Sometimes paper flowers are better than real ones because they last longer and do not need maintenance. They are also great decorations for house parties. Their colours are more solid and brighter so people are sure to notice them.
This beautiful paper flower project best imitates kans grass/Saccharum spontaneum. You can use craft paper or make customised ones for more unique colours. It’s very easy to do, so have fun!

You’ll need these materials:
- Various coloured papers
And this tool:
First, you have to cut your paper into at least 2 inches wide strips with a length of your choice. In this example, the paper is 2 x 8 inches.
Create a thin fold on one side of the longer edges. Fold the paper in half to save time cutting to make the strips. Cut horizontal strips but not all the way through, as seen in the picture.
Make sure your strips are all equal in thickness as possible. The thinner the strips the prettier the flowers will look.
Starting from the very end, roll the strips to make swirls up until the vertical fold.
Take your time and make sure your swirls are properly done as this is the most important step :)
