Paper Flower Bouquet
Make for Mother's Day
This paper flower
bouquet is an easy craft for children to make as a gift for Mother's
My child's preschool made these this year, and the
children had fun practicing their cutting and gluing skills!
The flowers look really pretty sitting on your window sill or
on the mantle. These paper flower bouquets can be made in two
For the larger bouquet, you need a larger
piece of paper and a larger disposable cup. The smaller
bouquet can be made using a standard 8.5"x 11" paper and a dixie cup.
Here are several flower bouquets in
my daughter's preschool room:
Things Needed For Large
Bouquet (pictured in the two photos above):
Needed For Smaller Bouquet (shown below in some of the step by step
inch tall disposable plastic cup
(colored ones look best!)
- 15" x 12.5" large piece
green construction paper or card stock.
x 11" standard size piece of green
construction paper or card stock.
- 3 inch tall
disposable Dixie cup
tissue paper (below I used
yellow) cut into 1 inch squares
Begin the paper flower bouquet by folding the green paper in
2. Using a ruler, draw a
horizontal line, one inch up from
the bottom edge. Above this, measure off vertical strips one
inch in width. See the photos below for help.
Using the scissors, cut on the vertical lines. Stop
when you reach the horizontal line so you don't cut all the way
through. When you are finished, unfold the paper.
Next, you are going to begin to fold the paper back in half
again. However, do not bring the paper to meet the bottom
edge, but instead bring it one inch up from the bottom edge, as shown.
Use a stapler to secure this at each edge and in the middle.
This offset causes the ends of the "leaves" to curve outward.
Next, begin to roll the paper so the leaves are turning
outward, and secure the tube with a staple.
6. Place the bouquet in the cup, and staple it to the side of
the cup to secure.
