A Flower for Mother’s Day

A Flower for Mother’s DayWe cut out a flower template (height circa 60cm) from large, rigid paperboard. We decorate petals with slips of coloured paper. A narrow strip of colour crepe we fold many times and glue it around a centre of a flower. Then we glue on it a circle with a drawing which presents parents. We paint a stem and leaves green or glue on them slips of green paper.

A Photo Frame

Photo FrameWe cut out a background of a coloured paper for our frame in size of the CD, then we cut a hole for a picture in the centre, in this case oval one, and glue to a CD. We cut blotting paper of 4cm width and form “threads” of it which we later glue to the background of a frame. We form leaves and a stem form “threads”, we cut out leaves.

Small cuts from the back are to drag out a safety pin through them (preferably with a tutor’s help).
