Use rubber cement to create unusual designs on paper flowers for spring. This technique also makes unique designs for note cards and other things.
Approximate Time: 20 - 30 minutes, plus drying time
- construction paper or card stock
- rubber cement
- acrylic paint
- paint brush
- Draw and cut a flower design from construction paper or card stock. For each tulip I used two colors, one for the blossom and one for the stem.
- Drizzle rubber cement over the surface of the flower blossom and allow the glue to dry. The glue will be hard, but tacky.
- Choose a color paint that is different from your paper color and paint over the surface of the blossom, covering the glue. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Use your fingertips to rub the paint where you drizzled glue - the surface will be slightly raised, so it's not difficult to find.
- As you rub, you will remove the paint in the glued areas, as the glue peels off. This will create unique designs on each blossom.
- To finish each flower, glue the blossom to the stem.

Very simple idea for adding a little color to your spring.
Approximate Time: 20 min.
- card stock or construction paper in yellow, green, and one other color - your choice
- string, dental floss, invisible thread, or fishing line
- Measure and cut 1x9 inch strips of paper. You will need 1 yellow strip, 3 green strips, and 6 of your chosen color.
- Roll the yellow strip to form a circle and staple the ends together. Do the same for each of the 6 chosen color strips.
- Place the yellow circle in the center, surround it by the colored circles, and staple the colored circles to the yellow one to form the blossom.
- Slide one green strip between two of the colored circles and staple it in place for the stem.
- Loop the other two green strips to form teardrop leaf shapes and staple these to the stem.
- Use string, clear thread, dental floss, or fishing line to suspend the flower from a curtain rod as in the photo, or in any other place you wish to accent.

Paper plates, markers or paint sticks, glue, and construction paper are all that is needed for your child to create one or a garden full of pretty flowers to decorate their room. This is a page about making a spring paper plate flower.
