Who says we have to go outdoors to see some pretty flowers?! Not us at Easy Crafts for kids as we make lots of flower crafts indoors! My easy paper Roses are a huge hit all year long and my pop up flower card makes for a great Mother’s Day or Birthday card for Mum. 

I can show you how to make fabulous paper flowers which look dead fancy! These would be perfect stuck onto some cardstock for a Mother’s Day card. 

These are perfect for Kindergarten art projects and even preschool with some help from teachers. 

Of course you can make as many of these as you wish. Why not make a brown pot shape and stick the flowers above it to make a beautiful plant craft. 

I have lots of ideas for flower crafts for kids if you want similar activities

Once the rolling reaches the center allow the rolled spiral pattern to loosen up a little. Apply a drop of glue on the center to secure the spiral roll.

Now place the round paper on the center of the scalloped border paper cutout.

Step 9:

Done! You can add more layers if you want, just make sure to adjust the size and pattern.

Cut out a stem and leaf patterns from green colored craft papers and attach them with the flowers.



Why not make lots of these in different colors. They would look dead pretty stuck on the wall. Make them sparkly by adding some sequins and glitter. 

You can make flowers from virtually any craft material. I have seen adorable cupcake liner flowers, a pipe cleaner bouquet and paper plate flowers. Why not experiment with a few different materials and see what you can come up with. 

Of course you can also draw using markers and paint using your handprint.
