mom & me 3d paper flower pot

Step 1
Cut a piece of bright green cardstock to 2" by 5". Roll the cardstock around a pencil to create a 5" long tube. 
Step 2
ADULT: Place a line of hot glue on the end of the cardstock to keep it in a roll. Pull the pencil out of the tube and set aside. 
Step 3
Click here to Download and print the template. Cut out the petal and leaf shape patterns.  
Step 4
Trace and cut three of the small petal shape patterns (A) out of a piece of brightly-colored cardstock. Fold them in half, vertically, and allow them to open naturally. 
Step 5
ADULT: Add a dab of hot glue to one end of a small petal and place that end inside the stem (bright green tube). Repeat for the remaining two small folded petals around the inside of the stem. 
Step 6
Trace and cut 15-18 large petals (B) from the same color of cardstock. 
Step 7
Use your index finger and thumb to pull the petals, one at a time, through your fingers to create a curved petal. 
Step 8
ADULT: Hot glue the arched petals to the outside of the tube, overlapping around the stem, to build the flower, until you are happy with the size.
 
TIP: If more petals are needed, trace and cut more.
Step 9
Trace and cut out two of the larger leaf shapes (C) onto a piece of green shaded paper. 
Step 10
Use your index finger and thumb to pull the leaf through and create a curve in the paper. 
Step 11
ADULT: Hot glue the leaves underneath the last row of petals. 
Step 12
Paint dots around the clay pot with the eraser on the pencil. Let dry. 
Step 13
Place the finished paper flower into the pot. Make more flowers as desired.
