Sticky Mud and Belly Laughs

Easy Paper Flower Craft

Spring is my absolute favourite season. Cold bitter winds turn into gentle tepid breezes. Spring bulbs bring beautiful blooms, it’s just so welcoming after the winter months don’t you think? So what better way to celebrate spring awakening, other than with this simple Paper Flower Craft.

What you will need

Assorted paper


If you use a thicker craft paper or card, then you will probably be best using glu spots or tape.

Hole punch (mine is 40mm)

Paper straws



Begin with cutting your strips. I  cut mine 16cm x 1cm. If you are doing this with a younger child then you could cut the strips wider, it really is personal preference. Once your strips are all cut, punch out your circles for the centres of the flowers.


Stick the ends of each together, until you are happy with the number of loops for your flower.

Glue the loops to the back of your circle as shown and carry on until you fill up the gaps.

When all of your loops are attached, simply stick on your paper straw using some sellotape.
