Materials

  • An A4 sheet of paper
  • A pencil
  • A craft knife/scissors
  • A ruler
  • Glue (I used white glue but you can use any glue you are comfortable with)
  • Flat base pearl beads

Drawing, cutting, folding, and gluing

Drawing:

  • Using the ruler and pencil draw 5cm x5cm squares.
  • Each flower requires 10 squares.

Cutting:

  • Use the craft knife & ruler or scissors to cut the squares.

Folding:

  • Fold the squares diagonally to form a triangle.
  • Pinch the centre of the longest side of the triangle.Pinch on the very edge.

Gluing:

  • Apply glue along the edge of the longest side of the triangle and press gently to prevent the petals from losing shape.
  • After all petals have been made apply glue to one side of a petal and glue another petal to it with the previously glued edge on the bottom (the straight edge). Continue until all ten petals are glued.
  • glue the pearls to the tip of the flowers

Watch how to assemble the flower

 

 

Tips:

The petals when glued together will leave a hole right in the centre in which you can insert a wire for a stem. Otherwise you can just stick the flowers down.

Happy crafting!!
