Directions to make a Handprint paper flower
Place the baby’s palm on a cardstock sheet and trace around with a pencil. Cut out the handpieces. Altogether, make 5 pieces
Using a straw, roll the finger edge slightly to make it curvy.
Next, make a small cut at the bottom of the handprint and make a small overlap and seal the cut with paper glue. This is to add contour to the petal of the flower.
Then cut a circle for the central part and make dots with a white marker(optional). I used a handmade sheet because of the beautiful bicolour texture it has.
Next, glue the petals to the centre circular piece. Arrange the petals equidistant to one another.
Finally, Glue the paper straw on the rear.
Add some leaves as well. All done. You have made a Handprint paper flower.
