In case it needs to be said, and it appears it does, do not steal my images. Do not ‘pin’ them. If you have come here from anywhere other than the Crafty Crow, you have come from a site that has taken my images without permission.
A quick google search will show you different variations of this beautiful folded flower. This craft happened to be one offered to members at our local museum this past week. Out of all the fun crafts we did, this was my favourite!
All you need is 5 post-it-notes or 5 squares of paper and white glue.
- Fold the bottom corner to the top. This will make a triangle.
- Fold the left and right corners up to the middle corner. This will make a square.
- Fold open and flatten the folded up sides. With post-it-notes there will be a sticky side. You may want to use a skewer to help unstick it as you open the folds.
- Fold the top of the triangles towards you so they are level with the edges of the paper.
- Fold the triangles on the sides in on themselves.
- Glue the two folded sides together. You will probably have to hold it until the glue dries a bit. Don’t worry if the petals look a bit “flat”. Once the seams are dry you can push them a bit more round and open.
- When the petals are dry you now glue them together to make a the flower. I like to glue three together and then two and once they are mostly dry, glue them all together.
- Repeat with the 4 other post-it-notes
