How to make a bow on an extract from the hospital with your own hands?

Usually the bows on the discharge from the maternity hospital are performed using the kanzashi technique. This is a kind of needlework that allows you to create jewelery in the form of wonderful flowers from a fabric (usually it is satin and organza ribbons). This art came to us from Japan, where geishas decorated their hair styles with flowers created from silk with the addition of elements from wood, precious and semiprecious stones and metals. In Japanese culture, this type of decoration served not only as an element of decor, but also indicated the status, age and origin of its owner. With the advent of kanzashi to the West, this jewel has lost its social overtones, becoming simply a beautiful accessory that everyone can create to their own taste.

The bow for a newborn can be absolutely any color - it depends on the gender of the child or on your color preferences. If you decide to create a bow on an extract from the maternity hospital with your own hands, below you will find a photo of several options and a description.

Kanzashi "Astra"

Kanzashi

You will need:

  • Satin ribbon of any color you like (you can use 2 colors, or more, if you want to make a smooth transition from one shade to another). The length and width of the ribbon depends on the size of the bow you want to create.
  • a circle of felt, with a diameter of 3-5 cm - for the base;
  • scissors;
  • hot melt glue and a gun for it;
  • lighter, soldering iron or candle;
  • beads, rhinestones.

Instructions for making:

  1. Cut the tape into 40-70 pieces. The quantity depends on the width of the ribbon and the size of the base: the wider the first and the smaller the second, the less lengths you will need. Also, their number is influenced by how lush the flower you want to end up with. The length of the segments is usually 7-8 cm, for the central lobes you need to cut the tape 1-1.5 cm shorter.
  2. Take one piece of tape and bend it along its face outward, and then cut off the tip at an angle and melt it. This is best done with a soldering iron.Kanzashi
  3. Opposite edges of the petal bend the opposite - with the seamy side up. You should have this "construction":Kanzashi
  4. In the same way it is necessary to fold and cut all segments of the tape.
  5. When all the petals are ready, they can be collected in a flower. To do this, take a cut out base of felt, apply a drop of hot melt at a distance of about 1 cm from the edge and glue the first petal. Then glue around the rest of the petals in a circle.
  6. When the first layer is completed, a second layer can be glued on top of it. Place the petals a little closer to the center of the base so that their outer corners fall between the petals of the first layer.
  7. Continue to glue the following rows of petals on the same principle, using smaller petals as you approach the center of the flower.
  8. If there is a desire, you can glue a beautiful bead into the center of the flower, paste some small rhinestones on several petals in random order - this will give you the effect of dew on the flower.
