Crafts For Kids: How To Make Glossy Paper Flowers

Crafts for kids: How to make glossy paper flowers

To celebrate the release of the new Disney film The Odd Life of Timothy Green (in UK cinemas April 5, 2013), we have fun craft ideas from

To make glossy paper flower you will need:

Glossy Paper Flowers


Old magazines

Glue stick

Paper fastener

What to do:

1. To make a bloom, cut two to four flower shapes in various sizes and patterns, as shown.

Ours measure 1 1/4 to 5 1/2 inches.

Tip:For a symmetrical flower like the ones pictured, trace a circle onto a magazine page and cut it out (we used an old CD as a template). Fold the circle in half several times, as you would a paper snowflake, then cut the folded paper into the desired petal shape, making sure you don't cut through the pointed tip.

2. Roll a single magazine page into a slim tube for a stem and secure it using a glue stick.

3. Stack the floral shapes and secure them to the top of the stem with a paper fastener. Pinch or fold the edges of the petals to add dimension.
