The needlewomen all go to work.
It would seem that for what old newspapers and magazines are needed, but also from them the craftswomen make cute and, most importantly, necessary gizmos.
Preparation for work
Prepare the tubes. Newspaper sheets are cut into strips 6-8 cm wide. It is more convenient, faster and easier to make with a long metal ruler and a clerical knife. On the newspaper, mark the width of the strips, fold several sheets on top of each other, so that the sheet with the markings was at the top of the stack. Then attach a metal ruler and cut the strips along it, trying to cut all the sheets. Also, the strips can be cut and ordinary scissors, and they do not necessarily have to be absolutely smooth, it's okay if in some places the width of the strip will be a couple of millimeters already or thicker.
Tighten the tubes. This will help you with a spoke or a wooden stick for a shish kebab. Put a strip on top of her stick at an angle of about 45 degrees. Begin winding a strip of newspaper on a stick periodically lubricating it with PVA glue. When wrapping the paper completely, pull the stick out, leave the tubes to dry.
Staining of tubules
When the tubes completely dry, you canGo directly to making things and paint it ready, or do it in advance. It is best to pre-color the tubes, if you are going to produce a multi-colored product. Any paint will do: acrylic, gouache, stain.
It is very convenient to use for this purpose a can of paint. To make the tubes completely painted, you will need to apply a few layers on them, and each previous one must completely dry out.
To get the right color, you can mix the colorsDifferent shades or use color. However, products painted with these paints are afraid of water, so they can not be wiped with a damp cloth and even more so wash. If you want to give a special strength to a thing woven from newspaper tubes, cover the finished product with several layers of lacquer.
Weaving from newspaper tubes
Now proceed directly to manufacturingthings. Fold 2 tubes crosswise, if the product is large, fold 2 tubes together and put them crosswise (this will give additional strength to the base). Then add 2 more tubes, between them should get an angle of 45 degrees.
The principle of weaving from newspaper tubes is the same as when weaving baskets of twigs.
Now take another tube from the newspaper (sheWill be working) and begin to braid the ground. One fly from above, the next - from below, alternate so to the end of the series. Lubricate the tube with PVA glue and continue to weave the following rows. If the tube ends, glue the edge inside with glue and insert the next one into it. Wait until the glue dries, and continue to weave.
To make the sides, the tubes of the base liftUp and continue to braid them with workers to the required height. Rest the remaining edges of the base and hide it in the weave, cut off excess. By this principle, you can make a variety of baskets, boxes for jewelry, breadcrumbs, blossom a bottle of champagne or wine and much more, the Internet has many master classes to make gizmos in this technique.
