Simple and beautiful flowers and bouquets of satin ribbons

Flowers are the perfect decoration for clothes, hairstyles and rooms. But living plants quickly wither, so needlewomen learned to make artificial flowers from satin ribbons with their own hands. How difficult is it that you need to perform such crafts? What nuances of product assembly should be considered? How to find a worthy use of man-made beauty?

The use of satin ribbons for making flowers originated in Japan. This type of craftwork is called "kanzashi". Initially, such artificial gifts of flora served as a decoration for the image of the bride. However, over time, the Japanese began to decorate them and everyday hairstyles. However, even now, the tradition of wearing "floral" ribbon decorations is kept for appropriate reasons. For example, the festive kimono of a geisha is complemented by kanzashi with buttercups. As for the domestic fashionistas, the flowers of satin ribbons are used not only in the hairpins, but also for decoration:

What you need to work with ribbons?

You can make your own hands from satin ribbons flowers of the most incredible shapes and sizes. It is worth noting that the level of skill in the manufacture of high-quality crafts is important, as well as the right material - along with tools for needlework.

By the way, the most convenient is the width of 5 cm. And in order to enjoy the process of making flowers, you need to prepare:

  • a conventional lighter or paraffin candle for processing and gluing the edges of the tape;
  • paint for pictures on fabrics (if you want to paint the tape or to focus on some details);
  • additional elements (beads, beads, sequins, rhinestones).
