Project Instructions

Fold a large sheet of green construction paper into thirds lengthwise (trifold). Unfold the sheet of paper.

Fold the top edge of the paper to the top fold line. Then, unfold the paper and reverse-fold it.

Fold the bottom edge of the paper to the bottom fold line. Then, unfold the paper and reverse-fold it.

Fringe cut only the bottom edge of the paper. Make sure you do not cut through the closest fold line.

Cover the middle section of the paper with glue. Bring the top fold and the bottom fold together in the center of the glued surface. Let the glue dry completely.

Cut out eight flower shapes from different colors of construction paper. Write one letter on each flower shape. Spell the phrase "I love you."

Cut out eight 6"x1" strips of green construction paper. These will be the flowers' stems. Glue each flower to a stem. Let the glue dry completely.

Glue the back of each stem to the uncut lip of green construction paper. Carefully bend the fringed edges of the paper forward for an added effect.

Give your beautiful flowers as a gift to someone special on Mother's Day!
