It would seem that until recently summer ended, and winteris already around the corner. With the arrival of cold snap people begin to overcome the thoughts of a snowy, cold winter and everything connected with it, including New Year's holidays, during which I very much want to congratulate all friends and relatives and give them a piece of my soul. To do this, the handicrafts made according to the technique of paper wrapping or quilling, as it is called, for example, pictures made by oneself, are the best. Crafts made in the quilling technique, like no other paper products, can convey the beauty of the snowy winter and its intricate patterns. Snowflakes with quilling do simply and quickly. They all turn out to be very beautiful, and as gifts for the holidays they will fit perfectly, especially if they are made by a child. Let's see how to make a snowflake with your own hands. The process of making snowflakes: 1. The basis of everything in the technique of quilling is the strips of special paper stranded in rings for this kind of needlework. If they turned out too dense, then you need to put the rings on the table, so that they "parted" a little, and after, having glued the free end from one side, to shape the "droplet" by squeezing. Thus, we do the middle; 2. In the next row there will be a droplet, but of a larger size; 3. And the last, final happy. In it, we by bending the strip in the middle and twisting its edges, make the figure "heart"; 4. The final stage of the work will be gluing the finished figures. In this example, the most elementarysnowflake. If you include fantasy and will use additional forms and techniques, then you will get a more ornate and complex figure that will look great on the tree, as an ornament. In addition, this figure can be placed on a greeting card, which you can also do with your own hands. Do not be afraid to experiment, because quilling is creativity, and it does not like monotony. I wish you success!
