Hang these up in a window or from a ceiling for a lovely handmade floral display.
These beautiful paper flowers look complicated to make but are really easy; each flower is made from only seven paper bags and some glue.
You can buy 50 or 100 paper bags for a few pounds at stationery or packaging suppliers.
The biggest bags we made flowers with were approx. 20cm x 25cm.
Experiment with paper bag sizes, paper bag colours, decorating the bags with chalks, paint, felt pens or even stickers.
What you’ll need:
Paper bags (no gusset), seven per flower
Chalks, paint, felt pens or stickers to decorate
How to make a flower:
Glue a paper bag in a T pattern, across the bottom and down the middle.
Place another bag on top.
Repeat glue process until you have a stack of 7 glued together bags.
Cut the open ends into a petal shape (for stars cut a triangular shape).
Snip fringe cuts around petal shape if you fancy.
Glue one more T pattern, put your hands into the outermost bags, open out and stick together.
Here’s a great tutorial video of how to make them.
