- Coloured paper - regular A4 sheets are great, preferably coloured on both sides
- Straws - green if you can find them
- PVA glue
Step 1: Cut paper
Take one set of paper and cut from the bottom corner to the middle of the other side. It's important that you leave one long edge intact as you'll need this area to apply your glue to. The large piece is the one you'll be using.
Step 2: Fringing
The finer the strips, the finer the "petals". Chunkier means fewer petals but also a more sparse looking flower. Somewhere in between is good.
