    Re: Have you done any dot art ?

    for knowing more about dot art makers

    please visit Dot Art Markers

    Do-A-Dot Art is the fun and easy way to create fabulous art work. Similar to bingo dabbers, but non-toxic and washable, Do-A-Dot is the no mess way to paint. No cups or brushes, no drips or spills, these easy grip bottles will create countless works of art. Now, don't confuse these with the paints that come in the rolling tube. Those are sloppy and watery. They don't compare to Do-A-Dot! Do-A-Dot dabbers are easy to use, neat, tidy and do not leak.

    There are two versions of dabbers available. The traditional Original Dabbers are dot markers which have a large application tip and can only be used for dabbing. The newer Mini Dots And Doodles Dabbers have a smaller tip and can be both dabbed and dragged to create pictures.[​IMG]

    Tissue paper flowers

    this is another beautiful craft from the net using tissue paper....try out !!!!
    Once done the flowers look like the pictures below.:)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Instructions below:

    (1) First step

    [​IMG]
    Take one group of pre-cut tissue paper (10 large or 14 small sheets of the same color), and fold accordionstyle along the pre-scored lines. Fold a length of wire at a point about six inches from its end, and wrap around the center of the tissue paper bundle. Twist several times to secure.


    (2) This is the second step.
    Fan out tissue paper by flattening out the folds. Starting on one side of the pom-pom, separate one sheet of tissue, and pull it up and toward the center. Repeat with remaining sheets until you have a full flower.

    [​IMG]



    (3) this is the third step

    Twist remaining length of wire into a loop and use to hang.

    [​IMG]



    It looks like the beautiful flowers above.

    Re: Tissue paper flowers

    [​IMG]

    from www.lillyellablogspot.com

    step by step photos.






    [​IMG]



    What you'll need for one 5" flower:
    4 pieces of tissue paper, 10" x 5"
    18" piece of thin wire, floral or any other type
    Scissors

    [​IMG]


    Stack the four sheets of tissue on top of each other. Make 3/8" accordion folds, creasing after each fold. It is easier to make one fold, flip it over, make the other, and repeat, so you are always folding up away from you and it's easy to see.

    [​IMG]


    Fold the 18" piece of wire in half and slip over the center of the folded tissue. Twist the bottom closed. Using sharp scissors, trim the ends of the paper into rounded or pointy shapes. It is rounded for this one.

    [​IMG]


    Separate the four tissues layers, one at a time until the flower begins to take shape. Depending on what you will use them for, you can keep the bottom flat or you can puff them into a ball for hanging.

    [​IMG]



    You can use these little flowers just about anywhere!

    Re: Tissue paper flowers

    carnation flowers - making - from www.crafts.kaboos.com

    [​IMG]

    Instructions ":
    What you'll need:
    • Pink tissue paper, cut into 7" x 3" rectangles (2 per flower)
    • Pink and purple chenille stems
    • Scissors
    • Thin white ribbon
    How to make it:

    1. Take two tissue paper rectangles and lay them one on top of the other so that that line up exactly.
    Cut ½" wide slits along the long edge about half way up the tissue paper.

    [​IMG]
    1. Cut a one-inch piece off the chenille stem and set aside.
    2. [​IMG]
    Place the long piece of chenille in the center of the tissue paper rectangle, the slits should be at the top. [​IMG]

    Fold tissue paper in half, over the chenille stem, like a greeting card.

    [​IMG]


    Holding the chenille in place, roll the tissue paper up around the chenille.
    [​IMG]

    Hold tissue paper in place and wrap the small piece of chenille (that you trimmed off in step 3) around the tissue paper, below the slits.
    [​IMG]
    Fluff up the petals of the flower to your liking.

    Repeat steps 1-8 for as many flowers as you like.

    Gather flower stems together and tie bouquet together with a piece of white ribbon. [​IMG]


    Tips:

    • Save tissue paper from birthday presents to use in craft projects.
    • Chenille stems are available in a variety of colors, check for clearance sales after each holiday!
    • Yarn may be used as a substitute for the ribbon.

    Re: paper flowers

    how to make the flowers as in the picture below : www.whipup.net

    [​IMG]








    [​IMG]
    Fold the bottom corner to the top. This will make a triangle.
    [​IMG]
    Fold the left and right corners up to the middle corner. This make a square.
    [​IMG]
    Fold the same points down. The folded edge will line up exactly on top of the outside edge of the square.
    [​IMG]
    Open up the flaps you have just created and flatten them.
    [​IMG]
    Fold the top triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper. (This will result in 3 little petals on the inside of your petal; if you fold the top triangles away from you, this will result in only 1 petal on the inside of the petal – see variation on pattern below.)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Fold the triangles back using the crease you made earlier and glue the outside triangles together.
    Now make 5 more of these petals and glue them all together. Make sure you wait until the glue is dry after every petal and take your time. You will need 12 flowers to complete the kusudama ball flower.[​IMG]

    Re: Tissue paper flowers

    Another one for you with instructions (from the net)


    Paper Flower Materials

    • Eight 3-inch squares of flower-color tissue paper. Notice that they are not perfect squares; no two real petals are exactly the same.
    • Four 3-inch long rectangles of green tissue paper
    • fairly heavy wire for the stem.
    • About 4 inches of thinner gauge wire to wind the petals together.
    • Green florist’s tape for wrapping the stem
    Tools

    • Wire cutters
    • Pen or pencil for curling the leaves
    How to Make the Paper Flower

    [​IMG] For the petals, use the scissors to round three of the four corners. You can cut a stack of about four at a time.



    Holding the pointed end of a stack of petals in one hand, roll one of the curved edges around the pen.



    [Here’s the secret to the look of elegance.] While keeping the edge rolled around the pen, use both hands to scrunch the edges together toward the middle. Remove the pen. Notice that the petals hold the rolled and scrunched shape.


    [​IMG] Repeat with the opposite petal edge.


    [​IMG] Separate the petals.


    [​IMG] Assemble the rose. Notice that the center petals are bunched quite tightly and then the whorls begin to flatten out to a rose in full bloom. Keep all the bottom petal points at the same level. There is a tendency to want to put them lower and lower.


    [​IMG] Wrap the thin wire around the base of the rose to hold the bloom together.


    [​IMG] Fold the long wire in thirds. This will make it thick enough to resemble a real stem.


    [​IMG] Cut the four green rectangles into leaf shapes.


    [​IMG] Roll and scrunch the leaves just as you did the petals.


    [​IMG] Begin wrapping the stem with florist’s tape from the top down and on an angle. Stretch the tape as you go; this is what makes it stick. Incorporate the leaves one by one as you wind the tape.


    here is your [​IMG]
