If you are used to making small handmade masterpieces with your own hands and in your creative bins, as is often the case, pieces of organza are lying around, then a great idea would be to make very delicate flowers from it. They can be used as a brooch, beautify them with a hair band, a handbag or a bracelet, and perhaps you will come up with some kind of original application for them. The great advantage of these flowers is that they do not crumple at all, and in case they get wet, it’s enough to just leave them to dry in the air - their petals will be stretched again and will delight and delight others! Another interesting point is an unusual acceptance of work in their manufacture. Starting to create your little wonderful masterpiece, you will certainly appreciate how exciting and interesting it is to burn the organza on the candle!You will need: - candle and matches ; - scissors, pins,needle and thread; - simple pencil, possibly also compasses, ruler and eraser for building patterns; - piece of paper in a checkered box; - organza patches; - beads, beads, pearls or sequins depending on your imagination. First, on a squared paper, draw a flower about 12 cm in diameter with 5 or 6 equal petals. If you want to get a water lily-lily as a result, make 4 rounded petals, and if the chrysanthemum, make 12 oblong petals. But starting with chrysanthemum in this technique is not the best idea, because in order to singe 12 fine petals, you must already have at least a little skill and experience. The most optimal is 6 petals. Subsequently, you can vary the number and shape of the petals, as well as the diameter of the entire outlet.Then cut out the paper pattern. Fold the organza into 4 layers and, applying a pattern on top, we chop everything together with pins. Now roughly along the contour roughly cut flower.Organza is a difficult material, its layers slide and shift all the time, but this should not upset you at all at this stage. Still, the final shape of the flower is attached not to scissors, but to a spark of a candle. Therefore, if your petals are uneven, crooked and uneven, the flower from this will only look more alive and natural. In each blank, the petals are cut to the middle, leaving an uncut area right in the middle with a diameter of about 1 cm. In total, 8-12 blanks should be cut out from the fabric.
After all the blanks have been worked out, let's start assembling the flower.
Now we are proceeding to the most fascinating stage of making a flower. We light the candle and begin to work carefully on the edges of each workpiece. Take one billet and singe its edges on the flame. Organza is a synthetic material, and it is enough just to bring the edge of the flower to a distance of 2-3 cm from the side of the flame, as the cut is melted. To make the form more alive, you need to bring not only the side of the flame, but above it.The secret is that when you hold a cut above the flame in 5-6 cm above the candle, it does not just melt, but also beautifully bends, acquiring fanciful, wavy curves of the edges. Here you need to be very careful not to burn your fingers and not to burn, or rather, not to melt the entire billet completely. Petals will be unequal, with different bends and different lengths. This is normal. Fused edges, as a rule, turn out to be darker than the tone of the fabric, especially if the candle is working during work.
