What you’ll need
- Coloured paper
- White paper or card
*Adult supervision required
Draw a flower with three petals on a piece of thick coloured paper, and then carefully cut out the shape you have drawn.
Fold down the middle of each petal neatly along the dotted lines, as shown here.
Then, make another fold between each petal to make a flower shape, like this.
Fold a long piece of green paper in half and cut a thin leaf shape against the fold. Remeber to keep the paper folded as you cut.
Cut a stem from green paper. Then, from the orange paper, cut three small strips with points at one end to make the flower’s stamens.
Fold a sheet of white A4 paper or card in half. Glue on your stem, leaf, and stamens, then stick the flower on top.
And there you are – all done!
Why not try…
Adding flowers to create a meadow effect, or using a different coloured background to give greater depth?
