Today we offer you to master one of the most interesting techniques for creating a gladiolus made of paper! So, we will prepare everything necessary for work:
- crepe paper fuchsia tone;
- green crepe-paper;
- a ballpoint pen or a soft pencil;
- a piece of wire 25-30 cm in length.
Step 1 First, create large flower petals. For this we need to cut off a strip of 7-8 cm wide from a roll of crepe paper. Divide it into two equal parts. On any segment, draw the contour of the petal with the handle. Then cut out the blanks along the contour. Step 2 The upper petal with the contour will be postponed, and the rest of the petals will be given a realistic shape. . To do this, take the petal for the upper and lowerpart and begin to stretch it to the sides. We perform this stage of work very carefully, so as not to tear the thin piece of the petal. Step 3 We wrap the piece of wire with green crepe paper. The end of the tape must be fixed with glue, otherwise the tape may unwind during operation. Step 4 Now, make a few small undecayed gladiolus buds. We need this piece of crepe paper. Fold the part several times. Center the ribbon once. After folding the tips together and securely fix them with a thread. Step 5 Next, with a piece of green creped paper, we'll do the same manipulations. Step 6 Put the first detail of fuchsia in the middle of the green workpiece. We close the second end of the billet and wrap it with a string so that the buds do not lose their shape. If you can not do such a largeparts, then create a few balls of crepe paper first, and then attach the workpieces twisted to the center. Step 7 We also create one small blank from the green crepe paper. In the future, we will place at the top of the stem. Step 8 When all the unblown buds are ready, proceed to the formation of the main buds. We connect the first two petals in this way, by twisting their base with their fingers. Next, carefully attach three more petals. We should get here such a voluminous bud. Step 9 To each bud preparation we put the correctshape. Inflorescences that will be in the upper part of the stem, make half-open. The lower flowers should be fully opened for this, you need to turn all the petals outward. Step 10 We begin to attach all the inflorescences to the stalk using crepe tape. First we attach the smallest bud. Below we have all the others. After small unbroken buds, we attach large flowers. Step 11 The gladiolus branch is almost ready to only create a few leaves. We cut out their green crepe-paper. Then one by one attach them to the bottom of the pedicel. That's all, the gladiolus of the paper is ready!
