Probably there is no person in the world who does not likesweets. Someone likes chocolate sweets, someone likes a grilling or praline. Therefore, in recent years, more and more popular has become such decorative and applied art as the suite design, from the English "sweet", in translation - "sweet." One of the varieties of this handicraft is the suite floristics - the creation of flower bouquets with hearts made of chocolates. The creation of such handicrafts is inextricably linked with the creation of sweets, and they appeared in the light a very long time. The very first sweets people began to make in those early times, when no one even thought about sugar. The Egyptians used sweet dates as dates and figs, Greeks and Romans honey and barley molasses. In those varieties of sweets, nuts, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds were added. The very term "candy" came into use, oddly enough, from the pharmacists. They cooked candied fruit as a cough remedy. "Confectum" from Latin was translated as "cooked". A form of candy in the form of a small rod, which was customary for us, appeared in the middle of the 17th century. In 1663 sweetness with a nut-filled honey filling - praline was made especially for the French ambassador in Germany. In America, since 1800, the mass use of sugar beet begins. Caramel appears on the light. A favorite of many milk chocolate was born in the late 19 th century. In Europe sugar beet sweets became available, thanks to Napoleon. The Emperor adored sweets, but the supply of sugar from England because of the war were terminated. It was then that the instruction was issued, to find a substitute for the English product. When sweets were a rarity, they were stored in beautiful boxes - bonbonniere (from the French bonbon - candy). These were real works of art, made of precious metals or natural leather. Such bonbonniere were considered an expensive and extravagant gift. But in the 19th century the production of sweets became massive, and storing them in boxes is inconvenient. Then the simple wrappers of paraffin-impregnated paper appear first, and then bright wrappers familiar to us. Thanks to the popular custom of giving sweets for the holidays or even without an occasion, and the floristic suite was born. After all, beautifully decorated candies get much nicer. In this article, we will offer you options for creating sweet bouquets from wildflowers. Bouquet of poppies from sweets In the spring, the fields, covered with the first greenery, decorateare scarlet poppies. In the below master class it is proposed to make these bright and beautiful flowers with sweet candy stuffing. Such a bouquet will be an excellent gift or simply an original and delicious decoration of the house. Materials and tools:
- Sweets (preferably round);
- Corrugated paper is green, red and black;
- Floral wire about 50 cm;
- Artificial leaves;
- Flor tape;
- Scissors and tools for working with wire;
- Hot glue and glue gun.
We start with the fact that we cut the paper intopieces. For one poppy, you will need 4 red rectangles about 5 x 7 cm and 1 black about 5 x 13 cm. The size of the blanks is approximate, since everything will depend on the parameters of the candies you choose. From the red rectangles we cut out the petals(see photo). The upper edges of the fingers stretch quite strongly. They will become wavy. Now, very gently stretch the middle of the petals. They will become convex. Cut one narrow edge of the black workpiece into a fringe about half. These are the future stamens. Now, with your fingers, twist the cut strips into bundles. If you chose sweets with tails of candy wrappers,then they must be glued with a small piece of scotch, so that the candy becomes round. Now take the black workpiece and stretch the middle a little. We wrap it in candy (see photo). Corrugated paper has a high density and can easily hold the candy without additional fixation. We take a piece of floristic wire and doat one end of the loop, bending about 2 cm. We insert this loop into the roll of the black billet and twist the paper around the wire. Stamens can also be twisted. Thread or tap tape should fix the workpiece with candy on the wire. We start to adhere the red petals. Add a drop of glue to the base of the two petals and glue one to the other. The second pair is glued staggered relative to the first two. We wrap the base with petals floras with a ribbon or a strip of green corrugated paper. We continue the winding. Do not forget to paste the sheet. It can be cut from corrugated green or buy ready. It remains to make other poppies for a lush bouquet of wildflowers. You can add chamomile to it. Beautiful bright and sunny flowers will perfectly contrast with red poppies. Chamomile candies Materials and tools will be almost the same as in the past master class:
- Sweets (better round);
- White and green corrugated paper;
- Gold foil (for cores);
- Scotch tape and thin rubber (similar to banking);
- Wooden skewers for shish kebabs;
- The pieces of floristic wire are slightly longer than the skewers;
- Scissors and round nose pliers;
- Fine satin ribbon and corrugated paper for packing a bouquet (if desired).
First you need to make the core of the flower. Chamomile is yellow, so we wrap the candy in gold foil. If the candy wrapper in itself is yellow, you can leave it without an additional wrapper. We cut white paper into strips. Its length should be enough to wrap a candy three times, so the size of the workpiece you determine yourself. The width is also determined by the parameters of the core, but not less than 5 cm. Now you have to get the white candy received. One end is intercepted with tape or rubber, and the second one is bent, as shown in the photo. On each layer we cut out the petals of the daisy. In the process, you can correct their length. We fan the petals. Now take the skewer. This will be the stem of one of the daisies and an additional rod of stiffness for the rest of the bouquet. At one end, you can apply a little glue. From above, the base of the chamomile is wrapped with a strip of green corrugated paper. It remains to make the rest of the camomiles for the bouquet, put them together and put on a "skirt" of corrugated paper. We tie a bow from a green ribbon and the bouquet is ready. Another field flower that will beit is wonderful to look in a bouquet, is a sunflower. The old legend says that the people gave the flowers of the sunflower the gods, so that the bright sunlight did not leave them in the worst weather. Even when the whole sky is covered with clouds, the flowers of the sunflower turn their bright heads behind the sun, which is hidden behind the clouds. It is a flower of warmth, joy and positive. Sunflower of sweets Materials and tools:
- Candy (the ideal option will be triangular "truffles");
- Corrugated paper of a sunny yellow hue;
- Tape tape;
- Skewers or floras wire fillet for stems;
- Polysylk (dark brown) and a floral net (golden);
For those who are engaged in sweet floristryRecently it is necessary to know about such wonderful material as polysilk. It is a thin, lightweight, flexible film that easily wrinkles and takes the desired form. Has a rich glossy sheen. From the polisilka we cut out a small square, with such a calculation that the candy can fit into it. For convenience, you can use a wrapper as a template. Exactly the same piece must be made from a floral net. For each core, one square of both kinds will be needed. Now you need to wrap the candy first in the square of the polysilk, tighten it with a thread, and then into the grid grid. Now we are preparing a strip of yellow corrugated paper. The length of the workpiece should allow wrapping the candy in three layers. The width of the strip is about 8 cm. Now we cut one of the wide sides"Fence". These are the future petals. Cutting height is about 2.5 - 3 cm. Turn around the candy with the workpiece. Try to fold the paper so that the petals are staggered. The edge of the workpiece must be secured with glue. We are wrapping it to create a shape with a thread at the base of the candy. Straighten the petals and sharpen the fingers,like real flowers. Now we put in the base of the flower (it turns out a roll of corrugated paper) a skewer or a piece of floristic wire. We fix the tapes with tape and wrap the entire stem. Instead of a tape, you can use a narrow strip of corrugated paper green paper, pre-lubricated with a glue skewer. Our sunflower is ready, it remains only to make the rest of the flowers for the bouquet. Another beautiful and gentle flower complementinga bouquet of wildflowers will be a cornflower. Heavenly blue small flowers perfectly match with daisies, poppies and sunflowers. Such a bouquet will never leave indifferent neither sweethearts, nor flower lovers. Cornflowers of sweets Materials and tools:
- Candy (round and preferably in a silver wrapper);
- Blue corrugated paper;
- Scissors (conventional and curly);
- Skewers or pieces of wire for the stem;
- Tape tape or a strip of green corrugated paper for decorating the stem.
Strips of corrugated paper with one widewe cut out the sides with figured scissors, or you can take the usual manicure and carefully cut out the denticles. The size of the strips will depend on the size of the candy. But the approximate parameters are 5-6 cm in height and 15-17 cm in width. We cut the strip into three equal parts. On each one, two notches are made in such a way as to make three equal-sized lobes. We cut, beginning with the figured edge. This will be the top of the petals. The corners of each of them are slightly rounded. Finger gently stretch each of them a little to get a concave shape. Now on each petal of affairs small incisions on the center. We fasten the first three petals and tighten the threads tightly to the tail of the candy. Further we fasten other preparations, having them overlapping. Each is wound with threads. Straighten the petals. It remains only to make a stalk with a skewerand teip tapes, as described in the previous master classes, and the cornflower will be ready to join the bouquet of wildflowers. Another lovely flowers are crocuses. Very gentle and spring, they are perfect for a sweet bouquet. Crocuses from sweets Materials and tools:
- Corrugated paper (petals come in different colors, so that the shade of paper is to your taste);
- Wooden or bamboo skewers;
- Sweets (better round);
- Thin scotch tape;
- Tape tape;
- Hot glue and glue gun.
We cut the paper into strips with a width of 3 cm and a length of 12 cm. Since the width of a roll of corrugated paper is usually 50 cm, then we have four blanks from one three-centimeter strip. For one flower will need 3 petals. They are obtained by volume, and the flower is not overloaded and light. We mark five centimeters from one end, and we twist the paper strip in the place of the mark. This is the future tip of the petal. Fold it in the place of twisting. Fingers gently slightly stretch the top of the petal. Now attach with thin tapecandy to skewers. If she has tails from candy wrappers, fasten them so that the candy becomes simply round. With Scotch roll the skewer and candy tail about a couple of centimeters. We begin to fasten the petals. Everyone attach, dropping a drop of glue or attaching a thread. We have them overlapped. Tightly wrap the thread. The extra paper is cut off, as in the photo. Now wrap the tapes with a ribbon flower base and a skewer. If you do not have a tape at your fingertips, you canuse corrugated paper of green color. The width of the strip should be about 1 cm. Simply wrap the skewer and the flower base with a strip. Preliminary applying glue.
