Valentine's Flower

Here are some sweet flowers are a lot cheaper than roses and they won't die.

But best of all they are made with love.

Cheyanne and I used: Construction paper, scissors, glue and a chenille stem.

(I also used a stapler to reinforce the flower.)

Cut the paper into strips about an inch thick. I used 4 strips of paper.

Glue together an "X" with 2 strips.

Make another "X" and glue it on top making a star shape.

Then cut the strips in half up to the center.

Place glue on the tips and fold over to the center.

Fold all strips over to form a flower.

You may want to add a staple to hold it all down.

Glue a circle in the middle.

Add a chenille stem to make a hanger.

What a cute idea! I doubt I'll be getting in flowers this Valentine's so maybe I better make some for myself!
