In this article, you should consider a series of New Year's handicrafts made with plain paper. Paper material can be a good addition to your idea if you apply the right techniques. So, for example, Quilling can be a great way to realize and show the features of this material. First job Our first task will be the lesson of creationtoys-magnets on the refrigerator with their own hands. In accordance with the New Year theme and our idea, you can depict absolutely any subject, using the forms and qualities of this material

Initially, we have to make paper forquilling. For especially lazy, the corresponding products can be bought at the needlework store. But, since we decided to invent our own craft on our own, we will try to make a paper with our own hands. To do this, take the appropriate color, as well as the density of the paper. With scissors, and even better - with a clerical knife we cut the paper with the same width of each strip to connect them. Strips are combined in sets with the same width. Several different sets can be prepared with parameters of different length and width of the product. Magnetic base should be bought in the store. To fix the elements on the cardboard we will use PVA glue, but in case you want to choose more resistant glue - the usual version of super glue will do. For a basis it is possible to take yoghurt magnets if you do not want to go to the store. Paper, or cardboard is reduced by soaking our craft in the water. The variant of such a magnet will withstand the craft because of its lightness. But, we advise also to make a lining in the form of white cardboard for the appearance of the product. First of all, we determine the appearance of the pattern and the figures with which we are to work. Of course, we work with the New Year theme. Depending on who will be given such an article, you should select the color range and character. You can also choose the size of the figure and the convexity of the object. You can make a Christmas tree, a snowflake, a Christmas sock or Santa Claus. New Year's snowman We'll try to make a real snowman. Therefore, our set will consist of ribbons of red, black, blue, green and yellow. The shape of the snowman starts from the bottom. For the basis of the form, take the usual snowflake. For this we need to make strips of blue shades in size by 3 millimeters in width and 15 centimeters in length. For the snowflake, we make six faces, which we will do with a special screwdriver or a conventional threaded toothpick. Prepare to be twelve ordinary rolls. Rolls must be dissolved using a stencil. We form six variants of different rolls by a diameter of 1.3 centimeters, and also 6 by a diameter of 1.1 centimeters. It is necessary to squeeze one of the sides for six smaller rolls to form a "drop" shape. Then, we compress the other six rolls, but already on two sides. Thus, for large rolls, we get the shape of the "eye". Then, the eyes should be glued together. It will form a beautiful and interesting flower. After, it is necessary to insert the droplets with the help of a sharp side, using the petals of our product. All this must also be glued together. Glue during the procedure is not to be regretted, but you need to ensure that the remnants do not get out on each side. It is especially important that they do not dry out on the product. This will help keep the work in a neat and neat appearance. The main element is ready! Snowman's head When the body is ready, it's time to work above your head. It will be formed using a simple roll in a round shape. For this it is necessary to take two stripes and glue them together. Get the option of one long strip. It must be screwed into a roll form, then dissolve into a diameter of 2 centimeters. Then, the central part moves upward. You can do this with a regular needle, as well as tweezers (preferably with a fine grip). We fix the center, and then the edge of the product can be fixed with an adhesive base.
