Step by Step Mother's Day Paper Tulips Bouquet Craft

Mother's Day is next Sunday! And we made these Tulips for Grandma and Auntie...
(and some will stay here at home! A little present for myself)

Since there is no much time left, just take a look at the pictures and make a colorful bouquet to be given as a gift!


Step 1 - Make squares using construction paper (4.5 inch X 4.5 inch / 11.5 cm X 11.5 cm)

Step 2 - Fold the paper in 2, then again. Both sides. You will have now 4 X 4 = 16 little squares.

Step 3 - Cut where you see the lines. Then fold in 4 and cut a little in the right corner so that you get a tiny hole once you open it.

You should have something like this.

Step 4 - Put glue only on the squares where you see the arrow.

 Step 5 - Paste it like this, overlapping the other square next to the arrow.

This is what you should have.

Step 6 - To make the stem, have some green construction paper. (6 inch X 3 inch - 22.5cm X 7.5cm)

Step 7 - Use a pencil to roll it lenghtwise.

Step 8 - Put some glue on top. Remember to take out the pencil after you glue it :-)

Step 9 - Cut the stem like this

Step 10 - Put the stem inside the tulip and fold the tip

This is how it looks inside the tulip

Your tulip is ready

Step 11 - For the leaves, you can do anything you like. The leaves are a little bit folded in half.

Step 12 - To make this effect, I pasted the bottom like this

Make a nice Mother's Day card, a vase (this one is made of a Parmesan Cheese Bottle) and done!
