Day of All Lovers in the vastness of our homelandbegan to celebrate relatively recently. But his story, as the legend says, began in ancient Rome in the 3rd century AD. Ruler, the emperor Claudius forbade his warriors to marry, that legionnaires did not seek home to their beloved, but gave all their strength to the conquest of new lands. At that time in the small town of Terni lived the priest Valentine, his kind heart did not allow to remain indifferent, and he secretly crowned all the lovers who came to him. He was canonized, and at the end of the 5th century on February 14, by the decree of Pope Gelasius, was declared the Valentine's Day. This date is still considered the day when lovers can openly express all the warm feelings, even if the object of adoration before that time and did not suspect about it. In this case, wonderful postcards, bouquets of flowers and many other lovely little things please the hearts and bring a good mood to everyone without exception. In this article, we will offer several small master classes to create original and cute gifts for Valentine's Day for girls. Three-dimensional flower heart for a girl by February 14 Such a beautiful heart any guy can easily do with their own hands, no special skills and it does not require, and the result will be impressive. It will take:
- Plastic figurine in the shape of heart. It can also be made from cardboard and attached to the blank. The width of the base and sides is about 4 cm.
- Fabric of two shades of red (can be replaced by a wide satin ribbon).
- Glue (hot) and glue gun.
- Needle and thread in the tone of the fabric.
- A piece of scarlet satin ribbon for fastening.
If you have a plastic or foam basefor the time, cast it aside. If you choose a cardboard, you should glue the edge to it and let it dry. At this time we are going to create flowers. For each volume rose, we need a strip of fabric 40 cm long and 7 cm wide. Each strip is folded in half along. In order for it to stay in this state better, it can be ironed. Now you need to flash the strip, as shownon the picture. We choose a conventional primer seam, so that in the future this strip of tissue can be slightly (about 1/3) to be added. At the same time, the thread is not cut off. We begin to twist the future flower, as shown in the photo. It turns out that something like roll, in which the lower part (the one that is sewn thread) is slightly more tightly wound than the upper one. The bottom of the rose is stitched so that the flower does not untwist. Similarly, create all the other flowers. It will take approximately 80 pieces, depending on how tightly you will twist the roses. To our preform in the form of heart on the back of the top we glue two pieces of satin ribbon. The edges that you cut off must be fused over the fire, so that they do not become fluffy and not disheveled. Now we begin to decorate our heart with flowers. It is very convenient to fix roses on hot glue. If you have a foam base, you can use English pins for fastening. So it turns out even more original, it is only necessary to choose the appropriate colors for the heads at the pins. The heart must be pasted from all sides. When the glue dries up completely, do not forgettie a bow of ribbons and the heart is ready. Probably, there is not a single girl, a girl, a woman and even a grandmother who does not like jewelry. And if a sweet thing your beloved does with your own hands, then such a gift is doubly pleasant. We suggest to make for the beloved girl a bright suspension that can be attached to the phone, in the form of a key fob on keys or used as a pendant. Heart-key chain made of beads and beads It will take:
- Thin wire of pink color 0.3 or 0.2 mm.
- The wire is dark pink in transparent braid 2-3 mm.
- Decorative twisted cord.
- Pearls of plastic or glass of different diameters, all shades of pink.
- Bicones, golden color cutting, large beads.
- Jewelry pins (pins with a loop on the end) 1 piece.
- Connecting rings 2 pieces.
- Thin ribbon 0.5-0.7 mm.
- Tools for working with wire (nippers, pliers, round pliers).
A thick wire should be taken in about threetimes more length than you plan to make the extension of the heart, because it must be folded twice and twisted as in the photo. It is necessary to twist as closely as possible so that the turns are small. We bend the wire so that the heart turns out (see photo) and fixes the ends of the wire so that the structure does not untwist. Now take a long piece of thin wire andfix it anywhere on the heart of the frame. At the free end, we put on a different size and color of the bead and fix it on the other side of the frame (see photo). The line does not have to divide the heart in the middle. Wire fasten a couple of turns. Again on the free end we string beads, beads and chopping and fix on the opposite side of the heart. Thus it is necessary to fill the entire inner area of the craft. Advice! When you have several lines ready, before you do one more, it's worth trying on a low with beads. Then we need to put on such an amount, which will reach the point of intersection with the first line, now we make a coil of wire around it and again the bottom of the bead. The turns must be made at each intersection of the wires. The end of the wire must be hidden in the very last row of beads. The next stage will be the formation of the loop, forwhich we will attach the pendant to the lace. We take a jewelry pin and pass a sharp end through the heart at the top. The loop should be on the opposite side of the heart. We make a loop from the pin and fix the free end of the pin in the loop (see photo). Usually, jewelry pins are made of soft metals, but not to injure the fingers, it is better to use pliers. In the resulting loop we pass the connecting ring, and then into it one more. It remains only to fix the lace in the ring and the keychain "Heart" is ready to please your Valentine.
