To make these flowers, you will need colored paper and plastic straws for the stems. A dyed and trimmed egg carton will make the ‘flowerbed’ where you could ‘plant’ your flowers.

Each flower was made from several square pieces of paper in different sizes. See how exactly each one is folded and cut. Crease all the folds well to add volume to your flowers.

Make a hole with a screwdriver or another sharp object and push the straw through it. Snip the straw several times at the end to make it wider and keep the petals from falling.

After you make the leaf, cut a fringe at the edge and glue to the stem.
