Greedy For Colour: Tissue Paper and Tulle Flower Tutorial.

Greedy For Colour: Tissue Paper and Tulle Flower Tutorial.
Well, here it is - a tutorial on how to make a tissue paper flower (with tulle). Good luck and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section if anything is unclear. First of all, assemble your stuff - tissue paper (2 colours if desired), tulle, string and scissors. Cut two rectangles of each colour and two rectangles of tulle. The flower I have made used 38cm x 25.5cm sheets but it doesn't really matter, just so long as the pieces are all rectangular and of the same size. Lay the six sheets on top of each other. Once the folding is complete, bend it in half like a fan and tie it tightly (so that it gathers) in the middle with string Snip the ends with scissors to make a petal shape. Fan out one side into a half circle. Then, delicately begin separating the layers, taking care not to ruin the pleats or tear the tissue paper (when this happens, don't cry... Continue separating and Unfurl the other side and continue in the same way, separating, lifting and zshoozshing. p.s.

Fresques murales avec des bouchons en plastique source : art bouchon plastique Voir aussi : créations en bouchons plastique Tissue Paper Flowers When I was in grade school we had Spanish class once a week. I took three years of Spanish in high school and then switched to French in college. I know enough Spanish to ask where the bathroom is, but whether or not I understand the answer is another matter. Oh well, at least I took away one thing from all those years of Spanish class - these tissue paper flowers! I made these all the time as a kid. They're really that simple! All you need is some colored tissue paper and a bunch of green pipe cleaners. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. ...and carefully separate the layers of paper. 6. 7. I experimented with a bunch of different flower shapes. To make a chrysanthemum, follow the instructions above. To make a dahlia, use 4 squares of hot pink tissue and 2 squares of pink. To make a peony, use 2 squares each of pink and pale pink, and 4 squares of white. To make a rose, use 2 squares pale peach and 4 squares peach . To make a daisy, use 6 squares of white tissue and 2 squares of yellow.

Crafty Ribbons | Hello wednesday - taggie bib Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!! Hello everyone, it is me Rachie. It all came about because I have fallen head over heels in love with this NEW baby washing line ribbon here . But this time just for play................... As soon as I saw the ribbon, I knew what I wanted to make - a taggie bib. I used a simple shop bought white bib and sewed the ribbon tags around the outside edge. Ali stole all the Challenge boxes and envelopes and we have not seen all the creations yet, but I am sure other challengers will have made a form of taggie. Phew that's my posting and "guest designer" status over, it was rather fun. Enjoy what ever you have planned for today. Rachie x x P.S.

Comment faire un pot de poudre magique de fée! - Trucs et Bricolages HOOOO! C’est trop mignon! IMPORTANT: Plusieurs tutoriels suggèrent de les faire avec des bâtons lumineux, (light Sticks) et SI, vous décidez de les faire tout de même avec des bâtons lumineux. Attention de ne pas toucher le liquide des tubes lumineux avec vos doigts, ce sont des produits chimiques. Alors voici une alternative pour que le pot soit toujours bon! -D’un pot Mason ou d’un pot qu’un enfant est incapable d’ouvrir une fois qu’il est bien fermé. -Appliquez la peinture directement dans le pot ou sur un acétate que vous aurez coupé à la bonne dimension pour qu’il entre dans le pot. Il est possible d’ajouter des paillettes argentés dans le pot, tout dépend de vous, vous aimez ou non. 2 tutoriels vidéo pour vous aider! La première photo de la vidéo que vous voyez, est le résultat de ceux faits avec les bâtons lumineux, mais elle explique comment les faire avec la peinture plutôt que les bâtons.

Paper flower tutorial I thought some of you would enjoy a quick tutorial on how to make those little paper flowers I used as part of my table setting a couple weeks ago. The credit for these go to Martha Stewart (I saw this idea nearly 10 years ago in her magazine, but haven't been able to find it on her website). So here I go.. Step 1: Draw a spiral on a 4x4" square sheet of paper Step 2: Cut out spiral along lines you have drawn Step 3: Begin rolling up the spiral from the outside Step 4: Keep on rolling until there's no more left to roll Step 5: You're done! I used a slightly heavier weight paper for this one, but you can use normal paper as well. Note: You may use a bit of glue or double-stick tape to keep the flower from unrolling and loosening up with time.

Ribbon Crafts - Make Ribbon Crafts And Projects Hello, readers. It’s a stormy Monday, or at least it is here in New York, and my outlook has taken a nosedive as a result. It’s the kind of day that’s really only good for a few things, but since an afternoon nap isn’t in the cards for me, crafts it is! I just came upon a stash of assorted ribbon that I’ve socked away from hair accessories, gift wrapping, clothing and other crafty endeavors. So, my mission is clear: To find ribbon crafts that anyone can make to brighten up a rainy day. Start with this accented shower curtain, check out Farima’s delightful find, and then move on to the stunners I spotted on Pinterest… I think this colorful ribbon centerpiece by Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry was meant to be hung over a party table, but I’d absolutely hang it over my kitchen table. Just when I thought I’d seen every possible way you could style a mantel, I found this setup by Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree from an elegant San Francisco wedding on Green Wedding Shoes.

Dessins de Noël et graphisme sur carte à gratter fabriquée par les enfants par Rachel, le 3 décembre 2012 Arts plastiques autour des dessins de Noël hier pour Tim et moi, puisque nous avons décidé de fabriquer à nouveau de la carte à gratter, pour y tracer des sapins de Noël. J'ai recommencé toute seule aujourd'hui avec une autre technique de remplissage, plus facile pour de jeunes enfants, dans le but de faire une boule de Noël décorée de graphismes, de quoi motiver les élèves à s'appliquer ! Pour que les motifs se détachent bien les uns des autres, j'ai colorié ma feuille de lignes horizontales, avec des pastels gras, en veillant à ne pas laisser de papier blanc (ou presque pas !) Pour les sapins, nous avons au contraire mélangé les couleurs pour obtenir beaucoup de variations quand on y gratterait les boules. J'avais constaté lors d'une précédente séance que Tim avait du mal à associer des taches sur une feuille vierge, alors je lui ai proposé de dessiner des zones, en croisant des lignes dans différents sens. Quand c'est bien sec, on peut gratter le motif.

Emily's Little World | St. Louis children's newborn maternity senior photographer: How To Make A T-Shirt Fabric Flower: Tutorial Time! For my birthday two summers ago, I got a lovely little gift card to Anthropologie, and treated myself to two hair clips that looked like these: They were a bit pricey, as Anthro stuff tends to be-- $15 apiece, and after months of wearing them and pondering them and KNOWING I could make them myself somehow, I finally took some time to actually dissect the flower (not LITERALLY, but close! I poked and prodded that thing until I was SURE it'd fall apart!) This tutorial is going to share that process with you, so you can make a flower that looks like THIS: Pretty close, right? T-Shirt Fabric Flower Supply List 1/4 + yard of t-shirt fabric, also called cotton knit interlocking paper to make a template scissors straight pins felt in a matching or complimentary color glue (I use either Tacky Glue or hot glue) hair accessory to complete the flower (headband, clip, pin) So to begin, you will need a little bit of t-shirt fabric.
