Card Stock Flower 

  1. trace your child’s hand on the colored piece of card stock 
  2. cut your child’s hand out 
  3. take your green card stock piece and cut in half 
  4. take one half and roll the paper to make the stem 
  5. use the other half to cut your leaves out.  You will want to adjust your leaves according to your child’s hand size. 
  6. Take the hand cut and pinch the bottom of the hand to make the flower 
  7. staple the hand to the stem piece 
  8. cut out your leaves and staple the leaves around the hand.
** all of my pieces I just stapled to the stem or flower**
