That year I did a big one. This year there was no time, so I managed a little nine topiary. How to make it in all the details and step-by-step photos - our master class will tell.
To make a figure for my birthday, I needed:
corrugated board; 2.5 cm wide satin ribbon -about 2 m; small plastic flower pot in tone satin ribbon; 1.5 cm wide rep ribbon tape matching half beads - the length is equal to the girth of the pot plus a margin for the bow; sisal in tone half beads; semi-beads-pearls of two sizes; a wooden skewer or a long stick from ice cream; PVA glue; hot silicone glue (gun); pot filler (I have toilet paper and napkins); simple pencil; scissors; mock or stationery knife; ruler; matches or lighter.
How to make a figure for your birthday with your own hands: a master class
My height is 13 cm. On a piece of corrugated cardboard I drew a nine by hand, giving it the desired shape. She cut out with the help of scissors and a stationery knife along the contour, then cut out another one from the second piece of cardboard. Thanks to the double layer of cardboard, the figure turned out to be more dense and voluminous. The blanks are ready, I turned on the glue gun and pasted the stick-barrel. Then she quickly walked with glue all over nine and glued both cardboard parts together. Started wrapping, necessarily burningfire cut tape. Satin ribbon quickly razlazitsya, so it is important to singe. Wrap nine. Before each turn, I dripped some hot glue on the end of the figure, so the winding will not move anywhere. It took two meters of tape for the winding. I hid the ends under the following turns. I decorated the ribboned figure with pearl semi-beads of two sizes: 1 cm and 8 mm. Beads glued also with hot glue. I took the smallest pot for the number: it is square, the side of the square is only 7.5 cm. I glued a plate to the pot with silicone glue. Stick-stick glued in the center of the pot. Then she poured PVA glue from the spout of the bottle andlaid the space between the barrel and the walls of the pot with toilet paper (below) and above — white table napkins. Then - again generously poured the gelva and pressed it with napkins. So I filled about 2/3 of the pot. After that, the remaining space filledsisal, just rammed it into the pot. His fibrous structure leaves him no chance to fall out of the pot on his own even during active games with festive decor. Things are easy - to decorate the pot. I poured hot glue on the beveled corner of the pot and glued the tip of the rep tape. Then she wrapped it around the pot, measured the necessary amount of tape, cut the tape and singed it, and then glued the second tip. Now - bow. It went 9 cm rep tape. I cut the desired piece, scorched the ends, and then glued the ends end-to-end to the pot, masking the junction of the tape around the pot. Then - a drop of glue on top of the fixed ends of a piece of tape - and pressed the center of the piece with a finger. The result was a bow. This bow is also decorated with a large semi-bead. We hope this master class was detailed enough not to leave questions on how to make a figure for your birthday with your own hands. That's what I got - see the photo.
