How To Make Paper flowers & Keep The Kids Busy Too!
How to Make Paper Flowers
Do you remember ‘Golden Hands’ magazines? My Nan used to have them, I always loved the back page, it had great project ideas for children. Imagine the grin on my face when I spotted this at a boot fair early one Sunday morning! On the back was the most amazing cut and stick project how to make paper flowers using just paper and Sellotape.
I thought now would be a perfect time to share this child friendly project.
You will need:
Coloured paper (I used A4 size) scissors, ruler, pencil, Sellotape, green flower canes (any diy store)
The Details: Instructions on how to make pretty paper flowers.
1: Cut your yellow paper into strips of approx. 2 inches wide, fold each strip along its length and cut one edge to make a fringe. I curled my fringes too
2: Coil the fringed strip around the top of the cane and fasten with Sellotape.
3: Choosing a complimentary colour from the coloured paper, (this piece will be the smaller central petals) cut out a small square, fold this in half twice and then into a triangle.
4: Draw a petal shape and cut out. Snip a tiny bit off at the base. If desired curl the petals a little.
5: Push the cane through the centre of the circle of petals, fasten at the top fixing to the fringed piece with a small piece of Sellotape.
6 For your larger petals, using two or three sheets of white paper, cut out a larger square fold and cut as before. Fix to top of stick and arrange as desired before sticking down with Sellotape.
7: Use a sheet of green paper, for the under leaves. Draw a leaf shape then fold cut and stick in the same way.
I think they look fun, funky and a little bit retro?ldj
NOTE: You can vary your designs by layering colours and shortening the canes. Or by cutting out different shaped petals. Its up to you!
