Step 1

Using your ruler and pencil, measure out five squares that are 5cm by 5cm.

Step 2

Then cut out your square’s using your scissors, and paint one side of each square then allow to dry for 10 minutes. Once dried, paint the other side of each square then allow to dry for a further 10 minutes.

Step 3

Once your square’s are dried, take one square and fold it diagonally.

Step 7

Using the PVA glue/glue stick, apply a thin layer of glue on the scribbled parts of the paper.

Step 8

Stick the two sides together and allow it to dry for 15-20 minutes. Repeat the entire process for the rest of the paper squares. If your having trouble keeping the sides together, use a peg to hold them so they can dry. They should look like mini petals like this:

Step 9

Once all the petals have dried, begin to glue them by their sides one by one.
