This project is perfect for a child that enjoys easy crafts. Try this basket of paper flowers craft and give a flower of encouragement that will bloom all year long.

Everyone could use an encouraging word from time to time. This basket of paper flowers will make it easy to pick a positive message when you need it most.

What You'll Need:

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Colored markers
  • Scissors
  • Paper plate
  • Tape

Step 1: Draw and cut out colorful paper blossoms about three inches wide. Write an inspirational quote or saying on the back of each flower. Ask your school librarian to suggest a book of good quotes to help you get started.

Step 2: But be sure to write some of your own quotes -- you can come up with lots of good ideas. Fold a paper plate in half, and tape the sides together, leaving four or five inches at the top untaped.

Step 3: Decorate the folded plate to resemble a basket or flower pot. Slip your flowers into the paper basket, and draw from them whenever you need a lift.
