DIY paper tulip craft
Today we will make a real bouquet of paper tulips. This is a wonderful gift for March 8 or birthday for mom, grandmother, sister or girlfriend. A real surprise for those who love tulips. Older kids or kids can do this work with the help of adults.
For crafts, we need:
Thick colored paper
Tubes or wire
Crafting a tulip made of paper with your own
First we need to make a tulip template, for this we will need to fold the cardboard sheet
In half and cut the outline tulip so that the tulip is symmetrical.
The template for cutting and the basis of the future tulip
According to our template, we cut out tulips from thick paper.For each flower, we need 4 blanks.
Colored paper, which we will paste on the template
We take our template - now it will be the basis for the flower, which we will paste over with colored paper.
Take one blank of colored paper, fold it in half and glue it with one half to the half of our template. We fit tightly. As a result, one half of our template should be glued to one half of the paper. The second half of the paper is still free.
Pasted to one half of the template half blank (it is folded in half)
On the other side of the template, glue the other blank in the same way - half to half. As a result, two blanks will be glued on the template from two sides, and their two parts will be together in the middle. Now we glue them together.
We should have exactly half of the future tulip.It does not seem very simple, but keep in view the bouquet that we should get - everything will become a little clearer.
They glued the second half of the template to the second half of the template (it is also folded in half)
Fix the tulip
Turn our tulip and do the same on the other side. We glue two blanks to it so that their central sides touch the center of the tulip and glue them together.
We glued the free halves of the blanks to each other
If we notice irregularities on the edges, we can easily remove them just by carefully cutting them off with scissors.
We trim the tulip with scissors
We recommend stapling the tulip with clips and letting the glue dry.
We fasten it, let the glue dry
After the basic craftsmanship tulip for mom is ready, we can proceed to the design of the flower as a whole. We need to plant a bud on a stick, any decorative twig, wrapped wire, cocktail tube and stick a leaflet to the stick.
A bouquet of tulips with your own hands
If you still have patience, you can make a whole bunch of such tulips.
