Satin Ribbon Poinsettia
To create a snow-white spectacular flower take:

Pattern sheets and petals
Green ribboncut into strips approximately 6-7 cm long. Oblong leaves are cut out of the resulting segments. The wavy edges and high tensile properties of the atlas gives "burning" over the fire. Each piece is taken with tweezers and burned with a flame from a lighter.
To give the leaves naturalness, they are bent in half to obtain a characteristic bend. When they are ready, each is held over a lighter flame.
White Satin Ribboncut into 10 strips. One half is made by 7, and the second - by 5 cm. Five larger and five smaller petals are cut out of the segments. As in the case of leaves, the edges are burned.
The basis for the decoration is a circle of felt. Leaves are fixed on it by means of a glue gun, and petals are glued on top. The center of the composition is decorated with sequins, semi-beads. You can use any other decoration.

Create Satin Rose
The technique of making roses is similar to the previous one. Materials take the same, except that the rose can be made in different shades, not just white.
Creating a template
Work on the flower start with creating a sketch for the petals. His draw on a piece of paper in the cell. Templates make two. One should be more than the other half a centimeter.
Pattern of petals
Larger patternimpose on the ribbon for cutting six petals. To speed up the process and make all the elements absolutely identical, the tape is folded several times before. Do not use pins.They can leave traces on the atlas. For fixing it is better to take the usual clips for paper.
- Smaller paper patternalso applied to the tape. It should make the same number of petals, that is, six.
- Pattern reducefor six more, but the smallest petals.
The result should be six large, medium and small petals.
If the edges of the satin elements turned out uneven, do not worry. These flaws will easily fix the burning. You can use both a cigarette lighter and a candle.
Satin petals hold over the flame until the edges begin to melt. To make them wavy, the tape is slightly pulled, giving the necessary shape.
For convenience, it is recommended to use tweezers to keep the material at a distance from the fire while working with it with your hands When the petals take shape, they are removed from the flame so that the material does not catch fire.
Petals are arranged both round and staggered. It all depends on the ideas and personal preferences of the craftswoman. Folded elements sew. When the first row of petals is stitched, stamens are inserted and fixed in the middle. Sew the remaining petals and get a fully formed flower.
Form of green satin ribbon. It is enough to take 10 cm. The ends of the strip are burned. This avoids disintegration of the material. The corners of the segment are folded to the center, getting a kind of "triangle" rounded from above, stitched to the bottom with a basting seam.
The thread is tied until the tips connect together. Stitched edges of the tape are stitched with a seam. It turns out a lush and beautiful piece. The number of leaves depends on the overall composition. Most often for roses make a pair.
On a round felt base with hot glue, first glue the sheets, and then the rose. This rose can be a great brooch. To this end, you only need to glue the pin to the back of the felt.
Original ideas and recommendations
There are many variations of creating spectacular and beautiful colors from ribbons of various widths. In the decoration of hats and bags look best large crafts.
They are made from strips cut to about 12 cm, which are ground together and then folded in half. The strip obtained from the stitched pieces is twisted round. To keep the composition, each coil quilted.You can also twist a rosette from a narrow ribbon. One edge of the segment stitch basting stitches, and then tighten. The tape is wound in a circle, fixed with stitches.
Flowers, in the creation of which more than one technique was used, look particularly impressive. It can be a combination of roses made in different ways. Scorched petals make it possible to get a rose-like rose, which is perfectly complemented by a small rosette glued to the center on the cone. A lot of great ideas can be emphasized from the video, show imagination and create something of your own.
