Paper napkins are an amazing material for creativity. Very light, all kinds of colors and shades, malleable, and, importantly, very, very budget! Many interesting things can be created from these thin pieces of paper, it is very easy to work with napkins.
Everyone likes crafts from them: both children and adults. Today I want to tell you how to quickly and easily decorate with napkins, for example, a gift.
To work, you only need paper napkins of any color, scissors, and a drop of glue.
The simplest paper napkins are usually folded in four. We need to unfold it so that it is only folded in half.
And it’s absolutely okay if your napkins are not perfectly even, like mine, for example)
Cut off a strip of half a centimeter from the side where the fold is located. The result is two single-layer rectangles that are superimposed on each other.
ТNow you need to fold the napkin with an accordion along the short edge. The width of one fold is about a centimeter.
After folding the entire sheet, we get a multi-layer cake, which needs to be fixed in the middle to fix it.
For this, a strip is useful, which we cut off from the napkin from the very beginning.
Wrap the accordion in the center with such a strip, and fix the tip with a drop of glue. It turns out such a bow.
To turn the bow into a flower, we begin very carefully wrapping one layer of the napkin up. You need to pull the layers slowly so as not to tear the napkin, it is very thin.
Layer by layer we form lush flower petals.
So our napkin peony is ready!
You can combine several colors. Fold, for example, a pink sheet, and a white one on it. It will turn out a delicate peony with a white center and pink petals along the edges.
If you want a more magnificent flower, you can use 3 or 4 layers.
You can decorate with such flowers not only a gift. Any girl will be delighted if she wakes up on the morning of her birthday and finds an airy flowerbed of multi-colored peonies on the wall in the room!
Create and fantasize!
