Things needed

Step-by-step Instruction to make a Paper lotus

2. Inner petals

Cut the “Inner petal” Template from the printable. Lay the template over the Pink sheet and trace with a pencil. To be precise, we need 6 Petals adjacent to one another ( refer to image). Mark them and cut.

Using a glue gun, stick together the Flaps at the bottom of each petal so that the petals get curvy. Finally, stick either end together, forming a ring of petals.

Make the outer petals in the same way how we made the inner petals. However, in this case, each petal will be a separate one.

Cut out the template, trace, cut and stick the bottom flaps of each petal. We might need a minimum of 12 petals.
