Let's start with this simple paper cup flowers. These are the items you need ~ paper cup, scissors, color pen.
Cut a straight line until there's 1 inch left at the bottom of the cup. Repeat this by leaving 0.5 inch space between the lines. If you would like to put some items into this flower cup, then ensure that you do not cut until too deep to the bottom.
This is how it'll look like. Press all the paper downwards like this:
Then twist one of the paper to the back of the next paper beside:
Repeat it till you finished all of them:
So you can see the flower is done and you just need to do some colouring on it, as you like or even put some ribbons for deco:
(Flower on the left is done by my little girl, age 6 and was given to my dear friend)
Or even have a play with your kids like this :) they'll just enjoy this
(Put a satay stick with cello tape at the back of the cup and you can have a standing flower)
With this, you can also create a bunch of them with beautiful colors in a plant pot as a gift. So the next time after using a paper cup, just don't throw it, but wash it and keep it for this ..support recycling :)
