With Mother’s Day right around the corner I wanted to share this paper flower craft. I made these with my little girls and they loved them!
You will need
- Patterned scrapbook paper (double sided is best) for 5 circles and a base
- straw or chop stick ( to use as your flower stem)
- Circle punch ( I used the 1 1/4 in circle punch) or something round to trace so you can out out circles
You will need to punch out 5 circles out of patterned paper and one larger circle to glue the petals too. The fun thing about these flowers is you can make them all sizes, big or small.. they are cute all sizes!
Fold you circle in half, then open it back up.
Bring the edge of the circle to the middle line and fold again… do this on both sides.
Do this to all 5 petals… you may find that you have to fold one a little wider at the end so the petals all fit in a nice tight circle.
Glue the 5 petals to the larger circle (or square)
Glue a button or gem into the middle, then tape a straw or chop stick to the back of the flower to create a stem.
This is a thrifty, money saving gift idea that is both fun to make and to give!
