Dandelion from paper and cotton in 9 Steps
Total Time: 30 minutes
Prepare the paper parts
First make blanks of colored paper for the future dandelion. Cut out a circle of yellow paper and a rectangle of light green paper.
Glue the stem and center of the flower
Form a stalk from a green blank. Twist the tube, fix its edge with glue. Place the blue sheet vertically. Glue the green stalk on it and the yellow circle that will be the middle of the dandelion.
Use cotton wool for the dandelion parachute
Use cotton wool. First apply the glue around the yellow blank. Tear off the pieces of cotton wool and glue them separately.
Glue the parachutes of a dandelion
Gradually form the white part to create dandelion parachutes.
Use green paper
Cut out leaves from green paper for your flower. Fold several rectangles along, and then cut out one side in the shape of claw leaves.
Create three sheets based on the sample
You should get such jagged leaves as in the photo.
Glue the leaves to the bottom of the stem. Apply the glue only in one place in the form of a small circle.
