Intro: How to Make a Giant Flower From Yoga Mats
This Instructional video it's all about taking a small project and bringing it up to scale.
You can find many tutorials on how to make a paper flower. But once you make it bigger the paper will become unstable.
I used some Yoga mats that are thicker and a little more rigid.
This is only one example of flower, but using the same materials and changing the color scheme, you can make various types of flowers.
You will need:
- template for 3 different petal sizes (optional: you can have only one size depending on the model)
- scissors (I used a laser cutter but you can get away with scissors or a cutter)
- hot glue gun
- paint (2 or 3 colors depending on the model)
- yoga mats (I used 3 mats 180cm x 50 cm for one flower)
Most of all you will need lots and lots of patience.
You should have all the necessary information in the video.
