How to Make Spring Flowers Tulip Paper Craft


Here are all the materials you'll need:

Green craft paper (3 shades)
Craft paper for tulips (your choice of colour)
Craft glue


1. Choose 3 different shades of green craft paper and 2 flower colours (e.g. red, pink, purple, orange, yellow or white).

2. Use the free printable stencil to trace the grass patterns on 2 different shades of green paper, then trace the stem and leaf patterns on the other piece of green paper.

3. Trace the tulip petal patterns on the papers selected for the flowers.

4. Cut out all of the traced patterns.

5. Apply glue along the sides and bottom of the short grass pattern, but not on the top zigzag edge.

6. Stick the glued side of the short grass pattern along the bottom side of the long grass pattern.

This way it will form a pocket on the top side, between the 2 grass layers. 

7. Grab the tulip petals and stick a petal on a side of the teardrop shaped petal (the middle petal).

The pointy top end of the side petals should face outwards.

8. Stick the other side petal on the opposite side of the first one.

9. Stick the leaf patterns onto the stem cutout.

10. Stick the paper tulip on the top side of the stem cutout.

11. Insert the bottom side of the stem through the grass pocket.

12. Craft more flowers and put them inside the grass pocket to make a pretty garden.

The craft can then be used as a decoration or attached to a sheet of card to make a pretty birthday, Mother's Day or Easter card.
