Give your mom a pretty Mother’s Day bouquet with a twist by making beautiful flowers with paper. Follow these steps to make your mother or grandmother a beautiful bouquet at home! Serve your mom breakfast on Mother’s Day morning, and give her the beautiful bouquet of flowers you made especially for her!

What You Need:

  •  9″ x 12″ sheets of construction paper or any paper (even typing paper works)
  • crayons, markers or other art supplies
  • scissors
  • glue, tape or stapler

What You Do:

  • Decorate a 9” x 12” sheet of paper. Use crayons, markers or paint to create bright colorful designs.
  • Fold the paper in half, lengthwise.
  • Mark a line 1″ from the open edge across the width of the paper.
  • Cut strips, about 1/2 inch, from the folded edge up to the line
  • Fold the two uncut edges together, and roll the paper together, lengthwise. A daisy shape will begin to appear.
  • Fasten the paper together with glue, tape or staples.
  • Repeat and make more flowers for your mom.
  • Chenille stems (pipe cleaners) can be attached for stems.

These flowers are great for Mother’s Day, or any day!
