Here’s a wonderful craft exercise especially for the little (and not so little) girls! It’s perfect for rainy days as it will keep kids involved for hours! They look just like real roses, don’t they? But they’re very easy to make. Now get your materials ready, and have lots of paper on hand! We’re sure you’ll enjoy making more than enough for a bouquet! ?
- Craft Paper
- Round object – such as a small paint brush
You will need 4 pieces of craft paper of the same size. I used 4 X 4 inches craft papers.
Fold the paper into half and then into even thirds.
You can draw the pattern of the petal on the folded paper or you can simply cut the top of the folded paper into an arch shape. Similarly cut 3 more as you’ll need 4 of these. This way you’ll get 6 petals on each paper.
Again cut the 6 petaled papers as shown in the picture.
Use the small paint brush or any small round object to create curves on the petals.
Apply glue on one side of the petaled papers and join it with the other side.
Now we have – 2 pieces with 5 petals, 1 with 4 petals, 2 with 3 petals, 1 with 2 petals and 2 with 1 petal.
Start gluing the pieces (petaled papers), one on the top of the other one. Try to arrange them nicely to create a beautiful pattern. The ones with more petals should be on the bottom and the ones with fewer petals should be on the top.
There you have it!
Now let your imagination work and create more flowers with different shapes of petals! And while you’re at it, why don’t you share your creation with us? ?
