Stylish vases of paper with your own hands</a>

The term "paper-plastic" appeared relativelyRecently, at the end of the last century and means the art of creating voluminous (relief) models of paper. The idea of ​​creating such three-dimensional sculptures from paper was very fond of everything - from schoolchildren to designers.

And it's not surprising - such designer sculptures of paper look ultra modern.

Enough paper and a little patience.

You will need

  • - paper
  • - ruler
  • - an awl or knitting needle
  • - glue
  • - double sided tape
  • - Vase or other container for stand



On the Internet there are a huge number of manuals on paper-plastic, I propose to create a bright splendor of paper vases on your desk.


It is important to pick up the paper in size so that it can fully cover the capacity.
We take the standard A4 sheet. After you make the folds, you need to do the folding (successive bending). Fold the paper in the middle and then start bending further until the lines of equal width appear. First we make parallel folds, then perpendicular, and after that - diagonal. It is possible to fold without preliminary marking, but it is better to first determine the lines of future folds, so it will be easier to bend.


After you have performed the folds, we make a creasing: by making an awl along the ruler, create deep grooves. This is necessary to ensure that the folds are more clear and hold the shape better.
Now you need to bend the outer triangles on the upper corners and repeat along the entire surface of the paper.
This step is always at first somewhat difficult and time-consuming. However, when you adjust, the business will go quickly, as if by magic.


Folds on paper play not only aesthetic, butAnd practical role. They create so-called stiffeners, providing stability to the future creation. Therefore, try to create folds more pointed. Instead of paper it is better to use colored cardboard, preferably glossy - for better visual effect.
Now that we have a sheet with clearSharp edges, go to the next stage - the formation of the model. We fold the paper like an accordion. Using a double-sided adhesive tape, fix it on a glass vase or any other suitable container.


Create several such vases, and you will get a bright composition, from which it is difficult to tear off the view. With this technology, you can create not only vases, but also other interior items, for example lampshades.
