Easy Flower Craft

To create your own eyes:

  1. Use the larger of the two flat, round objects to create the whites of the eyes. Simply dip in white paint and apply to the cardstock.
  2. Once the white has dried, dip the smaller, round object in black paint and add to the dried white circles. See picture.
  3.  Use a pen to outline the upper eye and add eyelashes!
  4. Continue making the face with your pen. Add a smile and round circles for the cheeks.
  5. Make a small circle at the top of one of the green pipe cleaners. Twist the end to keep the circle intact. This is your stem.
  6. Add another pipe cleaner, perpendicular across the middle of the ‚Äústem‚ÄĚ. Bend each side in towards the stem to create leaves. Twist the ends around to keep it stable.
  7. Once all your pieces have dried, assemble the flower. Glue the egg carton to the circle at the top of the stem. Glue the face into the flower! Viola! Enjoy your adorable flowers!
