Grab your coloured construction papers and choose the colours you want your flowers to be!
Use the compass to make a perfect circle. Repeat these steps for every colour of flower you make.
Cut out the circle for every colour.
Fold each circle into fours.
Then fold the folded piece in half.
Draw a zigzag shape on the opened side of the piece. Or you can use the template to draw the shape.
Cut along the zigzag mark as best as you can, this will make the shape of the flower.
Make some vertical cuts on the piece from the opened top side. Don’t cut all the way through.
Open up the fold to reveal a beautiful circle revealing a myriad of thin petals.
Make a cut on the circle piece. Don’t cut all the way through, just until there is a space in the bottom center.
Start rolling the paper up from the cut area.
After rolling it all the way you’ll get a cone, glue the end to secure it.
Cut out a green piece of paper out of construction paper to make a stem. Make it the length that you want!
Roll the paper diagonally starting from any corner.
After rolling it all the way you’ll get a stick shape, glue it and secure it.
Apply glue on the top of the stick.
Then glue the flowers bottom on the glue area, and let it dry.
Cut out two leaves shapes from the TEMPLATE.
Glue the leaves on the stick and you’re done!
