Kreasi Kertas Jagung
Bunga Mawar dari Kertas Jagung Kali ini saya mencoba membuat bunga dari kertas krep, itu loh kertas yang biasanya sering digunakan untuk menghias pesta ultah anak-anak, bahannya mudah diperoleh dan warnanya variatif dan juga mudah dibentuk. Dan bahan-bahan lainnya adalah lem kertas, pita kertas (biasanya untuk membalut batang), alat bantu untuk membentuk kelopak (di sini saya gunakan pen untuk memijat jerawat tetapi boleh juga menggunakan pen alat merajut benang wol atau apa saja yang bentuknya seperti gambar di bawah), kawat untuk batang, dan kertas karton berwarna hijau untuk kelopak. Ini dia gambar bahan dan cara membuatnya.

Alat dan bahan yang digunakan

Buatlah pola seperti gambar di atas, bentuknya seperti daun hati (kiri) dan daun biasa (sebelah kanan). Kelopak yang berbentuk daun hati digunakan untuk bagian luar dan kelopak daun biasa untuk bagian dalam bunga.

Guntinglah masing-masing bentuk sekaligus berlapis agar bentuk lebih seragam

Tarik dengan kedua tangan dengan hati-hati dan pelan-pelan agar tidak sobek bagian tengahnya

Masing-masing ujung atas kelopak dibentuk keriting dengan menggunakan alat pen.

Beri lem kertas pada ujung bagian bawah kelopak

Siapkan kawat batang (saya gunakan kawat bulu), tempelkan kelopak yang sudah diberi lem tadi, tekan-tekan sedikit saja kelopak agar melekat ke batang dengan erat

Lakukan pada semua kelopak dalam terlebih dahulu hingga habis lalu lanjutkan kelopak luar, atur sedemikian rupa sehingga bentuk menyerupai mawar aslinya

Kerajinan Tangan dari Sedotan
Cara membuat Bunga dari Sedotan
Hai.. sekarang saya akan mengulas tentang cara membuat bunga dari sedotan. Barang yang murah ini ternyata juga bisa menghasilkan barang yang menarik loh..
Ada 2 cara untuk membuat Bunga dari Sedotan:
1. Di susun bertumpuk, misalnya mawar, tulip, anggrek, bunga lili, bunga terompet dan bunga bunga kecil, contoh di web ini misalnya bunga sakura.
2. Di jahit dengan kawat, biasanya bunga-bunga sedang dan besar, misalnya krisan, teratai dll.

Pertama-tama untuk menentukan besarnya bunga yang akan di buat, maka sedotannya harus di gunting menjadi beberapa bagian, yang umum adalah: 1 sedotan dibagi menjadi: 3, 4, 5 (4,7 cm), 6 dan 8 bagian yang sama besar.

Pada waktu menggunting (kecuali menjadi 5 bagian), tidak usah di ukur, tapi di lipat saja lalu di gunting lalu di ratakan menjadi sama besar. Sebelum menggunting, sedotannya di pipihkan atau di gepeng kan dulu dengan gunting, caranya dengan menggesek kuat gunting ke sedotan dari ujung ke ujung (he..he..bahasaku ancur boo, bingung nulisnya..).
Gunanya supaya waktu melipatnya menjadi lebih mudah dan hasil guntingan lebih rapi.
Sedotan yang di gunting menjadi 3 bagian, tidak usah di ukur, tapi cukup di lipat saja menjadi 3 bagian yang sama besar lalu di gunting.

Sedotan yang di gunting menjadi 4 bagian, dengan cara melipat 2 sedotan, lalu di gunting dan masing-masing potongannya di lipat lagi menjadi 2 bagian sama besar dan gunting lagi.

Jika ingin membagi sedotan menjadi 5 bagian, saya ukur memakai penggaris dan 1 potongannya di ukur kira-kira 4,7 cm panjangnya.

Sedotan yang di bagi menjadi 6 bagian, pertama-tama lipat 2 sedotan dan gunting menjadi 2 bagian yang sama besar, lalu masing-masing bagian di lipat menjadi 3 bagian dan di gunting lagi

Ada juga bunga yang sedotannya di bagi menjadi 8 bagian, di bagi dan digunting dengan cara yang sama seperti di atas.

Sisir sedotan tidak selalu harus di pakai, sebenarnya tidak ada tehnik khusus untuk memakai sisir sedotan, tapi biasanya hasil akhir setiap orang akan beda, tapi untuk mempergunakannya perlu latihan supaya hasilnya lebih baik

...ubyuhb hu b Under this form of ethics you can't justify an action by showing that it produced good consequences, which is why it's sometimes called 'non-Consequentialist'. The word 'deontological' comes from the Greek word deon, which means 'duty'. Duty-based ethics are usually what people are talking about when they refer to 'the principle of the thing'. Duty-based ethics teaches that some acts are right or wrong because of the sorts of things they are, and people have a duty to act accordingly, regardless of the good or bad consequences that may be produced. Some kinds of action are wrong or right in themselves, regardless of the consequences. Deontologists live in a universe of moral rules, such as: It is wrong to kill innocent people It is wrong to steal It is wrong to tell lies It is right to keep promises Someone who follows Duty-based ethics should do the right thing, even if that produces more harm (or less good) than doing the wrong thing: People have a duty to do the right thing, even if it produces a bad result. So, for example, the philosopher Kant thought that it would be wrong to tell a lie in order to save a friend from a murderer. If we compare Deontologists with Consequentialists we can see that Consequentialists begin by considering what things are good, and identify 'right' actions as the ones that produce the maximum of those good things. Deontologists appear to do it the other way around; they first consider what actions are...

Who We Are and What We Make of Ourselves

...French people were trying to rebuild their destroyed nation. Citizens, leaders, and philosophers were questioning the foundations of society and reexamining the meaning of morality. The horrors of the concentration camps and the atom bomb had just been brought to the surface. Evidence of the human capacity for evil and destruction was everywhere. Jean-Paul Sartre, like many other philosophers at the time, wrote his own essay, Existentialism, in an attempt to answer these moral and ethical questions about human nature and free will. Sartre is correct to say that people are free and must choose their own path in life, but also contradicts himself and fails to appreciate people’s diversity. Sartre begins his essay in a very confusing way. He brings the reader into a very complicated argument over the meaning of Existentialism. He says that the word has lost its meaning and needs to be redefined, “…by this time the word has been so stretched and has taken on so broad a meaning, it no longer means anything at all” (343). Sartre begins clarifying existentialism by focusing on the individual. He says, “Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself” (345). Here Sartre explains how human beings have no pre-determined destiny but are in charge of their own fate, and ultimately choose who they are going to be. Sartre, as an atheist, doesn’t believe there exists a divine being laying out rules for humans to follow. He says, ““…if God does not exist, there is at least one being in......

Aristotles Eudaimonia

...ARISTOTLE'S EUDAIMONIA Eudaimonia stands for happiness in Greek. Aristotle argues that the highest good for human beings is happiness. He insists that every action performed by humans is to pursue happiness. Aristotle also argues that human action is always aimed at some end or good. This "good" may not be viewed as a good action or any good by others, but for the doer of the action ("good"), the activity will be perceived as good and that it will bring a favorable outcome. Aristotle also said that all of our actions resulting in ends or goods form a hierarchy. This hierarchy, incorporates a ladder of things, and this ladder would categorize things according to their importance. And the most important thing would be on top of the ladder, thus being the ultimate end. This ultimate end is what all the actions aim to reach at or achieve. [This end must be self-sufficient, it must be attainable and it must be what we want]1. Therefore, because happiness includes all these, then it must be the highest good. An example of this ladder could be a person working hard to lose weight or trying to stay in shape. The bottom step of the ladder is the person working out in a gym, but why is the person working out? To lose weight or maintain their shape. Why does the person want to lose weight or maintain their shape? To look good physically and to be healthy. Why does the person want to look good or be healthy? To be attractive and to lead a stress-less and a comfortable life. And why......

Freedom

...Freedom People today agree that freedom is a very important and that it should be part of their lives, but what does it mean to have freedom? Some would say it is the ability to do whatever you want as long as you do not break the law or hurt someone else, but others would say it is being able to do whatever you please without having any consequences. Many authors in the past wrote about this topic and what their definition of freedom was. Their writings inspired many people to think what freedom really meant and take action for freedom. A few of these authors were John Winthrop, Benjamin Franklin, and Ralph Emerson. John Winthrop categorized freedom into two categories, Natural Liberty and Civil Liberty. Benjamin Franklin was more interested in the economic side of freedom by being able to choose any job to become financially successful and having to do things for himself. Ralph Emerson’s definition of freedom was for people to think for themselves and do what they think is right. Just to worry about themselves instead of worrying about other people’s opinion and what others are doing. They all had different views of freedom and what it means to be free, but deep down they were similar in which people want the freedom to choose and be who they want to be without being punished or bound. John Winthrop’s definition of Natural Liberty is being able to do whatever people wanted and just relying on their instincts just like an animal would. “By this, man, as he stands in......

Are Homosexuals Moral or Immoral?

...what is right and wrong in human behavior; based on what you think is right and good. So this suggests that morality is both subjective and objective just like values. According to an article I’ve read on the internet, homosexuality is not immoral. There were major ethnical theories presented, but I will focus on just one theory, which is utilitarianism. Utilitarianism states that morality should be guided by the results of an action. If an action leads to good results, then it is a good act, but if an action leads to bad results, then it is a bad act. This theory will tell us that homosexuality will be morally right if its consequences lead to happiness, and wrong if it ends in unhappiness. Now, the question is this: does being homosexual lead to happiness or pain? Before I answer that question, let me first discuss the possible causes of homosexuality. According to Craig Biddle, an author of books regarding morality and principles, there are three elements that causes homosexuality. Two of which are biological and environmental. Science is still inconclusive what makes some people homosexual, but it is believed that there some genes that makes them such. Most scientists would agree that being gay is not a choice. Years of research suggest that people can't change their sexual orientation because they want to, and that trying can cause mental anguish. What's more, some studies suggest that being gay may have a genetic or biological basis. [Ghose, 2015] If trying to change......

Bumiess Ethics

...to better understand what is considered “good,” it is necessary to compare what the ethical theories of utilitarianism, Kantian deontology, and the ethics of care conclude about how one acts morally, and how these different approaches exist as a defense to the concept of our having natural human rights. Deontology is an ethical approach wherein the morality of actions is based on the motives or intentions behind the action, rather than its actual consequences. This philosophy is based around duty and principle, dealing with human rights. Immanuel Kant believed that, as human beings, we have an obligation to adhere to “the good,” in an unconditional sense. For an action to be deemed right, it must be intrinsically good, and thus should not be altered due to someone perceiving it as otherwise, or the consequence of that good act causing harm to someone or something unintentionally. Kantian deontology says that the intent to do right is what matters, as, in acting according, one is upholding the values of good. Kant argues that the effect of a well-intended action in itself cannot be the motivator for the act, as just as a right choice can lead to tangible positive consequences, there is nothing to stop a wrongfully minded act from somehow paving the way for something good. Kant’s philosophy asks one to consider the potential outcome if every action they took became a universal law. This is his categorical imperative. The practice of good intention becomes an unwavering thing,......

What are you willing to sacrafice to be a good student. In life as I went through the education system, I realized that there were three kinds of students. There were the good students, the average students and the bad students. Many people strive to be in the category of the good student, many settle for the category of the average student and some just don’t care so they end up being placed in the category of the bad student. I find that the most important of those categories is the category of the good student.

Leadership

...What are the components of good leadership? To be a good leader one must have all the components of a good leader; but what makes a good leader? Socrates in “The Republic” and Machiavelli in “The Prince” both discuss what it takes to make a good leader. One interesting topic discussed by them is the corruption of the people in charge and whether or not in affects the leadership role in a negative or positive way. Another determining factor in leadership skill is whether a woman would be a good leader and whether it matters that the image of a man in charge is what best for society or can women do just as much as men can based on their natural skills. Machiavelli speaks about how “Fortune is a woman” and men must take advantage before they get taken advantage of. One of the other components that make a good leader with good leadership skills is deception and whether to have it or not. Deception in leaders can either be helpful or hurtful to whomever is in charge. While Machiavelli has the perspective of a person being a leader that will do anything by any means necessary to stay in charge is how the Prince should run what he is in charge of. Socrates believes in doing what is right by the people. From what Socrates speaks about, he doesn’t feel like people should be corrupt in being a leader. Justice plays a big role in leadership in his opinion which is why he tries to find out from a few people what their definition of justice is and does a good job in trying to get......

Presently people of Australia became more concerned about this and decided to cut back the cost which will help to save the environment. However many economist thinks that it might have detrimental effect on the economic well-being. Consumerism refers to consume any good with higher rate.

The End of Faith V Jedi Order

...A Science of Good and Evil and compare his views against the views of a Jedi. In this chapter Harris exposes his beliefs on what he considers to be good and evil, how they can be achieved, and how they should be dealt with. Harris breaks this chapter up into sections where he gets into detail on the aspects of determining good and evil. Harris and the Jedi have very little in common when it comes to their views, and that is obvious after a comparison of the two. Sam Harris begins this chapter with an introduction to an explanation of what good and evil is and each can be achieved. In our world today there are many different understandings of what is good or evil depending on what particular group of human beings you belong to. Among some groups of people, certain activities that bring people happiness are frowned upon by different groups of people. What makes these groups of people right or wrong in their understanding of good and evil? Harris understands the act of being evil or good as a result of causing either happiness or suffering. He states that everyone has an ethical responsibility, which becomes present as you find yourself in a position that can determine ones happiness or suffering. To develop an understanding of what is ethically right or wrong you should do it based on the views of the present, not views from the past or future. Contrary to popular belief in our world, Harris believes religion is not necessary, especially in the sense of it being the source......

The Crucible

...Critical Lens Someone once said “Evil triumphs when good men do nothing” meaning that when a good person decides to do nothing evil will succeed. For example if someone was getting bullied and an onlooker decide to do nothing than evil would prosper. This quote id false because there in no way to know who is “good” and who is “bad” due to everyone having a different understanding of what is good and what is bad. Some people believe that those who don’t go to church are bad but in reality many people who don’t go to church have better morals than those who do go to church yet the fact they don’t makes them seem bad. Another way this quote is false is that if someone were truly “good” then they wouldn’t stand around and watch as evil prospered. One piece of literature that proves this quote true is The Crucible by Arthur Miller through his use of characterization and conflict. As stated above the quote “Evil Triumphs when good men do nothing” is false due to the elusive from in which “good men” is used. In The Crucible Arthur Millers’ use of characterization proves this quote false. The Crucible is a play about the domino affect which wild accusations about witchcraft caused in a small religious town known as Salem’s Village. In The Crucible Arthur Miller shows that people are ignorant and only care about their well being. Arthur Miller shows this through the characteristics of Parris, Abigail, Marry Warren, and the town’s people. The false accusations all started when......
