Prepare And Decorate Paper


Start by cutting your cardstock into smaller pieces.  For our flowers, I cut one piece of cardstock into half longways, and then divided each of those long rectangles into thirds.  We got six flowers from each piece of cardstock.  You could make your flowers larger or smaller.

Next, cover the paper with washi tape.  You can either cut or tear the tape-- either way is great fine motor work.

Make some of the tape vertical, some horizontal, and some diagonal.  The pieces can overlap each other.  Be sure to cover all the space!

Once the whole paper is covered, it's time to turn it into a flower!

Draw and Cut Out Flowers

Flip the paper over and sketch a flower shape.  Ours had five simple petals, but you could also do simple circles or more complicated designs.  Don't be afraid of drawing-- you can do it!  Part of what makes these flowers so cute is that they look a little bit wacky!  

If you don't feel comfortable drawing the flowers yourself, you can use this printable flower template.  You'll find one page with a variety of flowers and one page with a basic 5-petal flower repeated.  Just print them and then add your washi tape to the blank side before using the template to cut the flower shape.

Add A Center and Stem

Grab a yellow or orange button to be the center of your flower.  Attach it with a small blob of glue.  Set aside to dry.

Aren't they so pretty?

Once the button has dried, it's time to add a stem!  You can use whatever you think is most appropriate for your child-- I felt comfortable using a bamboo skewer, but you could also use a wooden chopstick or even a craft (popsicle) stick.
