Not only young children, but also adults, oftenI want to decorate clothes, or create an odd job for home decor. A bright butterfly with iridescent wings is great for decorating curtains, photo frames or belts on a dress. The butterfly created by the hands will cheer up, and if used as a home decor, it will bring happiness to the house. To create a butterfly, prepare the following materials and tools:
The structure of the butterfly rests on four wings,each of which is formed by many layers of satin from ribbons of three colors. The head and edge of the abdomen are separate elements, yet the butterfly is decorated with rhinestones, antennae. Each of these elements is created separately, the upper and lower wings must be symmetrical with each other. The insect wings differ in that the upper pair has a sharp edge, and they are formed according to the type of the acute cannula petal, but the lower pair has a rounded edge, so these details are composed by the type of a rounded petal. To start working, create squares from the tapes. The sides of the parts are determined by the width of the ribbons, that is, from the five-centimeter tape, blanks with a side of 5 cm are made, and from the four-centimeter tape the size of the parts will be 4 by 4 cm. Take the first detail of any color and proceed to form a sharp petal to create the upper wing. Fold the square in the center, bending along the line from corner to corner, that is, diagonally. The next step with the workpiece is to bend it again along the line from the corner that did not bend perpendicularly upwards and then a new triangle with a smaller scale is formed. It is necessary to add two more details with different colorsby this algorithm. As a result, three triangles will turn out in different colors: violet, white and pink, which is slightly smaller in size. All these details are superimposed on each other in the same sequence, but with a small gap - about 1 mm. If you make a large indent, the lower part of the work will be quite uneven and it will be extremely difficult to solder it, and the upper edge will have an incomprehensible appearance. Fold the part in half so that it does not movethe upper corners and with the burner cut off the lower part of the work, with the wing to be welded. In order for the spike line to be flat, on the top of the part, apply a ruler, press it down and burn out the line with pressure. The second lobe is created similarly, but the second bends on each element are made in a different direction. To form a rounded petal, it is necessary to fold the workpieces in half, that is, as a handkerchief, and then superimpose them on each other in the region of the bend. It is necessary to alternate colors, as on the upper wings. Fold the edges of the workpiece to the bottom corner, perform this manipulation on both sides. Then turn the work over and from the backside bend the edges of the diamond to the center. Solder the bottom of the work by turning it in half. You should get such a smooth, rounded petal: Now proceed to assemble the butterfly. First pair soldering round and sharp petals. Be sure to ensure that the upper wings of the fold line were along the outer edge. Now, using a transparent hot glue, connect the upper and lower pairs of wings and press the fingers for about 1 minute. Of small squares of lilac colorcreate one round petal and another square. At the same time, one must take into account that the lines must be bent gently, so that the result is an even work, one layer of matter facilitates manipulation. On the head adhere the antennae, and then from above the place of fixation is decorated with a large rhinestone. Obtain the obtained blanks between pairedwings. On the side where the sharp wings are attached to the rounded petal, it will be the head. Between the lower rounded parts is pasted a small sharp element, it will be the end part of the insect's abdomen. At the center of the satin insect, a string of purple rhinestones is pasted, and they will symbolize the iridescent body of the butterfly. Now it remains to choose the basis for the charminga butterfly created by own hands. It can decorate any accessory. For example, it can be glued to a hair clip or a rim on its side. Perfectly tender butterfly looks at the curtains or curtains. To the curtains, the decor easily fits with needles with a loop. Use the imagination, as the butterfly can sit on the corner of the photo frame, decorate the holiday card, the corner of the calendar, etc.
