Supplies needed:
  • Scrap paper (recycled paper, newspaper, phone books, etc.)
  • Watercolor or tempera paints
  • Brush
  • Scissors
  • Old plastic lids or a compass (for drawing circles) -- or draw them by hand
  • Pencil
  • One brad for each flower
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • White cardstock paper (or construction paper) for the card base.

Form a card base: Fold a piece of white cardstock (or colored construction paper) in half.
Paint freely on scrap paper (recycled paper, newspaper, or phone books). Make many pieces using many colors. Have fun exploring color mixing and trying new brush strokes. This is a lot of fun!

Let the paint dry.

Cut many circles (of different sizes) from the painted paper. To make circles, use a compass, old plastic lids, or any circular objects you have on hand. Or just draw them by hand -- they don't have to be perfect.

For each flower you'll need about 5 circles of different sizes, ranging from about 1 inch in diameter to about 3 1/2 inches diameter.

Punch a hole in the center of each circle. For the larger circles, you may have to crumple the circles a bit to punch the center, but that's fine -- it makes the petals even prettier.

To form each flower, layer the circles with the biggest on the bottom. Insert a brad through the circles.

Design your card: Decide where you want your flower to be on the card.

After deciding on the placement of the flower, insert the brad through the top of the card and fasten it. Draw a stem and leaves for your flower.

You now have a beautiful flower card!
