A few years ago, my youngest daughter made me a beautiful flower as a Mother’s Day gift in school. I have moved that precious flower three times and still treasure it. These easy magazine flowers are a fun quick project to make for party decorations or for children to make as a Mother’s Day gift.
This is a great recycling project to use up those magazines and catalogs you have lying around.
Old magazines and catalogs
Green pipe cleaners
Paper cutter or scissors
Cut the paper into strips 1/2 inch to 1 inch wide based on your preference. In cutting the paper strips, also consider the picture and any areas you want to cut out or preserve. Sort the paper strips into similar colors. The color groups don’t have to be exact (they aren’t in nature), just similar.
