Newspaper Flowers

I'm still recycling. I made these flowers with instructions from Redtedsart Blog. They are super cute and easy to make. My students could craft these for special events at school: Grandparents' Day, Mother's Day, Staff Appreciation, PTA recognition, etc.
I wanted to continue the newspaper theme for my classroom recycling display, so I used old newspaper. The flowers could be made using magazines for added color.

A circle cutter is a useful tool for a teacher's toolbox.


  1. Love these newspaper flowers! Do you think old book pages could be used to make these?

  2. I do believe using old book pages is a clever idea , especially if you are a book lover or [in your case] a writer. The paper flowers would be a great addition to a bookshelf.
