I would expect that most of the supplies you already have at home or in the classroom so the cost is minimal and making a flower or two would take about 15 minutes while making an entire bouquet for mom might be closer to 25 minutes for most kids.

How to Make Construction Paper Flower bouquet and Supplies and Steps 1-3
Here are the first few steps to make construction paper flowers!

Step 1

Cut 3-inch wide strips of colored construction paper, one for each flower you wish to make.

Step 2

Then, cut slits almost all the way through each strip,  kind of like when you’re making grass for a paper craft.

Step 3

Put a line of glue along the solid edge, place a popsicle stick at one end, and roll it up inside of the paper.

Step 4

Add a  thin piece of duct tape around the base of the paper flower to reinforce it onto the popsicle stick.

Step 5

Use your fingers to bend and fluff out the pieces of paper into a flower shape.

Step 6

Glue ribbon around the toilet paper roll, and then place the popsicle stick paper flowers inside the toilet paper roll.


Want more realistic flower stems? You can paint the craft stick green. That way they look more like fresh flowers!

Want your flowers to be more open, you can kind of maneuver the flower petals so that your paper flower bouquet project looks bigger.

You can also make your bouquet any size. Add more flowers for a larger bouquet or less for a small bouquet. You can also make them smaller using less paper and make small stems using smaller craft sticks.

Other Paper Flower Bouquet Ideas

You can use all your favorite colors for this paper bouquet. Want to make it extra special? Either buy green craft sticks from local craft stores or paint each stick green. That way the base of the flower has a green stem! 

You could even get green construction from your local craft store and make leaves to stick at the bottom of the petal. Make this paper flower bouquet craft your own!

Make these easy paper flowers as like in the instructions, or add your own personal touches like glitter!

Or you could make a single flower and use it as a gift topper! Spice up those wrapped gifts with simple paper flowers instead of bows.
