Candy bouquet of colored paper

Color paper - a favorable material for creativity with children. From two-sided colored paper, you can come up with voluminous crafts, and then present them as a gift. For example, we together with our daughters tried to make such flowers, very similar to roses. As a result, a beautiful candy bouquet turned out. Work required: 1) double-sided colored paper; 2) plasticine (better hardening), dough can be used for modeling; 3) tubules for cocktail; 4) scissors, glue stick, silicone glue, a simple pencil and ruler.  The work required >
All work can be divided into several stages. Flower. 1. First, we prepared strips of colored paper for future petals. To do this, using a ruler and a pencil, a sheet of colored paper was spread. The width of the strips may be different. What the petals are already, the flower will get air. The width of our strips is 1 cm.It seemed to me the optimal value. Not too wide and not very narrow for small fingers. The length of the strips depends on the size of the paper. We cut a sheet of paper along the entire length, and then each strip was divided in two, so that no scraps remained. This work is quite possible to entrust the child, who owns a good scissors. Even if he makes a little mistake, it will not affect the final result.

At the end 4 petals were glued together. They turned the flower into a circle up and gently pasted the middle of the petals.
