Easy Paper Flower


Made these paper flowers the other day. It is quick and easy to make. You can use it a variety of ways, in cards or maybe make a bunch to use in a garland just like I used it.





You'll need:
--------------
- Paper
-Staple
- Glue

Steps:
-------
1. Take a rectangle piece of paper and accordion fold it lengthwise.
After you have accordion folded the paper, your folded paper should look like this.


2. Fold the length of the paper in half.


3. Fold the paper in half again and open it up to mark the center of the length of paper. Staple at the center mark



4. Cut out the edges like the picture below.

5. Spread out the paper


6. Put a dab of glue to stick the petals together to make a flower shape.





The design of the flower is a bit different at the front and back, but both sides look good and you could use either side.
