A Potted Hyacinth
The supplies are colored paper, scissors, a toothpick, a pencil, a sharpie, a glue stick and baker’s twine
Cut a blush sheet of paper into wide stripes
Make each strip fringed
Curl the fringe with a pencil
Take a green sheet of paper and glue it, then swirl it up to form a stem
Cutout a triangle strip of green paper
Attach them to the stem to show off leaves
Glue the pink fringe strips to the stem
Tear off some cardboard pieces and scrunch them up
Then put a hyacinth into the jar and fill it with this cardboard to make it stand still. Add baker’s twine to the jar as decor. Cut out a speech bubble and right your wishes on it, put it on a toothpick and into the jar. Voila!
Daffodils In A Vase
The supplies are yellow paper, a doily, a piercer, green drink straws, brushes, scissors, paints and a toilet paper roll.
Take a toilet paper roll and paint it yellow
Add vertical green lines and small white dots on them
Cut out some large yellow check marks, make holes in the center of each mark using a piercer
Put several marks in each straw adding a white cupcake liner on top (make a whole in it with the same piercer)
Cut out a wide strip of white paper and glue it inside the paper roll
Then glue the fringe and attach the whole roll to the doily. Put your daffodils inside and you are done!
A Tulip Bouquet
The supplies are colored paper, a puncher, a pencil.
Cut out some green rectangles and make slits in the center using your puncher
Then curve the paper like you see that in the video and form such a curved base.
Draw and cut out some green leaves of paper and then glue them to the base
Draw and cut out some orange and yellow tulips, make tiny slits in them and put them right on the base - they will sit rather stably
Add a red ribbon bow to the bouquet and voila!
