Paper flowers are fun to make and last longer than real blossoms. Anything goes as far as colour, pattern, size and type of paper. With simple materials that can be found around the house, make a vase full of daisies to brighten your room or brighten someone's day. Any age group can make these daisies for any occasion.

  1. 1

    Fold the sheet of construction paper in half, lengthwise. Draw a line lengthwise from one end of the folded sheet to the other along the open, not folded edge, an inch from the edge.

  2. 2

    Mark off half-inch marks along the length of the folded edge. Cut strips along the measured marks of the folded edge toward the open edge, up to the one-inch mark you made in Step 1.

  3. 3

    Roll the paper until the two short edges come together. Tape the edges together.

  4. 4

    Bend the folded petals back to the point where the cut line ends, away from the centre to make the daisy. Slightly open each petal near the fold to open them.

Tips and warnings

  • Consider making stems using thick pipe cleaners or paper. If you want to decorate the flowers, do so after folding but before cutting the strips in Step 2. Glue or staples can be used as substitutes for tape.
