For a fun weekend, we would like to share with you how to create some flowers.

With just a few supplies, you can transform paper into flowers and we know you are going to like it.

This year for Mother’s Day, we’re bringing you some creative ideas.

Let’s have fun making art for our mums!!!

Supplies

  • Coloured pipe cleaners (option 1)
  • Thick paper (option 2)
  • Tape
  • "Washi" tape (option 2)
  • Scissors

How to make it - Option 01

How to make it - Option 02

If you don't have pipe cleaners, you can make everything from scratch

A - Making the stem and filament

1/ Take a thick paper - around 150-200 gsm

2 / Draw a line at the top of the page

You can choose how long you want the stem or the filament to be.

Just move the line down ;-)

3 / Create the stem and the filament.

You can either cut the filament first or divide the paper to create the stem.

TIP: We recommend cutting the paper in 4 equal parts and then cutting the filament.

Don't make it too small, it will be difficult to roll them after.

4 / Plain or with paint

We have created two styles.

  • One white
  • One painted

TIP: Mix and match them to create a more interesting look

If you have decided to go with the painted one, you should use at least two colours.

We used: Yellow and green but feel free to use what you want. It is your bouquet.

5 / Time to roll the stem

To make this part a fun one, we have used a brush.

This will help you make the stem round instead of flat.
