How to make paper flowers
#1 Flower with dot
Cut circles out of a sheet in a given colour.
Put one circle aside and fold others in two
Put some glue in the middle of the circle that you put aside and stick the first petal.
Now open the first petal and glue another one onto it.
Do the same with the next ones.
Finally, in the middle of the flower glue (hot glue works best) a small circle in different colour.
#2 3-D flower
Fold a piece of paper in four.
Spread a circle. Spread the glue along the edges.
Glue two edges together without folding the paper in between.
Do the same with the next edge until you see something like this.
Do the same with other circles and glue them together.
With 5 petals you will get a flower like this.
#3 Flower of magazine paper
Fold a page of magazine vertically in two. Then fold the longer edges outwards.
Once you managed to do it, now cut it every few millimetres on the side the edges are folded.

Slowly roll the page onto the stick creating a flower. Secure the end with adhesive tape.
Wrap the stick with green paper and that’s it!
