Here's what you need for each one:
- hole punch
- plastic straw
- half of a pipe cleaner
2. Cut out a leaf shape and punch a hole in one corner.
3. Curl the paper fingers and the edge of the leaf by wrapping them around the pencil.
4. Wrap the hand around the top of the straw and secure with tape. (Make sure the curls are facing outward.) Slide the leaves onto the straw and tape them in place.
5. For the flower's stamen fold half of a pipe cleaner in half and curl down the ends. Insert the folded end in the straw.
** To make the lilies shown in Family Fun, use green straws and paper, a yellow pipe cleaner, and white cardstock for the flowers. **
Here's a close-up view of one of our flowers... as you can see we didn't stick to the traditional colors.
