Glossy Paper Flowers

These little flowers are for the littlest fingers to make,   BUT

I am certain that they will need some help from an adult along the way.

Glossy Paper

Far from the garden variety, these blossoms stem from magazine pages.

They're easy to make and leave lots of room for inspired creativity.

  • Scissors
  • Old magazines
  • Glue stick
  • Paper fasteners
  1. To make a bloom, cut two to four flower shapes in various sizes and patterns, as shown. Ours measure 1 1/4 to 5 1/2 inches. 

  2. Tip: For a similar flower like the ones pictured, trace a circle onto a magazine page and cut it out (we used an old CD as a template).

  3. Fold the circle in half several times, as you would a paper snowflake, then cut the folded paper into the desired petal shape, making sure you don't cut through the pointed tip.

  4. Roll a single magazine page into a slim tube for a stem and secure it using a glue stick.

  5. Stack the floral shapes and secure them to the top of the stem with a paper fastener. Pinch or fold the edges of the petals to add dimension.
