This Instructable is for the Singer Kids Craft Contest. I chose to enter this instructable because it is very easy and kids can use their imajinations to change the looks of the flowers. It takes about 3 minutes per flower and you can make a whole bunch in no time at all! Makes a great Mothers Day present!

Step 1: Materials

To make the Construction Paper and Pipe Cleaner Flowers, you will need:

-Scissors

-A Pen

-Construction Paper

-A Green Pipe Cleaner

-A Hole Punch

Step 2: Making Purple Petals...

Draw some rounded tear drop shapes on your Construction Paper.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 5 YEARS OF AGE USE SAFTY SCISSORS FOR HEAVENS SAKE!

Now just cut out those founded teardrops.

Step 4: Punching Holes...

Use the Hole Punch and punch a hole at the bottom of each rounded teardrop that will very soon become a petal.

Step 5: Stringing on the Petals...

String the petals onto the Pipe Cleaner.

Step 6: Bending...

Bend above and below the petals so that they will stay.

Step 7: All Done / Other Ideas...

Now that your flower is finished, go and make tons more! Other Ideas:
