Sweet wedding gift
Making a bouquet should start with in colors. We cut a square of 10 * 10 cm from a transparent polyethylene film. In its center we place chocolate truffle. (Candy can be taken any, very well look in a bouquet of candy in a foil of a cone-shaped or round shape).
Take a toothpick,We place its end in the center of the candy and twist the edges of the film around.
Fix with scotch tape.
Petals of flowers are made of two strips of corrugated paper. (The width of the strip is 4-5 cm, length 18-20 cm).
We fold each strip of paper in 5 additions. At a distance of 3-3.5 cm from the edge, cut out the semicircle. It turns out the blank for 5 petals.
Next, the petals need to be shaped. Using corrugated paper makes flowers look very natural. The paper holds a shape obtained as a result of slight deformation. Bend the bottom of the paper strip with your fingers into the inside, and bend the top with scissors.
The first layer of petals tightly wrapped around candy and fastened to the base of the flower (the junction of truffles and toothpicks),then securely fix with threads.
A half-open bud should turn out.
We place the second layer of paper more freely, to give greater pomp.
Fasten with the same thread and glue with adhesive tape on top.
From the green paper cut a small strip. It should cover the place of attachment of the petals. The flower produces a green cup. It is fastened with adhesive tape.
The result is a magnificent rose.
How many colors to make depends on basket size. For my wedding basket, it took 11 pieces to make. Some flowers are made of pink paper, some - from white. After all the flowers are made, you can begin to form a composition. At the bottom of the wicker basket set a rectangular piece of foam. The choice of foam is due to its ability to keep its shape and softness, which will easily fix the stalks of toothpicks in the desired position. The rectangle should be clearly placed in size and be 2-3 cm below the height of the basket. To the bottom is fastened with packing tapes.
The remaining gap between the foam and the edges of the basket is densely filled with white paper. Center and braided edge taped double-sided tape.
In the center on the scotch is installed a statuette, and on the edge are laid out mini chocolates.
Packing tape can decorate the handle of the basket, and at the edges tie small bows. We fill the basket with prepared candy roses,alternating pink and white color. At a slight angle we stick the wooden stalks into the foam plastic stand. We fill small intervals between flowers with green branches. I had a thin plastic that scrolled well (it turned out something similar to bindweed). In general, leaflets can be used any. Also, if you wish, you can decorate the roses with beads or rhinestones attached to a quick-drying glue.
Such an original candy - a flower gift will pleasantly surprise the newlyweds. Most importantly, things made with their own hands, are soulful and warm.
