Each tube will need the bottom and the top, it needs to cut slices of the required diameter.
To those who are “top” glue “tongue of flame.” And to those who will be bottomed, here are pasted strips of paper. Actually, stick to the bottom of the tube will be just with them. Once glued bedplate, let the glue dry. Then fill the tube with gifts – be it sweets, Towelie, socks, handkerchiefs, etc. .

Festive cream cake from corrugated paper

Cake corrugate paper 1

There are usually tube glued with a glue gun. But we’ll use two common types of glue: PVA glue and pencil. PVA has to be thick enough, it is better in a bottle with a spout, and a glue stick – fresh. The primary tool for this technique are the large needles with the limiter at the end. For this work, a pair of spokes used 4.5 mm thick, 6 mm, 8 mm.

To make the cake need a frame-basis. You can use a ready-made cardboard box, or you can make your own out of construction paper or cardboard. Draw two circles from a single center with a radius of 10 cm and 11.5 cm. Cut out on the outside line. Make teeth from the edge to the inside line.

Do the side edges of the lower layer. The length of the lower layer of the strip -. 62.8 cm, height 10 cm Cut out a strip with a margin for gluing or pasting it from several bands.
Bend all the teeth on one side. Gluing the side edge. Glue the circle. You can stick teeth, but it is much easier – teeth out. You can put a circle on the table, put glue inside the cylinder and cloves. Then flip. Perform double design surface. Cut off from the roll bandwidth of 15 cm. Lay down and cut it in half, you get two rectangles of 15 × 25 cm. To outline the middle folding line. Take spokes 8 mm thick (and other possible). Put the needle on the edge of the strip (limiter should hang off the table) and tightly wound paper. Is wound up to the marked line of the middle. On the other hand to wind the paper for the second needle. When you wrap the first two spokes must hold hands. Put the spokes vertically on the guides. Take the fingers of the lower part of the paper. Small movement downward pulls together the paper until it is all not the spokes. This should be done in small areas, moving his fingers. Here is the paper when it is all compressed. Now you can remove it from the spokes. The result was a double. Make enough of these different colors.
To glue the tube to the lower layer, first, try on its height. Drag to the desired length, densely smash underside PVA tube, and press firmly to the base.
Make decorative ornaments in the form of white. Draw a semi-oval 12 cm on thick paper, 4 cm wide. It is best to make a template to draw such figures 6. Glue on the other side of the strip of white crepe paper. Gluing only glue stick. Cut out 6 pieces. Twist 6 double white tubes of the rectangles 13 × 25 cm on the spokes 6 mm. Bend the tube, slightly cutting into the middle and flattened ends. Glue the tube on the edge of the workpiece. Make 6 parts. Glue parts, slightly bent them along the top edge. Twist the double white tubes on the needles of 8 mm. Obkleyte of the top surface of seam side up. Make two concentric circles. Now you can make roses. This will require single. Take the strip (along with the lines of corrugation) 7 × 25-30 cm. Brush the edge of the glue stick. Put the needle on the opposite side. Screw needle on paper. Put the needle vertically, put your fingers on the bonding position (the seam did not disperse. Compresses the paper slowly from top to bottom. Squeeze all of the paper to the end. Take off with the single needle To make rosettes, flattened end of the tube, smash PVA glue and twist the spiral, trying to maintain the shape of the tube. The tip again flattened and Con inside. The result was a spiral rosette. In the same way as the bottom, make the top layer of the cake. First Draw two circles with radii of 5 cm and 6.5 cm. Do cloves. size 6 × 31.5 cm (do not forget to stock on bonding) Cut out the tape side edge. Gluing basis. Screw the tubes of the rectangles 13 × 25 cm Spokes take thinner – 6mm. Each cut the tube in half to their height to get a 6 cm. Obkleyte side edges. Twist two double green tube and a few single green. Glue on top around the edges of the double tube, and then helically glued single, until it fills the entire plane. Glue the top layer in the middle of the bottom layer. The remaining space is filled double tubes on the needles 6 mm. To make the lily, twist the three double rolls of strips of 12 × 25 cm on the spokes of 4.5 mm. Cut each in half. Stretch up to 7 cm. A little Unfold the center. Flatten the ends of the right upright and left – horizontally. Gluing right ends, and the left stick together put it on each other. Bend the tab, screwing it on his finger. Pruning tip, making it sharpened. Make 6 petals. To take stamens strips 3,5 × 9 cm. Screw the single tube to 4.5 cm needle. Squeeze a small area. Take off the tube and screw in the flagellum of the remaining, non-compressed portion. Take a few stamens. Gluing bundle of stamens, glue around three petals, and then three more. Outside the petals can be pasted a thin strip of corrugated paper. The result was a flower. Do the leaves of thin single tubes. Glue the leaves and rosettes. Do the lights of thin tubes. Insert the sharp end of the skewer. Put a straw, rolled out of white paper pasted yellow crepe paper. Strengthen the candles on a cake. Dear guests welcome to all the festive tea party!
