1) Construction paper (or any hard paper) - 1 sheet (9" x 12").
2) A pair of scissors.
1) Hold the sheet of paper lengthwise. Fold it in half.
2) Using your pencil, draw a faint line 1" from the open edge across the width of the paper.
3) Use your scissors to cut 1/2" strips from the closed (folded) edge up to the line.
4) Fold the two uncut edges together. Roll the paper together lengthwise. A flower-like structure will begin to take shape.
5) Secure the paper together with glue, tape or staples.
Make more flowers in a similar manner and turn them into a bouquet - one that will never lose its freshness.
1) Tissue paper - 1 medium sheet.
2) Rubber bands.
3) A pair of scissors.
1) Cut the tissue paper into 5 or 6 square pieces, or more if you want to increase the thickness of your flower.
2) Layer all sheets together one above the other.
3) Now fold the square sheets in a wavy pattern (like an accordion or a fan).
4) When you have finished, fasten them all by twisting a rubber band in the middle.
5) Separate each sheet one by one. Work from left to right, bringing all sheets to the middle until you have finished.
6) Trim the sheets lengthwise if you want the flowers to be smaller.
NOTE: You can give your flower different shapes by just trimming the tips of the petals in different ways (rounded, triangular, pointed, wavy etc..)
