HYACINTH PAPER FLOWERs
Construction or scrapbooking paper
Craft glue (Tacky glue works well here but it does require some time holding the pieces while it dries. If working with older kids or adults, you can use a hot glue gun and glue sticks).
Cut out a long rectangle of construction paper.
Fold it in half lengthwise.
Cut small strips along the folded edge of the paper to create a sort of fringed effect. Be sure not to cut all the way through.
Glue the fringed strip of paper around one end of the straw with the fringe facing away from the rest of the straw. It helps to glue the strip to the straw at a bit of a diagonal (so that it’s not stacked evenly on top of the rest of the strip, but rather, it’s moving a little bit down the straw as you go).
Cut and fringe more pieces of paper, gluing them onto the straw until you have as many as you’d like for your hyacinth.
