rolled paper flowers

This project is intended for children age 7+. This easy and adorable craft can be done with only three simple items. Make a single flower or an entire bouquet!
Step 1

Cut four sheets of construction paper into approximately ½" [1.27cm] strips. Designate one color for stems, one for petals and one for the center of the flower. You’ll need approximately 5-7 strips for your petals, one for your center and three for the stem.

Step 2

Starting with your petals, roll each strip and secure the end with a dab of glue. Pinch the glued spot between your fingers for about 30 seconds, until secure. Don’t worry about making the curls all the same size. Do the same with the center.

Step 3

For the stem, partially curl 2 of your strips. They do not need to be perfect circles like the last step. Leave the last of the three strips uncurled.

Step 4

When your curls are finished, lay them out in the shape of a flower. The center of the flower should be a circle, with the pedals surrounding it. The uncurled stem should be coming out of the bottom. Attach the other 2 stem curls to its bottom.

Step 5

Start gluing the different strips together. Take time again to pinch the 2 pieces together until the glue sets.
