How to Make Curled Paper Spring Flowers
Cut paper into ½ to 1 inch strips, depending on how thick you want each flower. This is where the paper cutter comes in handy. It makes life so much easier to cut up the strips.
Wrap the paper strips around a pencil to create the curls. Using different sized pencils or markers will give you different sized curls.
Also cut thin strips for stems and cut leaf shapes. (You can cut two at once by folding the paper in half and cutting along the seam. Kids love to draw their own leaves and cut them out. It's part of the fun.
Create a flower by gluing the stem and leaves to a plain sheet of paper. Add puddles of clear glue where you want to place the flower curls. Place the curls on top of the glue and press the curls down. Hold them there for a minute while they adhere.
Finish adding as many petals as you want. Allow to dry completely before displaying.
