Flowers made with straws

6

We need 11 straws for the medium size flowers which i have made
Thin wire (easily available in market, ask for thin wire used for making artificial flowers)
Needle

1. Need to cut each straw into 8 pieces of equal size in the height (cut the straw into half and again cut into half twice)

2. Have to cut one end of each small straw pieces in a semi circle shape so that it looks like a petal

3. Cut the same piece from the 2 sides so that you will have 2 pieces in petal shape

4. After cutting all the pieces fold it on the side which is not shaped in semi circle and make a hole with the help of a needle

5. pierce it into a thin wire

6. After piercing all the petals of all the 11 straws into the wire, hold the two ends of the wire and push all the petals to the middle and twist the wire so that petals do not come out and cut the wire

7. Now you have the flowers with a hole in it, then take an old plastic flowers take out the petals and just use the stem and put them in middle of the straw flower.

Your flower is ready

For the leaves ive used glazed paper (usually used by school children for the scrap books) stuck the wire in the middle of two papers and made some lines with pencil to make it look like a leaf

    The procedure is a bit tedious. But not very hard to make.
