Also, for the shape of the eye, 5 cm tape in the number of 4 pieces
For the preparation of our beautiful and completework is essential. There is such a snowflake in this variation. It is an element of the spiral, which will be considered the main one in the work. The procedure is simple: It is necessary to push one of the ends of the paper tape into a special slot of your tool, and then tighten the paper element into a spiral. After, it is necessary to remove the hand and get a variant of the basic form of quilling in the form of a free spiral. Then, at the end of the spiral is placed the glue base, which is fixed and the spiral is completed. Thus, we form a spiral in length from the tapeon 15 centimeters, in order to prepare the center of the future snowflake. The form of a drop, eye and heart, a ray It is necessary to clamp two fingers so that between the fingers on one of the edges of the spiral the angle of an acute appearance is obtained. Thus, we form four variants of the drop in the same way for the desired length. The same method recreates the shape of the eye, only the clamping is done from two sides. Thus, you need to form four more elements of the eyes. Also, you need to make hearts. To do this, you need to take a strip and after, fold it twice. Then, each half must be rolled into a spiral shape, we get a variant of the heart. To make the snow rays, it is necessary to takestrip and make a spiral for two or three turns. In the same way, form the other end of the spiral. Then, leave the length between the strips by three centimeters. All the details for the formation of the future snowflake - we have! How to make a snowflake-quilling? To begin with, we need to prepare our kit, which will consist of one spiral, four eyes and drops, a heart, will also need eight rays. The rays are glued in pairs in such a way that the spirals peek out on the outside. Then, we should start assembling our snowvariation of the pattern. It is necessary to take a spiral of the middle of a snowflake and to glue to it the rays of a snowflake in the number of four pieces. All of them are put on a right angle. Then, the contact of the spirals must be made with the help of the heart. Afterwards, unfold the heart with neat actions, so that the rays can be attached to its middle. Then, we form a droplet, to which in the middle it is necessary to form a heart. Further, it is necessary to wrap both spirals of the heart on the inner part and then, glue them in the sides under the drops. Then, make similar for each of the rays steps. In the same way, fix the details of the eyes on each of the ends of the rays. So our version of the snowflake is ready!
