Gum - a flower made of leather and fur

Every girl loves to decorate her head with ribbons, hoops or flowers. If you have a piece of non-thick leather at home (from an old bag, jacket or any other leather product), then do not throw it away, but make yourself an ornament with your own hands that will differ in individuality and creative idea. To create flower - leather gum, we need: - any thin skin; - a little natural fur; - feathers from a duck or any other bird (feathers can be taken decorative); - scissors;- glue moment crystal; - handle; - form for a petal; - elastic.
 we need
The next step is to take a piece of skin and a shape for a petal. Circle on the skin this form in the amount that it will fit. On average, we need 40-50 petals for one flower.
 Circle on the skin
I made a form in the form of a heart,so that the edges of the flower do not turn out unnaturally smooth. Then cut all the petals.

The next step is to burn the edges of the petals, this can be done in three ways.1 way - fry the leaves in the pan. 2 way - use tweezers and a candle. 3 way - use a lighter. Frying the leaves in the pan leave a lot of soot in the apartment. After them, it is very difficult to deflate a flat in 2 minutes, but black soot does not form on the skin. A candle can very quickly process the edges of the petal, but then soot will remain on the leaf. The best way is with a cigarette lighter. It does not leave nagara, it quickly burns all the ends, but the gas is consumed very quickly.

These petals after frying pans. If you overdo them a little, the edges can be badly damaged (as in the photo).

Here, for comparison, there are petals that there were obzhin on the griddle and above the candle. As they themselves saw, a candle was used on the left side to process the leaves, soot from the candle formed on the inside of the leaf, but it wouldn't hurt us, because we will work with the second side. Next we look for any round shape or if it is not limping eye meter, draw a circle on the skin, which will be the basis for our flower. I took the cap from the camera, but your form can be both bigger and smaller. Next, cut a circle out of a piece of leather.

Next stage we need to paste the leaves on our base. They do not necessarily glue exactly to each other, and you can in a chaotic manner. Rows can be 3-5-8, it all depends onhow much petals you have and how much you want a lush flower.

You can apply glue not only on the base for the flower, but also on the petals themselves.

You can sprinkle a bead on the center of the flower, decorate it with sparkles or rhinestones or stick a button. I decided to make a flower that would be the most similar to a blooming rose.
 then fold 2 times
If we pasted over before the base of the flower is petals to the center and on a flat surface, now we need to do the opposite.To do this, take a normal petal and wind it, and then add it in 2 times.
