Paper Flower Tutorial 1

These flowers look like they’re difficult to make but they’re not!  I made them while watching TV.  This would be a great project for older kids to do.  Once you know how to make the basic fold, you just repeat it five times to make a whole flower.  To do this project you will need paper, invisible or matte tape (not glossy) and wood skewers.

1.  Start with a square piece of paper and fold it in half diagonally.

5.  Unfold.  With one hand, hold the triangle closed.  With the other hand refold on the existing fold lines.  Repeat for the opposite side.

9.  Roll and tape closed.  This is the first petal for your flower.  You will need to do this four more times to make a total of five petals.

10. Now tape each petal together.  Keep taping each petal together until you have a five petal flower.  It’s best to use invisible or matte tape so you won’t be able to see it.  Glossy tape will show and won’t look as nice.

You can stop at one flower or make a whole bouquet.  You can also change the size of the flower by using different sizes of paper.  Small squares of paper will make small flowers and large squares of paper will make large flowers.  You can also tape several flowers together to make a cluster or ball that you can hang.
