April Showers Bring May Flowers

Inspiration:

Running With Glitter – Guest Blogger live.love.photograph

Supplies:

Paper

Scissors (I used a paper cutter)

Glue Stick

Hot Glue Gun

Button & Twine (or some decoration for the center of the flower)

1.  Cut two strips of paper.  I cut my strips 2-1/2″ x 12″.  This makes a very large flower!

2.  Accordion fold the strips of paper.

3.  Glue the two strips of paper together to form a circle.

4.  Pinch one side together and push down to create the pinwheel.

5.  Apply a generous drop of hot glue to the center.  Hold it down until it dries.

6.  Glue the button to the center.

7.  You now have a beautiful paper flower to make into a bouquet or glue on to a pretty card.

    That turned out really pretty! It looks easy enough that even some of my kids at school could make it, too! Very cool!

    Blogger won’t even let me into the reader now, so I guess it’s a good thing we’re busy with nursing home visits tonight, because it looks like I’m not getting to visit blogs!

      I thought it was easy and fun! You can test it out. You’ll have a better idea about how little hands function. If the smaller accordion folds make it too “springy,” you could try larger folds and that might make it more manageable.
