Flower Craft for Mommy

What You'll Need

Gather these supplies before you start your project:
-- Pencil
-- Ruler
-- Scissors
-- Glossy magazines
-- Hole punch
-- Green chenille stems
-- Buttons

Step 1

Cut 4 to 6 same-size strips lengthwise from colorful magazine pages. Choose the width of your strips from 1/2 inch to 1 inch -- the narrower the strips, the more you will need to make the flower appear full.

Step 2

Punch 3 holes along each strip -- one centered and the others 1/2 inch from either end. Hold paper facedown and poke a chenille stem through the center hole. Fold ends over to slide other two holes onto stem.

Step 3

Add remaining strips, arranging them to form a flower design, as shown. Thread the chenille stem through a button, then back in through the flower, twisting stem behind the petals to hold it in place.
