Envelopes to match
Green, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Red strips of paper (Use purchased
sheets or magazine cutouts)
Punches - Round, Petal Shape (optional)
Paint Brush to apply glue.
Use punches or scissors to cut out petals and leaves from old
magazine pages in various bright colors.
2. Use a round hole punch to punch out some
circles for the centers of the flowers.
3. Apply glue to the base of a petal with
the help of a paint brush. Place the base of another petal over it
at an angle and press.
Go on adding 5-6 petals in a similar way
till your flower is ready.
Apply glue to the back center of the prepared flower and stick it
on the card.
5. Take a round punched circle and glue it
to the center of the flower. Use a contrasting color which stands
out. For e.g. pink center for a yellow flower or a yellow center
for a blue or red flower.
6. Use some green petals to make leaves.
Glue them around the flower to add color to the card.
Note: When gluing the petals and
leaves to the card, do not apply glue on the entire surface of the
petals and flatten them on the card. Instead, apply glue only on
the horizontal center-line of the petal so the petals and leaves
look like cutouts.
Voila! Your bright and sunny little card is
ready to go out and send your invitations and thanks and best
