A-Peeling Petals

A-Peeling Petals craft

Separate layers of corrugated cardboard to make an a-peeling floral bouquet! Crayola® Gel Markers lend color and dimension to every gorgeous petal.

  • 1.

    Use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw a flower with just a few petals on a sheet of corrugated cardboard. Make the center of the flower, where the petals meet, fairly wide to anchor the A-Peeling Petals.

  • 2.

    Ask an adult to help you cut out your flower with Crayola Scissors and to poke a small hole in the center.

  • 3.

    Corrugated cardboard has three layers: a top and bottom, which are thin brown paper, and a central, rippled layer. Carefully peel the layers of cardboard apart.

  • 4.

    Use Crayola Gel Markers to color each layer. Use the most detail on the top layer because it will show the most. For a dimensional effect, curl the top petals up and the bottom petals down by winding the paper around a colored pencil. Remove the pencil.

  • 5.

    Push a chenille stem through the hole in the center of the flower. Curl the top of the stem into a small spiral, so it stays in place.

  • 6.

    Ask an adult to help you cut another stem in half. Wrap half of this stem tightly around the base of the flower.

  • 7.

    Draw a leaf or two on the cardboard. Color both sides with Crayola Gel Markers.

  • 8.

    Ask an adult to help you cut out the leaf. Leave it flat. Pinch one end of the leaf, so you can place it on the stem. Wrap the other half of the chenille stem tightly around the base of the leaf and then on the flower stem. If necessary, add Crayola Schoo
