  • 1.

    There are lots of ways to make paper flowers. Here’s an easy method. Using Crayola® Washable Markers and/or Gel Markers, color both sides of four sheets of white paper (to make four flowers). You can scribble, draw dots, lines, or zigzags of color. Use your imagination!

    Lay the paper width wise. Starting at the top, fold four times like an accordion. Cut the folded paper in half (across the folds) with Crayola Scissors. On each piece cut a V on one end about halfway up the paper. Open the folded papers. Lay them flat with the V side on top.

    Dot Crayola School Glue on the straight edge of paper, one piece at a time. Gather and pinch the glued edge on the chenille stick. Press with your fingers to make it stick. Use two pieces for each flower. Air-dry your flowers.
