Paper flowers, feathers and leaves: Beautiful decorations for celebrations and fiestas!
You will need scissors and a glue stick to make decorative paper flowers. For longer lasting, sturdier flowers and feathers print on to a heavier stock paper. For a colorful bouquet you can print onto colored card stock or color the templates in before cutting them out.

Carefully cut out the flower templates and sort them into groups of similar shaped petals. Ideally you will use three templates for each flower.
Gently fold the petals towards the center of the flower. You can experiment with the direction of the fold to achieve different effects. You can also mix the petals of different shaped flowers.
Stick the second flower template in the center of the first.
Stick the final template in the center of the flower.
