Every year more and more popularity is gainedbeautiful and original handicrafts. Masters hand made of the most common materials at hand create amazing things. There are a lot of handicrafts, and one of the most delicious floristic trends - sweat design (sweet in English means sweet) is gaining momentum and is gaining more fans all over the world. Stylish and original crafts, combining beautiful flowers with candy, will become a wonderful decorative element or a wonderful gift. The history of this trend in needlework is inextricably linked with the origin of the sweets themselves, as well as their beautiful design and packaging. The first sweet delicacies were born in ancient Egypt. Sahara then did not know, so sweets made from fruits and honey: figs, dates and nuts mixed with flour and herbs. In ancient Greece and Rome for the basis used molasses from barley, made progenitors of modern sweets with honey, poppy, nuts, sprinkled with sesame seeds. The name "candy" came from the Latin "confecyus", which translates as "manufactured". A surprising fact, but the word "candy" was made everyday by the pharmacists of that time. They prepared various bitter medicines and tried to disguise the taste with molasses or candied fruit. At the end of the 17th century candy appeared in the familiar form of a small bar for the first time. In 1663 in Germany for the ambassador of France, confectioners created a praline - soft candy with a filling of nuts and honey. These sweets are still one of the most popular in Europe. In America, since the 1800s, sugar beet is actively used, confectioners make caramel from it. By the middle of the 19th century, the first chocolates appeared in England, and in 1876, products from milk chocolate joined the usual tiles thanks to Daniel Pen. In Russia, apples and pears cooked in honey served as candies. The noble noblemen also enjoyed raspberries in the sugar glaze. But such delicacies were available only to the richest, because sugar was very expensive. This situation changed during the war with Napoleon. England no longer made deliveries to a hostile country, and the emperor, adoring the sweet, gave the order - to find what can be replaced by an inaccessible English commodity. So the sugar came out of special sugar beet. Now sweets were made not only from sugar beet, confectioners used molasses for soft toffee. Sugar beet has perfectly taken root in Russia and the preparation of sweets has become ubiquitous. Since the end of the 16th century and until the mass production of sweets from cheaper sugar, they were stored and sold in a beautiful box - bonbonniere. These packages were themselves an art, they were made of leather, silver or gold. The candies there were placed quite a bit, but along with the beautiful packaging, it was a chic and original gift of that time. Now, when sweet production has acquired industrial scale, it required a completely different packaging. All familiar candy wrappers were born in the middle of the 19th century. Thomas Edison suggested using paper soaked in paraffin. Sweets in such a package did not stick together in one unappetizing lump even on hot summer days. First on such paper printed the name of the manufacturer's company, and then came the turn of bright and beautiful pictures. Now a bright candy wrapper is difficult to surprise. Creative and talented needlewomen came up with an excellent option - beautiful flowers with hearts made of chocolates. Such a bouquet will certainly please both the original kind and tasty content. In the suite design, corrugated paper is very popular. It is from this that very beautiful and realistic looking flowers are obtained, the base and core of which is the sweet. This kind of ornamental paper appeared relatively recently. If ordinary paper exists from 105 AD, then the corrugated version only from the 50s of the 19th century. The first mention of it is found in 1856. Gofra is used as a lining for hats from British subjects. Now a rather large amount of such a burned paper is produced of a wide variety of colors and shades, which is used with pleasure by both florists and other needlewomen. In this article, we suggest making the finest flowers from corrugated paper with a sweet candy heart - roses. A bouquet of roses in the suite design will be an excellent gift. Such flowers can be packed like an ordinary bouquet or folded into a basket, and it can be done by step-by-step photos and a detailed description of the work.
Bouquet of coral roses in a basket
Materials and tools:
- Corrugation for petals and leaves;
- Floral wire 1 mm;
- Floral tape or tape;
- Wicker basket;
- Organza of green color;
- Double-sided tape;
- Glue gun;
- Tools for working with wire (pliers, cutters).
To begin with, you need to prepare awe will add our roses. From the foam it is necessary to cut the workpiece, which fits tightly in the basket. The height of the foam should not be greater than the sides of the basket. The workpiece is glued to the bottom. We are going to create roses. Of the corrugated paper intended for petals, it is necessary to cut out two rectangular pieces: one is wider, the second is narrower. Now, in a smaller piece, round one of the narrow sides, and from the larger one cut out three narrow petals, leaving the common base (see photo). A separate petal from a smaller piece is stretched along the upper edge. Gently with fingers stretch the large workpiece in the middle and with the help of a toothpick it is necessary to turn the edges of the three petals outwards (see photo). Take the candy and wrap around one petal. Below do the turn of the tape tape and thus fix the candy inside. Now wrap the workpiece in three lobes with a common base and again make a turn with a tape to fix it. The next stage of the work will be sepals. To do this, cut off a narrow rectangle of green paper. Now cut out the sharp long leaves, leaving the bottom whole. We wrap the green workpiece with a rose and again turn the tape. The base of the flower is cut obliquely from two sides, the wire is covered with hot glue and inserted into the rose. Now take a thin ribbon from the corrugated green, glue the surface of the wire and the base of the flower and wrap this strip. Now you need to make decorative elementsfrom organza, they will mask the spaces between the roses in the basket. The fabric should be cut into squares with a size slightly larger than the flowers. On one of the ends of the toothpick, wrap the double-sided adhesive tape. Now the square of the organza is folded diagonally, folded down. On the middle we put a toothpick with an adhesive tape and turn off beautifully a fabric 2 - 3 times. With the help of a stapler we fix the position of the matter and the decor element is ready. Now we start decorating the basket. Wire the roses in the roses to the desired length. We stick roses in polystyrene, and decorate the intervals using elements with organza. Dark coral roses In this master class, we show how to make one rose. You can collect the bouquet yourself from the number of colors you choose yourself. Materials and tools:
- Delicious and favorite sweets;
- Wooden skewers for shish kebab;
- Corrugated paper is green and tinted, chosen for rose petals;
- Glue gun or glue;
The first stage - fastening of sweets. They need to be attached to skewers with the help of an adhesive tape. From the number of blanks will eventually depend on the splendor of your bouquet. Now take the paper for the petals. Cut out the blanks for about 10 petals for each flower. Direction of strips along the corrugation. This is a mandatory condition, because in the future we will need to expand each petal. Their size will depend on the size of the selected sweets. Cut out the billets rectangular and one of the narrow sides rounded, like a real petal. You can even take a real pink petal as a pattern. Now take the rounded edge and gently stretch it with your fingers, making the edge wavy. Cut out the petals of two to three sizes. In order to make the middle of the flower, you need a rectangular piece of paper. From there must be more than candy in length. Approximately 18 x 10 cm. Now with fingers carefully stretch it in the middle. It turns out such a convex billet. Turning her candy and fixing the endscotch tape on a skewer. Now we begin to fasten the petals in the same order as the real rose - a little lapped. When you attach all the blanks, you will need to slightly bend the petals so that the effect of the opened flower is obtained. Even if the candy heart is a little peeking. Now you need to glue the bottom of the flower and the skewer. We wrap them with a strip of green paper and the rose is ready. Pink rose from corrugated paper with sweet candy heart Materials and tools:
- Corrugated paper;
- Threads in the tone of paper;
From paper you need to cut 4 identicala rectangle and one slightly larger. From the first rectangle we cut out 2 petals and round one narrow side. The three remaining rectangles (two smaller and one larger) are stacked in four and begin to cut out the petals, rounding one side. Until the end is not cut. We will get 4 lobes in one piece with a common base. Now gently stretch in the middlepetals. They turn out to be convex, well, or concave (on the reverse side). Now take the candy and wrap it in the first two petals, which we cut out separately. Put the candy in the notch of the middle of the petal. At the bottom, you need to leave enough paper to hold it comfortably. Gradually we wrap candy with billets. The lobes are overlapped. When all the petals take their place firmlywrap the leg of the paper with threads for fixation. With the help of a toothpick, slightly twist the edges of the outer petals to make our rose more open. Now you can attach such roses to the stems and make a bouquet, or a beautiful basket. The English rose Materials and tools:
- Corrugated paper (two colors for petals and for sepals);
- Thin scotch tape;
- Floral wire;
- Glue gun.
First, we cut the blanks of the petals. Length / width cm = 2 pieces 7/5 (the very first, directly in them we will wrap a candy), 12 pieces 7/3, 5 pieces 7/4. One of the narrow sides should be rounded. This is the top of the petals. The first two petals stretch neatlyfingers in the middle, without affecting the top and bottom. The next 12 pieces stretch both in the middle and slightly above. The last five petals will be external. They use a toothpick to twist the upper edge, slightly touching the sides (see photo). Now stretch the fingers of the middle of the petals. We take a piece of wire and glue it to oneend of the candy with scotch tape. Now take our first two petals and wrap them in candy. First one, glue with hot glue, and then the second so that the edges of the first petal were closed by the middle of the second. Now we glue the next 12 lobes in a lapped and staggered manner. They should be located slightly above the first petals. The first layer will be of three lobes, and the next two out of four. Now, from the green paper, we cut out a piece of five sepals on a common base. We each twist each middle finger a little, and twist the tips back to make them thinner. It remains to paste the sepals to the base of the rose and wrap the wire with a strip of green corrugation, pre-lubricated with glue.
