That is the time of yr I begin getting antsy. I’m prepared for some flowers and inexperienced and I’m achieved with the unhappy brown grass that’s wilting and dying like my soul.
However we nonetheless have a number of months right here, and I need to discover my colorful flower repair elsewhere. Fortuitously, the children and I can create our personal fairly simply. I’ve a packet of scrapbook paper I purchased, like, two years in the past, and I pull it out on occasion for tasks. This one is ideal for it!
We made two totally different sorts of flowers, however each of them used this template. Nothing fancy. You could possibly in all probability freehand the identical factor your self, however in order for you, you possibly can print mine out to make use of as a information.
The primary flower we made was the simplest. My kindergartner was in a position to make her personal, and had numerous enjoyable making an attempt totally different colours and patterns for her flowers.
- four items of scrapbook paper in several patterns
- pen (for tracing)
Minimize out 5 of every of the three petal sizes and 1 circle for the center. Lay the big petals in order that their ends are barely overlapping and glue in place. Lay the center sized petals in between the bigger ones and glue. Then place the smaller petals and glue them as properly. End by gluing your circle within the center. Let dry.
I additionally made this flower, however I used a sizzling glue gun so it’s probably not appropriate for smaller youngsters to try. Start by chopping 10 of the center sized petals out, and one giant circle for the center.
Take one petal and pinch on the finish. Put a dot of glue so it retains its form.
When you could have all 10 petals glued, glue the edges of every paper flower to one another like this.
So now you could have that yucky, ugly center half left once you’re completed. And naturally we do the one smart factor now and conceal it by gluing a large circle excessive.
That’s it! We glued our flowers to papers for playing cards, however you might additionally connect them to popsicle sticks or pipe cleaners to make somewhat bouquet.
