Total Time: 30 minutes
Step 1: Prepare a piece of red paper
Start making the flower. To make it, prepare a square of red paper.
Step 2: Transform paper
Mark the cross creases on the square.
Step 3: Transform the paper to other sides
Fold the blank along two diagonals.
Step 4: Use a scissors
Make 2.5-3 cm (0.98 – 1.18 in) cuts along the transverse folds.
Step 5: Use the glue
Apply glue to the area adjacent to the cut.
Step 6: Connect the cut pieces
Glue the cut edges of the square.
Step 7: Form a flower head
Glue all the cuts in the same way and you will get a flower.
Step 8: Work with the green paper
First, cut the sheet of paper in half, and then cut one half in half again.
Step 9: Use a large piece of green paper
From a large blank, make a stem for a tulip. Roll the sheet into a tube.
Step 10: Form the stem completely
Fix the edges with glue. Your stem is finished.
Step 11: Take the scissors
Make 4 incisions at the end of the stem and fold the edges.
Step 12: Connect the pieces of the flower
Apply glue and connect the stem to the red flower.
Step 13: Use small pieces of green paper
Fold the remaining 2 pieces of green paper in half and cut out the outline of the leaf.
Step 14: Prepare the glue
This will give you 2 leaves. Glue them to the bottom of the stem.
- square of red paper with 11 cm (4.33 in) side;
