DANDELION

What you`ll need:

— double-sided paper;
— a straw for cocktail;
— scissors,
— an awl;
— PVA glue;
— a knife for cutting paper;
— a ruler;

How to make:

On the short side of the paper sheet A4 cut the strips 05 cm broad. With an awl twist a tight coil, glue the strip end. With a toothpick make a hole in the coil; as a result you`ll have a workpiece in the form of a cone. All the spirals should be of the same length; check the length with a ruler. We`ve used the cones of about 20 mm long. Make the needed number of workpieces.

Now start assembling the flower. Glue the cones into a circle. And up glue the second, the third and the fourth rows till you`ll have a hemisphere. Then turn the workpiece over and go on gluing the cones but not to the end: leave a small hole where the stalk is attached.

To make a stalk, take a straw for cocktail and green paper. On the short side of the green paper cut a strip of about 2 — 2,5 cm, glue the strip on its perimeter. Wrap the pipe with paper like a spiral.

Make the leaves. On the short side of the green paper cut a strip of about 5 cm broad. Make fringe on the strip.

Take the straw for cocktail pasted with paper, leave 2 cm from its edge and glue the fringe edge. Twist the fringe onto the stalk, glue its end.
