But then, our craftsmen and carefully considered professional candy bouquets and concluded that produce flowers of sweets with their hands the power of almost everyone. Of course, this requires not only specific knowledge but also the artistic taste and sense of style and action.
Indeed, the ability to do with their hands out candy colors always come in handy. It is fashionable to replace the traditional gift set "colors plus a box of chocolates" is sweet bouquets. Even teachers in the first of September give such bouquets and not to mention the less formal celebrations? So you need to learn this: useful, informative, fun. So, learn to make flowers out of sweets with their hands.
Materials and tools
For bouquets, you will need the usual floral stationery and materials and tools:
Packing tape and film, corrugated paper, transparent cellophane;
Double-sided adhesive tape or a regular (narrow and wide);
BBQ sticks and toothpicks;
Floral Foam (foam, foam rubber).
Naturally, for the production of sweet flowers and candy will be needed. Candy can use any chocolate and candy in wrappers and without them, round and square. In short, all of the sweets (down to jelly and marshmallow) can make flowers with his own hands, the more that some special devices for this purpose it is not required.
The principle of manufacturing
Flowers of sweets may be different. Some candy bouquet is in bright candy wrappers (or wrapped in beautiful paper) play the role of color. Other make bouquets of artificial flowers (hand made), where sweets are only part of the flower. For example, chamomile, poppy crocus or corrugated paper can have candy midway. Candy may be lower "petals" Paper Roses. Pink Poppy bud or just hide in the bowl of your flower sweets.
In any case, the principle of making flowers from one candy: candy attached to toothpicks or sticks for barbecue and decorated. Then, of these "flowers" on the stems, sticks make up a bouquet, which in turn, is made of decorative paper, transparencies, and other floral materials.
To put candy on the stalk, you just need a tail tightly primotat candy wrappers to floss (barbecue stick) teip-tape or ordinary adhesive tape, then decorate the point of attachment. If no candy wrapper or a wrapper does not have a "tail", the candy was placed in a brown paper or film (kulechek cylinder), which primatyvayut to floss. If you wish, you can supplement candy petals and leaves cut from paper or film. Let's look at a few simple options for making flowers from sweets with their hands.
Candy - flowers
Sweet bouquet can consist of flowers combined with flowers, chocolates. To produce these colors do not require special skills and knowledge to make artificial flowers. Everything is very simple. For example, truffles in beautiful shiny wrappers (candy or any other) you own hands turns into delicate flowers, candy. How to do it? Consider three options:
Take a piece of candy in wrappers with one tail, toothpick and teip-tape or Scotch tape. Then applied to the ponytail toothpick cheat wrapper around it and secured with duct tape.
Take candy rectangular, square piece of wrapping paper side is eight to ten centimeters longer than candy floss and tape. Candy wrapping paper, forming a cylinder in the middle of which is a sweetie. One end of an empty cylinder wrapped in a "tail" cheat him around cutting-toothpicks and secured with tape. The second blank end tied ribbon.
Take a round or oval candy, rectangular piece of wrapping paper or film, toothpick, scotch. Of rectangular candy wrappers wring kulechek cone, put in a piece of candy, and the free ends of the plastic bag wrapped around a toothpick. Fix with duct tape.
Believe me, it's actually quite simple. Even if the first attempt does not succeed gently, do not worry - the skill comes with experience. You very quickly get the hand to make such flowers, candy, and combines them into bouquets, complementing the composition with fresh flowers.
This method of making flowers for sweet bouquets considered to be more difficult and time consuming. It will require you skills with a corrugated paper or any other material for making artificial flowers. For beginners to master suite design can be advised as sample material is corrugated paper. Simply, it is considered one of the most "grateful" materials for the design suites. We'll try to make rosebuds and crocuses of sweets and corrugated paper.
Perhaps the most simple but very effective method of making artificial flowers. To do this, you will need round candy or truffles, toothpicks, corrugated paper (pink or white), thread and scissors. For one bud cut two squares of paper with a side of about ten to twelve centimeters (for sweets like "Raffaello"). Determine the direction of equity ripple and cut the upper part of the square in a semicircle. Now put them on each other, displacing the upper left square, and gently stretch the middle of the petals, making it slightly convex. Then put on the right edge of the folded petals of candy and wrap it gently, turning onto a roll. Empty the lower part (straight edge) bud tighten around toothpicks and tie thread. Top "petals" slightly flatten and stretch along the edge, making it wavy.
For one, we need a five crocus petals - strips of corrugated paper about the size of four to ten centimeters. Fractional direction of corrugation has to go on the long side lobe. Take one strip and wrap the top edge (one-third the length of) one turn inward. Then bend in place twisting bands wrap the "tail" and stretch the edge of the petals, making it a convex-concave. Then we put all five petals in a row and are fastened together by a stapler.
From transparent packaging film cut out a square (side about twelve centimeters), put it on the middle of the candy and wrap all free edges like a candy wrapper. Applied to the toothpick ponytail, wrap around the film and anchoring thread or tape. Now carefully putting a tape of the petals to floss, candy proved to finish in the middle of the flower, and also fix them with tape or tape-teip.
Try yourself in the role of sweet florist. Did you come up with something of their own, some exclusive techniques of manufacture of candy colors. But even if you just take advantage of the experience of other masters, you still will be able to realize their creative potential. Good luck!
