The other day one of the kids at work asked me to show her how to make a snowflake. Urgh. I didn't want to see any more of those things whether they be actual frozen water or just paper. So I said I'd show her how to make a flower to color instead and it came out great so now I'm going to show you.
You will need: an 8 x 10 piece of paper, scissors and nubby, broken crayons with the paper all peeled off.
* Square your paper off. Fold the bottom corner over to one side like this and cut off that extra bit like this to make a big triangle. Save that extra piece for later!
* Fold your big triangle in half and then fold that one in half.
* Now make the top a little more interesting. You can round it off, make it jagged or do a swoop like I did. You can also make some little cuts up the sides and cut the bottom tip off if you like or leave it smooth if you'd rather not.
