Supplies: Phone book and Floral Wire
Step 1: Rip 8 pages out of the yellow pages directory.
- stack them together and place them vertically in front of you
- make a 1/2 inch fold in the stack of papers
- continue to fold back and forth until entire stack is folded
Step 2: Cut a 12 inch piece of floral wire and wrap wire around the center of folded paper.
Step 3: Gently pull one sheet at a time toward the center of the wire and continue pulling sheets on the other side of the wire.
To make a 2D flower: Pull sheets toward the center of the wire on both halves so that there is a flat back to the flower.
To make a 3D flower: On the left side of the wire, pull the sheets upward toward the wire, then flip the flower over and pull the sheets on the right side of the wire in the opposite direction to create a full ball-like flower.
