You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Click here to download and print the template. Cut out the container shape.  
Step 2
Trace your hand three times onto cardstock. Cut out all the hand shapes. 
Step 3
Trace the container shape onto construction paper and cut out. 
Step 4
To make the container, fold the construction paper over 1½" on top. Next, roll the paper into a tube and glue the ends closed, with the fold exposed around the outside of the container. Let glue dry.

TIP: For best results when gluing, hold the ends together for at least 60 seconds.
Step 5
Roll the paper hands into a tube. Slide the bottom of the hand over a craft stick and glue edges together. Make sure to hold the glued areas together for at least 60 seconds. Repeat for all the hand flowers. Let glue dry.

TIP: Use the project image as a guide.
Step 6
Wrap a chenille pipe cleaner two times around the area where the "hand" is glued to the craft stick. With the remaining chenille pipe cleaner, bend it into a leaf shape and twist the end to keep it in place. Repeat for all the hand flowers. 
Step 7
Glue a pom-pom into the "palm" of all the hand flowers. Let dry. 
Step 8
Gently bend the fingers of the hand flowers back, making a soft curve. This helps the hands resemble flowers. 
Step 9
Glue the ends of the craft stick to the inside of the container. Make sure to space evenly around the container for balance. Let dry.

TIP: Remember to hold the glued areas together for at least 60 seconds for best results.
