This master class and descriptions will show how to make a postcard with swans in quilling technique.
In order to carry out this work,use: 1. Blue cardboard. 2. The base (10.5x21 cm of pink hue), which is designed to create a postcard. 3. Special paper for crafting quilling, colors such as pink, black, white and orange. 4. Special double-sided adhesive tape. 5. Quilling tool (or toothpick), scissors, tweezers, glue, scallop tool. First, we will prepare the basis for our product. Take the blue cardboard, cut the rectangle 15x10 cm, then attach it to the foamed tape on the surface of the pink base in the middle. Then we proceed to the formation of details for swans. First of all, we need to use a special tool called "scallop" and white paper for quilling. We begin to form the swan itself, fixing the first largest strip in the center of the "scallop," then each subsequent loop is performed one step less. During the execution, we permanently fix the paper from the bottom to the glue. These steps should leave 7 pieces on both sides of the central strip. If you get less, you can leave it that way, but in this case the swan will not turn out so splendidly. We form two such elements. Now take the paper for quilling white length 40cm and form the round elements. Two will serve as the basis for the trunks of the swans, and two for the neck and head. We perform a large roll, after it is blown to the desired value, we form the element as in the picture. To fulfill the neck and head - we expand the same rolls as much as possible, and form a flat element, it will go into the bend and head of the bird. Next, we need to take quilling paperorange, its length should be 5 cm. We make a small roll and slightly dissolve it, we make the beak of a swan. Now we use the paper for quilling black, the din is 4 cm, and we form the basis for the beak as in the photo. Each of these elements we need 2 pieces. Now we form hearts from pink paper for quilling, from which we make three rolls in the usual way, giving each shape a heart. Next, we form swans at our work. On the glue on the blue background from below, we attach the bases of the trunks of the swans, then on the adhesive tape a foamed (1x1 cm) glue trunk (like wings), then we attach neck and head. Glue the beak, which is formed from black and orange parts. In the end, we attach one heart from above, and one on the swans themselves. Romantic, smart postcard "Swans" is ready!
