You will also need card stock to print the template on.
These paper flower crafts are quick and simple. For younger kids, I suggest making the daisy. The flower made of hearts is a little bit more difficult.
First, cut out the templates. After cutting, pinch each petal to create a slight fold stemming from the center of the flower.
Continue punching until all petals are slightly folded.
Glue the two together at the center, be sure to slightly stagger the petals.
Finish off by adding the center of the flower, leaves and a stem.
This project is also great if you have students write sweet little notes on each petal!
Heart shaped petal flowers:
Begin by gluing the bottom of the hearts to the flower's center circle.
Continue gluing until hearts are evenly spaced. Seven hearts should fill the circle.
Allow time for the glue to dry. It is also helpful to glue a second circle to the back to reinforce the petals.
After the glue has dried, gently pinch the hearts to create a fold.
Repeat these steps once more with a second set of hearts. When you are finished, glue both sets of hearts together. The backs of each set should face eachother.
Finish the design with a stem and leaves!
