Ingredients
  

  • Coloured craft paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Template

Instructions
 

  • Step (1)Cut 4 pieces of the same coloured craft paper into a square, all 4 cut-outs should be of the same size. Mine was cut into 4 x 4 inches. Take any one of the square papers and use a pencil to trace the 6 petale pattern from the template on it.
  • Step (2)Simply cut out the traced pattern. Similarly cut 3 more patterns.
  • Step (3)This step is really important, cut the 6 petal pieces into 2 parts but each piece should be cut differently. Cut out 1 petal from any two of the 6 petal pieces. Cut out 2 petals from the third pattern and cut the last pattern into half (3 and 3). So, now let’s check, we have 5-1, 5-1, 4-2 and 3-3 petal patterns.
  • Step (4)In this step we’ll have to cut the 2 petal pattern and any one of the 3 petal patterns slightly from their outer edges to make them a bit smaller.
  • Step (5)Use a small round object to create curves on the sides of the cut-out petal patterns. Try to keep the curves neat.
  • Step (6)Time to glue the sides of all the patterns and give them a 3 dimensional look! Simply, Apply glue on one side of the petal patterns and join it with the other side. Join the sides of each pattern one by one.
  • Step (7)Now we have – 2 pieces with 5 petals, 1 with 4 petals, 2 with 3 petals, 1 with 2 petals and 2 with 1 petal. Check and make sure they’re all there!
  • Step (8)Start to join the patterns by gluing one on the top of another one. Try to arrange them nice and neatly to create a beautiful, blooming pattern. The ones with more petals should be on the bottom and the ones with fewer petals should be on the top. Follow this from the bottom – 5-5-4-3-3 small-2-1-1.
  • Step (9)Once done joining all the patterns allow the glue to dry. Cut out some green leaves from green coloured craft papers and glue them with the flower as well.
  • Grab all the colours you have and get crazy crafty!
