Bouquets of chocolates on 8 March
Bouquet of fantasy flowers Created with their own hands, flowers from corrugated paper and sweets as a core will melt any woman's heart. It will take:
- Corrugated paper (the color will depend only on what color the woman prefers) in this master class is brightly lilac.
- Floral wire is green.
- Wooden skewers or chopsticks for Chinese food.
- Floral green ribbon.
- Thin scotch.
- Narrow and wide ribbons, combined in color with paper. In this master class - pink. Suitable are those that serve to package gifts.
- A ready-made bow for decorating a bouquet.
- Artificial greens (sold in floristic shops).
- Paper for packing a bouquet. In this master class - transparent pink.
- Tools for working with wire (nippers, pliers).
- Sweets (the most favorite). The shape of the truffles is best.
We cut the wire into segments of about 25-30 cm inlength. At the end, make a small loop and bend it at an angle of 90 degrees to the rest of the segment. These are the future stems of flowers. While we put them aside. Now let's deal with the buds. To do this, cut the corrugated paper into pieces of 18x12 cm. From each of the rectangles, cut approximately ¼ (see photo). Put a quarter on top of the main piecepaper. As shown in the photo. We spread the candy from the top. In order to keep the stem from the wire more firmly, you can stick it with a small piece of scotch to the candy. Using the loop as a base. Now wrap the roll paper with a candy inside and carefully twist the corrugation on the wire stalk. That's what happened. Take the green floral tape and fix itpaper on the wire (see photo). A small piece of thin ribbon (about 0.5 cm in width) we tie the flowers a little higher, where the candy ends, and the wrapper begins. The upper part of the corrugated paper is opened andslightly stretch, forming petals. The edges of the ribbon can be slightly twisted. To do this, you just need to force them firmly at the base to the sharp edge of the scissors and hold until the end, pulling. We need 7 such flowers for a bouquet. When all the flowers are ready, we begin to form a bouquet. As a basis, you can use long wooden skewers, which are used in cooking or sticks from Chinese food. Floral green tape tied flowers in a checkerboard pattern, going down to such a stick. Add artificial stems. Floral tape should be wrapped around the whole wand. When the flowers take their places, we decorate the bouquet with beautiful paper, ribbons and a bow. Bouquet of orchids with chrysanthemums Some of the most beautiful flowers are orchids. The Maori of New Zealand have a beautiful legend about them. In those distant times, when the sun admired the beauty of the earth every day, the world was inhabited only by spirits. Once the clouds covered the sun with a view of the earthly beauties, and it pierced the beam with its beam. It was raining, and a beautiful rainbow shone, which turned out to be so big and incredible that all the spirits flew and sat down on it. Unable to withstand their weight, the rainbow split into many small fragments, and where they touched the ground, rose the most beautiful flowers - orchids. In order to create these fragments of the rainbow from the legend, you will need:
- Corrugated paper beige, light green (salad), dark green, light lilac and dark lilac flowers.
- Polisilk is a golden color.
- Pencil with straight, not faceted sides.
- Sweets are rectangular and small round in shape.
- Hot glue and glue gun.
- A small box in which our flowers will be.
- A thin brush and a watercolor paint of violet color.
- Tapes of different thickness.
- Tools for working with wire (round-nosed pliers, cutters, etc.).
- Elements for the decoration of the box (sisal, tinsel, sequins, beads, etc.).
- Styrofoam or penoplex (you can also use a floral sponge) to fix the flowers in the box.
First, we prepare the wire segments forcolors. At one end of each segment, it is necessary to form a loop. It will take 5 segments for orchids approximately 17 cm in length, for buds of orchids 2 segments of 20 cm and 4 segments of 5 cm each. For chrysanthemums, you need to make 10 segments approximately 17 cm in length. Let's start with orchid flowers. For wire lengths of 17 cm, we attach rectangular candies to the end, which is folded with a loop. Do this with a thread or a thin tape, as hot glue can damage the candy wrapper. We just put the wire loop between the layers of the wrapper and tighten it tightly with threads. When all the preforms of the cores are ready, we willpetals. For internal petals you will need corrugated paper of beige color. It is necessary to cut rectangles 5x7 cm. One of the narrow sides with the help of scissors is formed, as shown in the photo. In order to represent the points on the petal,we use a thin brush and a watercolor paint of violet color. Operate as neatly as possible, too large stains of paint can make the paper too moist and fragile. The lateral long sides are cut slightly to make a petal, as in the photo. To give the desired shape, it is necessary to stretch the petal slightly and bend the painted edges. For this purpose, an ordinary pencil with smooth sides will do. Then with your fingers, gently stretch the middle of the petal so that it takes a cylindrical shape and easily wraps the candy. That's what should happen. Strongly thread the petal in the wire stem. The following petals are cut from salad color paper. The shape is clearly visible in the photo. Blanks are obtained from rectangles 5x6 cm. for each flower you need 2 such rectangles. Similarly to the first, bend and slightly stretch the petals, so that they have a convex shape. Using hot glue we attach on both sides of the core, as in the photo. Now we cut out the last, narrowest petals of an orchid. You will need 3 pieces for each flower. Dimensions of rectangles for cutting such blanks are approximately 4х8 cm. Carefully watch how thegrooves of the corrugation. See more often in the photo. In order not to make a mistake. The last three lobes are attached with the help of a thermo-gun in a staggered manner with respect to the two previous petals. One sharp long petal is opposite to the other two. That's what should happen. Ribbons, which are chosen for decoration, cut into parts of approximately 20 cm each. Fold in half and fix at the base of the flower with hot glue. So do the rest of the orchid flowers. For buds we need small round candies. We fasten them with threads to pieces of wire with eyelets in the same way as flowers. Now every bud should be wrapped darkgreen corrugated paper. Each three buds are combined into one twig and the entire surface is also wound with thin ribbons of corrugated paper. Do not forget to apply a droplet of glue for fixation. Chrysanthemum hearts are also made from smallround candies. We attach them to pieces of wire, as well as before the buds of orchids. But from the top instead of corrugated paper there will be a golden polysilk. This thin and elastic material is sold in floristic shops. From it we cut out small squares and wrap them around candies. We fix it on the wire with threads. Cut off the edges of the cutter to get a smooth and short edge. From paper light purple, cut out a strip of 7x25 cm. Fold it in half along and cut the edge with a fringe fold. The thinner the stripes, the fuzzy it will be chrysanthemum. Now you can fold twice as wide. We wrap the candy in a spiral with the resulting blank so that each next turn is slightly higher than the previous one. We fix everything with threads. When all the flowers are ready, you can proceeddecoration of the box. It is pasted with dark lilac paper. Over the corrugation we glue sisal fibers, beads, beads, ribbons or any other decor to your liking. At the bottom of the box, we glue foam plastic or a floral sponge. Now it remains only to fix orchids and chrysanthemums in a box. You can decorate with bows or simply pieces of ribbon at will.
