I saw this on Family Fun. Tristan didn't really take to it. I did most of the work, but he was very excited when he realized it was a flower.
So what you need...
1 piece of white card stock
1 piece of green card stock
Yellow pipe cleaner
For each flower you do, make that many hands
We made two flowers so I traced his hand twice.
Then cute it/them out.
On the green card stock, fold it in half
Draw 2 leaves on one of the folded sides, leaving about a half an inch stem on the fold crease
Then cut the leaves out
Once you've cut the leaves out, with your hole punch, punch a hole in the center of the crease
Go back to your hand cut out and take a pencil and wrap the fingers around it to form a curl.
Do this for each finger.
Then take the pencil and wrap the wrist end around the back of the hand.
This just makes it easier to wrap the hand around the straw.
When you've wrapped the wrist end around the straw tape it to secure it on.
Then, take your leaves, and put the straw through the hole and secure it with tape.
Use the pencil to curl your leaves as well.
Then take your pipe cleaner and cut it in half.
Bend that half in half and place it in the top of the straw.
Then you're done.
