First, find 3 objects that you can use as a circle template in small, medium and large sizes.
Next, place your small object on a recycled magazine page and trace around the object with a pen. The more colorful the page the better.
Now, fold the large circle in half, and then in quarters and hold it at the tip of the triangle you've formed. Try not to crease the folds if possible. Next, using your scissors cut out petal shapes along the rounded edge of your triangle, being mindful not to cut the pointed end. It may be helpful to sketch the petal shapes for kids to follow. Unfold and repeat with each of the remaining circles, using a similar pattern.
Then, repeat with the medium and large objects on a separate magazine page and cut out all 3.
Once all 3 of your circles are cut into petal patterns, glue the medium circle to the center of the large circle. Then glue your small circle to the middle.
Now, add a mini circle to the center of your small circle to create the center of your flower. You can also use a button, stick-on jewel or glitter instead.
Finally, glue a button magnet to the back of your recycled paper flower craft for kids and slightly crinkle the petals towards the face of the flower so they do not lay completely flat. Once dry these earth-friendly embellishments will be ready to adorn your fridge or memo board.
