Materials for the product: two-color corrugated paper (green for the stem and leaves and any other for the flower), a small caramel, teip tape, wire, scissors and threads.
Roses from corrugated paper can be presented as a bouquet
From the paper intended for the flower, cut 11 rectangular blanks: 6 4x7 cm in size and 5 6x7 cm in size, round their edges on one side.
Give the blanks the shape of real petals, stretching their middle to a state of slight bulge. Leave the edges as they are.
Wrap the candy in one of the wide petals so that it is not visible - in this case, caramel is not for a gift, but for giving the rose the necessary shape. And attach the structure to the wire.
The remaining four wide sepals (those that emerged from 6x7 rectangles) wrap as tightly as possible around the core with candy, observing the same height.
Place the narrower rose petals opposite each other, but not as densely as the wide ones.
All petals must be taped with tape and give them a natural shape.
Wrap the wire with green paper and attach the “leaves” of the rose at a certain distance.

Materials and tools: yellow, green and brown paper, wire (small length), threads, PVA glue, scissors, skewer, tape (green).
The beginning of the paper sunflower is its core. Start work with it: cut two strips of 6-7 cm wide from the brown roll. Ideally, if you have brown paper in two shades, it’s lighter and darker. Cut one side with an even fringe, do not touch the other. Roll both strips into a roll and fix it with threads at the bottom.
From the yellow paper, cut the blanks for the petals - the larger, the more the sunflower will look more natural. The size of the strips is 4x6 cm. When everyone is ready, round the corners with one groan on each.

There is no man on earth who would not lovespring flowers and did not regret the short time allotted for their flowering. Not nature decided so ... And we - in a different way. It is possible to continue the life of tulips and crocuses with the help of ordinary corrugated paper.
Materials and tools: for the manufacture of both types of flowers you will need corrugated paper (green and other colors, at your discretion), scissors, glue, wire.
The set is standard, suitable for all products. Having it in front of you, you can make any flowers from corrugated paper in stages.
Cut a sufficiently long strip measuring 3x18 cm.
Fold it in half, then - in half and so on - untilthe size corresponding to the actual size of the tulip petal will not work. Try to fold as carefully as possible to get the same petals as a result.
Cut the petal: the top is an oval, and the bottom is optimally narrowed (you can cut along a small triangle on both sides).
Separate the resulting petals from each other and now work with each separately: squeeze the narrow bottom and twist the flagellum.
The top of each of the petals must be bent, giving them a natural shape: for this you just need to stretch the paper slightly.
Form a bud by folding all the blanks and giving them the shape of a tulip.
Fasten the narrow, harness-like part of the tulip to the wire and fix it well.
Wrap the wire with a narrow strip of green paper and attach two narrow sheets folded in the middle. The tulip is ready.

Many paper craft lovers supplyhome-made tulips also with stamens. And others do not bother with stamens, considering that such flowers are ideal for creating bouquets of sweets and corrugated paper.
To obtain plausible crocus from paper, you will need toothpicks and glue.
Having placed the corrugated paper in such a way that as a result the relief passes along the short side, cut the blanks - 8x4 cm rectangles.
From the rectangles folded with an accordion, cut 6 identical petals and slightly twist the tip of each onto a thin toothpick.
Prepare the stamens: cut a rectangle of yellow (white) paper with a fringe, leaving a narrow, solid strip, not reaching the edge.
Twist each fringe element like a flagellum and roll the stamens with a tube, wrapping paper with a skewer or a toothpick.
Lubricate the bottom of the stamen with glue and begin to attach the petals one at a time.
At the final stage of work, wrap the wooden "stem" with green paper and glue the leaves.
