2. We fold the cut figure in half once and divide along the fold into two parts. Now we take every half and fold twice - just as they did with the napkin. Only from the same format of matter we get two billets for the flower.

3. Why do we cut the square in half before folding? The thing is that paper is densely napkins. To get about the same in the volume of flowers, for their manufacture we use only half of the compressed material format.

5. The decorative basis of the figures is ready. It remains to glue parts to the base part - forms of foam, which must be pre-cut. You can also make them from cardboard boxes.

We glue the flowers to the surface of the numbers using PVA. The order of colors is at your discretion. How it happened to me - look at the photo. After completing the process, let the glue dry dry, forgetting about the numbers at night.

Figures for a birthday with their own hands - decoration for the holiday, which is done simply and allow you to make a change in the standard decor. The main feature of solemn numbers is a bulk, which will give the opportunity to put them on the closet, table, windowsill.

To create the usual office, which has all.

In the tools must be present:

  1. Dense cardboard sheets. The thick box from the TV, the refrigerator or microwave is best suited.
  2. Scriber. You can draw a pencil or ballpoint pen.
  3. Scissors and stationery knife. It is desirable that they be at the same time, because errors when cutting with scissors can be edited by a cutter.
  4. Painting tape. It is made on a paper basis, is well glued and can be broken with his hands.
  5. Polyvinyl chloride glue. Instead of PVA, you can use any "second" glue, instantly gluing surface.
  6. Napkins. The more colors - the better.
  7. Stapler. Allows you to quickly grab the protruding edge when the hands are busy.

The instruction is described below how to make a bulk digit.

General instructions for numbers

General recommendations for all forms of the same. Since the figures suggest the volume, it is required to cut two identical forms for all numbers and connect their end parts. You can draw side protrusions in advance, which will then help consuming two details together, but it is possible to do them separately.

The first figure is drawn on the cardboard lineup, as well as on the downloaded and printed pattern. The second need to circle on the first and also cut.

Separate parts are made on the following recommendations:

  1. Bottom. Flat base, 25x10 size. It can be made two-layer to increase weight and stability.
  2. Side. Rectangular segments of the same width. In numbers of complex shape, like 2 or 6, they must have a small length to provide a rounded form.

Separately selected glue. The most affordable method is PVA. For one-time use, school stationery is suitable. His problem is long drying. In this case, preferably "moment", which dries over a second, and keeps much better.

But even faster methods. It will allow fixing large cardboard segments. It will allow fixing large cardboard segments. In addition, it allows you to smoke joints, and drying occurs in 1 minute.

It is impossible to use ordinary tape. It is dense, has no pore, so the napkins just do not stick. The malarious tape is suitable, since its surface has an adult basis.

Making frame of digits

To assemble any digit, you need to know the step-by-step instructions. For each figure, a separate template is required and the framework of the frame is also seriously different. Below are the manufacturer's templates.

They can be printed on the printer or redraw with preservation of proportions.

Figure 0.

Despite the complexity of this figure, as it represents an oval, make it the easiest way.

Everything happens in a few steps:

  1. Required by the following stencil cut two identical details. Since there are no straight lines in zero, you may need a subsequent edit against the stationery knife.
  2. Now you need to cut the sidewalls. For zero - these are long straight rectangles. You can even make them not from individual segments. First you need to install an inner sidewall, as in the future it will be difficult to fix it.

Now you can go to decorating. The complexity in this figure may occur at the stage of the internal sidewalls. In this case, it is better to use the greasy scotch, which firmly fixes it for a while. Next, it is better to smack the corners using a thermoclaus or "second" to ensure the ultimate strength. The outside is also required to fix with painting tape, as in the photo.

Figure 1.

1 For the birthday, do it yourself most often. Knowing how to make a figure 1, you can arrange holidays for children of many different ages.

First you need to cut the base. In the future, with the side of the longest part, the measurement is removed and one sidewall is cut. After that, it is glued with painting tape.

To the left of the angle to the niza removed the measurement and the sidewall is cut off - fixed with scotch outside. The upper part is installed on a similar instruction and the base is glued.

For the ends, 4 squares are cut. To set the arcuate shape, you can make lateral serifs. On this assembly 1 with their own hands is completed.

Figure 2.

The bulk digit 2 is more complicated by the unit, as it has several complex bends. For this reason, you will have to carefully make a cut.

To secure it seized, you need to cut off the long strip and connect the internal and external bend. The tail is easiest to make direct. In this case, it will not be necessary to edit the product with a knife. Starting stands on the inside, as it is harder to get to her.

Figure 3.

Figure 3 for a birthday one of the most difficult, as it requires more sidewalls. To connect two external semicircles, you need to cut two strips. It is important that they are identical in size.

For riveting, except Scotch, it is worth using thermocons. Under pressure probably dug the sidewalls. Clear is required along the entire length to balance the voltage.

All ends need to be sealed.

Figure 4.

Figure 4 is very similar to one, so it is made similarly. The most difficult moment is an internal triangle that needs to be carefully cut and cry.

The beginning of the assembly occurs similarly. 1. First you need to glue the right side with a long strip. After that, it is necessary to glue the upper part and the base. It is required to sneak into small segments and stuck on the tape. In the future, you need to make the rest of the parts in small pieces and fix with painting scotch. It is best to make a layer of adhesive tape thicker to hold back the complex shape.

Figure 5.

Production of figures 5 is worth starting from the top. It is required to measure the segment and cut from the cardboard the top base. It is desirable to glue it to the tape and glue at the same time that the seam is much stronger.

After that, you need to secure the lower base of the segment of 20 centimeters. For external and inner semicircles, the same rectangular stripes are cut. After that, the ends are closed by four pieces.

Figure 6 and 9

Since these numbers do not differ, they are made by one template. At the bottom of the large circle you need to fix the bottom. The semi-alumina is glipulated. The same is required to do with the inner semicircle.

Segment fix internal oval. The ends are closed by pieces of cardboard. Volumetric figures 6 and 9 are made with their own hands using similar instructions. For the assembly of the nine you need to simply turn the template for 180 degrees.

Number 7.

Seven is even easier than figure 1 for a holiday. The rectangle form is better to do arcuate. The bottom must be strengthened by several layers of cardboard. For curvilinear parts, two stripes will be required and two small segments for the top and bottom of the nose. The end closes with a square.

Figure 8.

The figure is popular for birthday and March 8 do it yourself. It consists of two oval: small and large. After cutting the template, you need to cut two long rectangles. External ovals are connected with each long segment or several small.

Decor numbers

After the figure for the birthday is your hands is ready - it must be decorated. It will be done with the help of napkins. There are several techniques: chrysanthemum, carnation and rose. The beautiful composition is obtained if you use bright napkins of different colors.

No need to buy expensive napkins for decoupage, painting and drawings. Technology of gluing flower coagulation will turn the drawing into porridge. Volumetric numbers of paper - it is best to buy the cheapest napkins for them.

There is a lot of different color on sale and often they are sold in an amount of more than 200 pieces. One package will be enough for one digit. Figures from napkins with their own hands can be decorated with corrugated paper or cardboard.

If you need to use different colors, you can buy several packs of distinctive shades. In case you need to do a few digits - you can already order wipes wholesale. Most likely there will be extra material, but it will be cheaper than buying everything in retail.

Choose a color gamut easily. Enough to take into account:

  1. Favorite color celebrating;
  2. Dominant shade in the interior of the room;
  3. Traditionally, pink tones for girls and blue for boys are used.


  1. To make a large flower, a napkin, without revealing, you need to highlighted in the middle. Small flowers folded fourly.
  2. Scissors need to make petals.

To the digit from the napkins was uniform, it is better to make a pattern in advance. The pattern is cut out of dense cardboard. It is better to make a stationery cutter to prevent uneven cuts. In order for the template to be durable, it can be wrapped in a conventional transparent tape.


  1. The napkin in the sections of the fold is cut into 4 parts;
  2. Of the four squares there is a harmonica;
  3. In the center you need to make a paper thread;
  4. Edges curly;
  5. Petals are sprawling, starting from the top layer.

Figures from napkins with their own hands with chrysanthemum are common. They are simply made and give the figure.

rose flower

  1. The napkin needs to be folded diagonally 4 times;
  2. Buds are folded from the strip;
  3. One side is stitched by thread;
  4. The second side is painted.

After already the beautiful rose, which can be used in the festive decor.

Such beauty can be made with your own hands!

How many napkins need

We buy the simplest napkins. The first question that occurs as they need them? It all depends on what size you will do the digit.

The consumption of napkins depends on the magnitude of the flower is made, the density of the series, i.e. Pumbers of the figure. You can make a probe from the houses of the napkins, calculate the area you need to decorate, and approximately estimate the consumption.

If the plans make a huge number or two, then it is better to buy in bulk. Even if it remains, you will spend less less than you bought piety.

On the color scheme, it is easy to decide, for example:

  • Favorite color your or culprit celebration;
  • the main tone of the interior;
  • Pink tones for a girl, blue for a boy.

They can be monophonic, multicolored. Choose the combined shades together!

Colors of napkins

Basis of numbers

At the first stage, we make the basis of the numbers. Any cardboard box is suitable, for example, packaging from household appliances. If there was nothing at home, you can buy cardboard boxes in a construction hypermarket, or corrugated cardboard in rolls on a cut. Density Choose based on the size of the future digit.

The size of the figure depends on the intentions of its use: if it is a decoration of the table, of course, it is a small size than for a photo shoot.

Large digit 1 from napkins

General instructions for all numbers

Since the figure we have bulk, you need to cut 2 identical numbers and connect their end parts. To cut numbers, you can use different templates and stencils (below will be provided for each digit files for download). Or draw yourself on the cardboard the number you need, cut out and use it as a stencil for the manufacture of the second.

Procedure for assembling Karcasa


The bottom (approximately 20 cm) of the bases do smooth, it will be the bottom so that the finished figure can stand.


The sidewalls of the shapes - rectangles of the same width better made from puff-up cardboard so that they properly lay on the curved parts of the shape.

For the stability of our craft, it is better that the width of the rectangles - the side parts were at least 10 cm. The height of rectangles determine, measuring the parties of the figure. For convenience on carved parts, you can write the dimensions of each segment.


The billets are glued together (for example, the "moment" liner or PVA, as well as a hot gun), painting tape or paper and glue, so it will be easier to attach decor.

On the usual tape flowers from napkins will not be attached!

It is not necessary to glue the greasy tape over the entire surface, cut it on the strips and glipe each separately first to one side of the figure, then to the other. When all sidewalls are glued to one of the workpieces, for strength, skid all the inner seams with tape or glue.

Now we bring the second workpiece on top and attach the sides of Scotch. For strength, this can be done several times, especially joints.

Making framework

Step-by-step framework assembly numbers

So, proceed to the execution of the carcass numbers. The figures consist of rectangles, circles of different diameters, semi-sinks. Since the figure we have volumetric individual elements ends with ends. The ends are of the form of a square. The fulfillment of individual parts for different numbers has its own characteristics, we'll figure it out:

Figure 1.

Figure 1 from napkins

This is the most popular figure! The celebration of the first year of life of the kid is the most long-awaited event. This figure consists only of rectangles, but you need more details than for others.

Figure 1 template:

Figure 1 templateLet's start with the right side rectangle, make measurements from the top of the figure to the bottom (crossbar at the bottom of the numbers). Fix with scotch. We measure the left segment of the rectangle from the curved part to the crossbar. We form the upper part of the crossbar, you will need two rectangles. Handshaw rectangle for the bottom, fasten. We clutch the ends of the figure squares, they need to be 4.The arcuate top on the inside of the cardboard you can make shallow cuts to cardboard became more supplied.

Two salcule

Unlike a single, twice smooth bends, so the cardboard foundation for the figure will make a little more difficult.

Figure 2 templates:

Figure 2 template Figure 2 templateFor decoration seized the numbers, we cut off the long strip, we connect it with the top semi-shadow figure, the same makes the same with the inner. For the execution of the "tail", it is easier to do it directly, we prepare rectangles for the top and for the bottom.3 end squares we complete the manufacture of the shape.

Dealers cut off the rectangles for the upper and lower parts of the crossbar. For the formation of the inner corner, we prepare three sections of the corresponding sizes. It is desirable to drag this figure, for example, a wooden bar for stability. Bar attach to the inside of the bottom in advance.

Many agree that a very important point of holding any holiday is its decoration.

Every holiday is individual, and today we will tell you how to emphasize it.

Needlewomen who like to make the elements of decor and decorations from undergraduates, can take note of the decor of simple napkins.

From napkins usually make flowers on legs, envelopes for appliances on a banquet table.

Decoration of the holiday

Festive trend of recent seasons became numbers from napkins. Such an element can be highlighted a significant date on birthday, or make a large eight in traditional women's day.

Photos of such jewelry often lay out young mothers who made the figure with love with their own hands.

The decoration of this kind will like both an adult and a child. Even before making flowers, you need to decide on the color of the future composition. Speecually and festively look at the numbers of bright colors.

If you plan to decorate a holiday with flowers or balls, it is desirable to pick up a color to another decor.

Inventory for work

In order to make a festive decor, you must first prepare an inventory for future work.

Since for the manufacture of the numbers, we first need to make a frame, you need to stockpense paper. The usual packing cardboard box is best suited for this purpose. We will cut it along the bends so that the material was smooth, and it could be bent in the right places.

The very first assistants in needlework - scissors and knife. Tools must be necessarily sharp and compatible. It is necessary that the contours of the product are smooth, also a good tool will help not spend a lot of effort on trimming cardboard.

In the manufacture of flowers, we will also need a stapler and clips.

To lines for teething were smooth, you need to stock line. The ruler must be long to a meter. The measuring tape will also come in handy in work.

In order to smoke the corners in the right places, you need to have glue and tape. Scotch can be both one-sided and bilateral, depending on how you get used to work.

Well, the latest item for needlework is the napkins themselves. So that the numbers from the napkins were volumetric, and the napkins themselves were well and kept shape, they should be two-layer.

Prepress the required amount of napkin stock is quite difficult, it all depends on the size of the product, so just in case it is worth buying two packs more.

Preparation of carcass

After accurately figured and decided on the size of the future decoration, cut out two pieces of cardboard. On them we need to draw two identical numbers in size.

In order for drawn numbers to be identical, you can draw using measurements on the line. Or there is another option. Draw on one piece of cardboard numbers of the required dimensions, then cut out with scissors and impose as stencil, to the remaining piece of cardboard.

Now the digit can be covered around the contour and also cut with scissors. So, the first components of the future decoration are ready.

Next, we need to make blanks for the lateral part of our carcass. In order to draw the side faces, you need to put two carved numbers to the floor next, in the form in which the figure will look like.

The sewing centimeter needs to be measured the length of the bending side frame from all sides. Depending on the number you can make, a different amount of additional segments you need can get.

For example, if a digit is prepared from the napkins for a year to a child, in it the number of side faces will be less than, for example, in a twice. On average, the width of such a figure is about 10-15 cm, depending on its height.

After measured the necessary parts, again we apply a drawing to the cardboard and gently cut on the contour with scissors. It should be noted that at this stage you can use a soft and already bent cardboard, which served as a frame inside the box. This will make it easy to bend the side parts and easily consolidate them.

With the help of a wide scotch, we fix the side parts first on one side of the numbers, and then we attach the remaining second part of the original cut-off frame. To make the frame easier to glue, wide tape needs to be cut into long strips.

The hardest stage of the work passed and the frame is ready.

Flowers from napkins

Now that the cardboard frame is waiting for its o'clock, start cooking flowers. There will have to work hard, because the colors should be very much.

First we fold our two-layer napkin twice. It turned out a small volumetric square. Now the center of the finished napkin is pierced by the stapler and cut off the square of the corner to get a circle. This looks like a billet for a flower.

You can first make such blanks from the napkins, and only then turn them into flowers. At the fastened napkin, raise the edges, starting from the highest layer. The last bottom layer is left smooth.

To make a bulk digit with lush flowers, strongly squeeze the edge of the flower with your fingers, and then neatly straightening the "petals". Such work may take several hours, but the finished scenery is worth the time spent.

Flowers can be different colors. White color in the composition looks very harmonious with any shade.

Collect numbers

When all parts are ready, you can proceed to the most pleasant handicraft stage - gluing colors. To do this, we apply a drop of glue to the bottom smooth layer of the flower and gently glue to the frame.

To keep the flower well, you need to push it well to a cardboard basis and hold a few seconds. Thus, it is necessary to enclose all the faces of the cardboard billet with flowers.

When the glue is dry, gently spread the flowers from the napkins, and admire the finished work.

Finished numbers may look completely unique if you add a few special decor in them. For example, you can decorate every flower with shiny pebbles, or re-organize the finished scenery of sequins.

You can also make a composition of the balls, shiny threads and the digit itself. Such a decoration will look great in the holiday photosone, the birthday and guests will delight.
