Little hands can help too, kids love cutting and sticking (always supervise with scissors!)
Choose from three designs at your skill level and follow these steps to create your own spring inspired floral card. Happy snipping!
(L-R) Daffodil (easy 4+yrs), Blossom (intermediate), Anemone (intricate).
1. TRACE + CUT! Using a pencil trace the outlines onto paper. Cut out.
2. FOLD! Gently fold the petals towards the centre of the flower.
3. STICK! Layer flower shapes and glue at the centre. Position and stick to cards. Trim off excess stems.
