Astra from foamiran in 15 steps
Total Time: 35 minutes
Prepare the strips
Make preparations for the future Aster. To do this, cut a strip 30 cm long and 5 cm wide from the lilac foamiran. For the middle of the flower, cut a narrow yellow strip 1 cm wide and about 20 cm long.
Work with the yellow stripe
Start forming the middle of the Aster. Make frequent cuts on the yellow blank with scissors. The cuts should not reach the opposite edge.
Use a metal part
Take a floral wire, twist it and glue it to the edge of the yellow strip.
Use the glue
Twist the yellow blank, periodically fixing it with hot glue. In this case, the incisions should be turned up, they will be the stamens of the flower.
Twist the strip
You should get an yellow center of the flower, as in the photo.
Glue the lilac stripe
Take the lilac strip of foamiran to make the aster petals. Fold the edges of the strip in half and glue them together.
Finish gluing the lilac stripe
You should get a strip glued on one side.
Cut the lilac stripe
Use scissors to make incisions on the side of the fold, not reaching the glued side.
Process the strip completely
Make these cuts along the entire lilac stripe.
Cut along the fold
Cut a line along the entire length of the lilac strip at the bend point with scissors. You will get a narrow blank for the petals of the Aster.
Connect the yellow and lilac foamiran together
Apply the yellow center to the edge of the lilac strip and fix it with hot glue.
Fix it with glue
Continue to twist the lilac petals on the yellow blank. Periodically fix some places with hot glue.
Spread the flower
This is easier to do if you turn it over, then the petals should spread out to the sides.
Get an aster with straight petals
The flower should look like this from the front side, as shown in the photo.
Make the petals wavy
Use an iron to make the flower more realistic. Apply your flower to a preheated iron for a few seconds. If necessary, form the petals. Cut the extra floral wire from the back of the flower. You should get a similar Aster from foamiran.
This flower can be the basis for creating a cute jewelry or unique decor.
