You'll need:

  • cardstock paper
  • yellow and green paint
  • black or brown construction paper
  • black marker
  • empty toilet paper tube


First draw a circle with the marker by either tracing a cup or a can, or freehanding the circle. Then flatten one end of the toilet paper tube and crease the edges to create and oval. Dip the oval in yellow paint and stamp all the way around the circle to create outlines of petals.

You'll want the petals pretty close together, but if it's not perfect, no worries, it's all about the fun! 20160630_101445

Next up, fill in the outlines with yellow paint.

After the petals are complete, fill the center with glue lines. Rip the construction paper into pieces and place them on the glued area.

The paper squares add a fun texture to the project.
