They can also act as a souvenir for a loved one. However, it is much more pleasant to do something with your own hands.Moreover, the person who received a gift"Handmade" (tulips, roses or swans made of paper made with their own hands), will appreciate it because it will understand that you have invested a part of yourself in this present. In addition, this product looks no less original and beautiful than the one purchased in the store.
Very nice look homemade swans. Of the paper with their own hands, the figures of these birds are often wanted by parents who want to do business with the baby, realizing that such an occupation is capable not only of uniting them, but also positively affecting the development of the motor skills of the child's hands. Some people are engaged in making paper crafts for their own pleasure, as this activity very well calms and relaxes. Regardless of what is the reason for your desire to fold a swan or a tulip of paper with your own hands, first of all, you need to familiarize yourself with the scheme of making this craft.
To make a swan, you will need scissors and a sheet of paper, the size of whichshould depend on what sizeplanned finished product. The sheet must be folded diagonally in such a way that a square is obtained, the excess part of the paper must be cut off. This is a prerequisite if you want a beautiful swan made of paper with your own hands.
Next, the sheet must be opened and bent todiagonal line two adjacent sides of the resulting square. Then turn the sheet to the other side and again bend the inclined sides to the previously planned diagonal line.
We turn again and bend the figure in such a way that the narrow side of the product (beak) meets the angle of the wider side (tail).
In order for the future swans of paper, theirhands made (in case you plan to make more than one figure, but, say, a pair of swans), were stable and did not disintegrate, all the bends need to be carefully ironed. Then we fold the bird in half and from inside the product stretch the neck, but do not lift it completely perpendicular to the figure, but leave it slightly inclined to the back of the swan.
Naturally, one can not imagine a swan withoutwings. They should also be got from inside the product and straightened. The tail is made by bending the opposite corner from the neck up, and then down. To make a bird's head, a narrow triangle must be bent inward in such a way that the head size is larger than the neck. And the last step in making a swan is the beak.
It is done by bending the sharp end of the figure inside the head. Thus, you will receive a magnificent figure of a swan.
And do not think that it is very difficult inpaper swans are manufactured. From paper by their own hands, anyone who has a desire to engage in such activities can do it. And if you have a certain imagination of such figures, you can make a whole composition, which you can decorate the house or give to friends.
