Sweet wrapper, cellophane, flower, candy


At Christmas we were given a big box of Quality Street chocolates, each wrapped in brightly coloured cellophane. I saved the cellophane thinking it would come in handy for a creative project. This weekend my niece and nephew made some flowers to add to a window box they used to decorate a cardboard play house.

Time: 5 minutes
Age: 5-10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Coloured cellophane
Popsicle sticks
Washi tape (or any tape will do)

Method
Take a square of cellophane and pinch in the middle.
Wrap another piece around in a different colour. You can add more layers for a larger flower.

Take the pinched central part and lay over the top of a popsicle stick.
Wrap tape around to secure.

Why not make lots and give a bunch as a gift or stick into a homemade window box like we did.
