Here is a quick little Spring craft that I wanted to share. We made paper and pipe cleaner flowers with a cute little flower punch I found on sale at Michaels the other week. I've been having so much fun with this punch! Actually, big brother has been hogging it now that I showed him how to use it.
First I (ok we...errr...mostly big brother) punched out a bunch of flowers using a couple different colors of card stock. I then pricked a hole in the center of each one with a thumbtack.
I cut green pipe cleaners into 3 sections and poked it through the hole in the middle of two flowers, then folded over the tip of the pipe cleaner to create the center of the flower.
Lastly, I folded up the petals of the top flowers only. That's it!
I couldn't resist making a mini bouquet :o)
