In our Home school art project this week we made a paper flower and I am going to show you step by step how to do it

This was my daughter who started making these paper flowers, I seriously don't know where she got the idea, when I asked her, she said she just thought of it - one thing I definitely know is that she did not get it on the internet, because they are not allowed to use the internet yet.

Paper flower step 1

Step 1: Fold the paper in half and half again for the first step of making the paper flower

How to make your paper flower:

Step 1:

Fold the paper (this is the color you want to be the main color of your flower, because you are going to cut your petals out here) in half and half again, so now you have four sides.

Step 3: cut our little teardrops

Cut out 2 x big teardrop shapes, but they must end with a square at the bottom. (with the way the paper is folded, you will have 8 petals now)

Cut small teardrop shapes from the same color, if you want.
