This paper flower bowl makes a lovely container for sweets and nuts.

Approximate Time: 15 mins.



  1. Print the flower template on cardstock.

  2. Cut out shape with scissors.

  3. Score along dotted lines using the back of your craft knife and cut straight solid lines (this is the tab).

  4. Fold up all petals on score lines. Apply glue to each tab and press outside each petal.

  5. Gently open out the petals with your fingers or by rolling them around your pencil to make a lovely flower bowl.

I have seen a bowl made with rolled up paper tubes then I think varnished or painted? Anyone know how to do this?

In school, we used to make baskets by folding long strips of paper, then using the strips to weave. You can attach a handle, too.


We then painted them and gave them a coat of PVA glue which dried clear like varnish. They made nice Mother's Day gifts with sweets or etc in them.
