You’ll also need some basic craft supplies like:
- Black pen
Start by printing out the flower bouquet template and cutting out all the pieces. Trace them onto your colored paper and cut them out, like shown below.
Take the big square of craft paper and fold it diagonally in half. Make sure the crease is sharp, so keep flattening it with your fingers or a ruler.
Now fold the paper diagonally in half again. Smooth it out to create a sharp crease.
Take the top flap of the paper and fold it backward, aligning the edge with the folded crease. Flatten the fold with a ruler or your fingers, like shown below.
Repeat the step above with the other top flap of the paper. You will now have a square piece of paper that is divided into four equal triangles.
Take the petal shape template provided and cut out the shape. Hold the template against the folded paper, and use a pencil to trace around it. Repeat this process to make as many petals as you need.
Once you have traced around the template, use scissors to cut out the petal shapes from the paper. Open it up, and you will have one big beautiful flower.
Continue by making two more flowers, each slightly smaller than the last. Follow the above steps to make them.
Now, take a thin pencil or a paintbrush and add some detailing to the petals. Roll up the edges to create a more realistic look!
Fold the bouquet wrapping paper (use the template provided) according to the lines given. Make sure you fold the creases sharply, so everything looks neat in the end.
Glue the wrapping paper onto the cardstock paper.
Glue the three flower stems onto the wrapping paper. Make sure everything is aligned properly and looking neat!
Bring the two sides of the wrapper inwards and glue them together. Now, the wrapper should hold the flower stems securely.
Glue the largest flower onto the middle stem. Then glue the other two flowers onto the remaining stems.
Use the provided yellow circular pieces and glue them onto the center of the flowers.
Finally! Glue your two hands onto the sides of the flower bouquet, and you’re done!
You can make the flowers, the hands and the wrapping paper any colors you like! So you can use the receiver’s favorite colors or pick some fun colors you like.
