Let’s Make It
Print and cut out the patterns from the template. Trace the patterns on the selected colored craft papers and cut them out. The template includes one large flower pattern, one medium flower pattern and one small flower pattern, you’ll need to trace and cut out 2 pieces from the yellow craft paper for the large and small pattern; and 2 pieces of the small pattern from the brown craft paper. Also, cut out the spiral pattern from the brown craft paper and the leaf patterns from green craft paper.
Take a flower pattern and create creases on them. First, create crease from the center towards the tip of each petal. Next, create a crease in between each petal and towards the center.
Similarly, create a crease on the rest of the flower patterns (2 large yellow and 2 medium yellow flower patterns).
Create crease on the 2 small brown flower patterns as well. Take the spiral pattern and start rolling it from its outer end. Continue to roll towards the center and once you reach the center glue the roll with the center of the spiral pattern to secure it. Create crease on the leaf cutouts as well.
Place any one of the large sized flower patterns on a flat surface and drop a small amount of glue on its center of it.
Place the other large sized flower pattern on the large flower, making sure that the centers of both flowers match; and also slightly rotate the second pattern so that the tips of the first flower pattern’s petals are visible.
Similarly, glue the medium sized flower patterns one by one on the top of the large ones.
Now glue the 2 small sized flower patterns (these are actually center of the flower); similarly, slightly rotate the second piece on the first piece to make sure that the tips of the first flower’s petals are visible.
And finally, glue the rolled flower on the center and allow the glue to dry.
Attach the leaves at the bottom side of the flower, but make sure that the leaves are visible from the top end and from the sides of the flowers.
