To create a fashion accessory, prepare
Satin flowers to decorate the bezel haveunusual shape, they are not flat, like most products in Kansas technique, but domed. For these flowers, large, inverted petals are needed, which are created from satin blanks of square shape and have a size of 5 by 5 cm. For each flower, five elements are necessary, and three inflorescences are involved in the composition, so prepare 15 satin squares in white. Each square must be turned into an elegant petal with a curved part in the center. To do this, fold the square in half into a triangle, folding it from one corner to the other. The next step is to minimize the partin half, turning it into a triangle of four layers. It is necessary to correctly mark the middle, the displacement to one or another edge, will not allow to eventually create a beautiful petal, since the edges do not weld together. The last inflection passes from the center of the longedge to the opposite right angle and cut the element in half. When you bend the part along this line, a beautiful white petal with a pointed shape is formed. The lower part of the element must be burnedincinerator or soldering iron. To do this, warm up the instrument, place the part on the side face, press the satin layers with a metal ruler and draw a line that connects the base of the petal and the center of the edge part of the element. Spread the petal and bend its central part to form a hill. To give a more accurate look, it is necessary to slightly light the base of the petal in a straightened form, then it will be easier to fix the details next to each other. Create five identical petals, and proceedto their gluing. Cling elements one to the other at the bottom, fixed with a hotmelt. First glue the second petal to the first, then the third to the second, the fourth to the third and the fifth to the petal number four. Extreme parts are too early to glue together. The center will need to paste the stamens of whitecolors. Select several threads with grains, bend them in half, so that all round parts look in one direction. Then, apply glue to the base of the flower at the point of fixing the petals and press the stamens. Next, you need to apply glue on the edge of the first lobe and fix to it the other edge of the last element. It turned out an original white flower of unusual shape, very similar to a snowdrop. To decorate the rim, you need to create three such inflorescences. Coda flowers are ready to start creatingbases under a bouquet. It will be made of long tubular petals of white color. For such petals, take a thin ribbon and cut it into 12 cm cuts. Each detail is bent across the center, so that its corners rest on one another. The satin side must look outward. Press the ruler atlas so that a line is formed from the upper left corner to the opposite corner along an oblique line. But do not move the ruler closely to the bottom corner, retreat upwards about half a centimeter and along this line draw a hot burner so that the layers of fabric are soldered. The extra triangle, which remains, will not be needed later. The resulting element should be turned through the gap, which remained in the gap from the lower corner and the place of soldering the fabric. The result is a beautiful tubular petal. Take the oblong base from the atlas (the size of the oval is about 3 cm). On it, glue the tubular elements so that they almost symmetrically diverged in different directions. Now we start to work with lace. We cut it according to the drawing into elements with protruding parts. Each such beautiful detail is glued to the base in a convenient place between the tubular petals, a magnificent component for the entire decoration should be obtained. Three flowers must be glued together ina single composition. But the flowers from the white atlas merge with each other and the beauty of each inflorescence is lost, so the transitions of one and the other flower should be highlighted with an accent, for example, a lace element. Therefore, in places where flowers join each other, they insert the diving parts of the lacework lace. A branch of three snow-white flowers is gluedto the middle of the main part with tubular details. When fixing the colors, push them a little to make all the parts stick together. The resulting decoration should be attached to the side of the rim or it can be decorated with an automatic hairpin, which has an oblong oval top. The flower is applied to the rim on the head "on dry", that is, without the use of glue, and only when you decide on its exact location, you need to apply glue on the back of the base and attach to the rim. A great accessory in white color is ready. Each flower was created by own hands, therefore the rim turned out not only beautiful, but also unique, wear it with pleasure.
