Make - paper flowers

Good morning, I hope you are looking forward to a great weekend, I am as I will be attending another great market this Sunday at Green Park Bath and as it is Mothering Sunday here in the UK there is going to lots of wonderful things going on. Magpie and I markets are joining in the fun with a vintage tea party, live music and lots of lovely stalls for you to treat mum. Come along if you can, we will be there between 10am and 4pm.

As Mothers Day is upon us I thought I would share a little make with you, it is a great thing to do with your kids so they can make a card for granny.

What you need...

A template or two flower shapes - one slightly smaller than the other, some pretty paper, a blank card and envelope, some brads and any other embellishments you may want to add.

Draw around your template on to the paper, you will need 2 large cutouts and 1 small for each flower.

Next you need to fold the cutouts, on the black lines fold inwards so the pattern is on the inside and on the white lines fold in the opposite direction so that the pattern is on the outside. Open out and your 'petals' should now be 3 dimensional.

Layer the cutouts so the smallest is on the top and carefully push a brad through the centre and open it at the back to secure. Pinch in the folds to make them more defined.

Finally move the layers so the lay in alternate directions and give a more 3D effect. Use to decorate your greetings card.

I apologise that the photo's aren't great but they were taken on a very grey and rainy day!
