Paper flower for kids: Standing Paper Flowers tutorial

Making flower, Paper crafts  |  September 12th 2011  |  0 Comment

Mother’s Day Craft

Materials:
paper
scissors
clear tape
wire. (I used 18″ floral stem wire, which you can find in the floral section of craft stores. That way you don’t need to cut the wire. It’s already a perfect length.)
Instructions:
1- Cut out 6 circles using colorful pieces of paper. (My circles were about 3 inches in diameter, but you may make whatever size you’d like. The circles do not need to be perfect.)
2 – Take your piece of stem wire and using your fingers, bend a circle (about 4 inches in diameter) at one end for the base. Make the wire flat against the bottom through the middle of the circle.
3 – Then bend it straight up at the middle to make the stem of the flower stand upright.
4 – Fold 5 of the paper circles in half, then cut a narrow notch into the side of each fold.
5 – Take the remaining paper circle, and attach it to the top of the wire stem with one piece of clear tape. This will be the center of the flower.
6 – Now align the notch of each folded circle and simply slide them one by one onto the center circle. Do any last little bends on the base so the flower will stand up firmly. Done!
