Take & Make - Rainbow Collage

If you registered for and picked up a bag, you'll have what you need for this craft ready to go. But even without the bag, you can still follow our video instructions to add some color to the final few weeks of winter with a torn paper rainbow collage. 


Hello Crafters! Today we are going to make flowers in a fun new way. All you need are scissors, color papers, glue stick, tape, and a printout of the template.

First, print your template out. There are 4 leaves and lines for you to use to cut out your colored paper or you can color them in yourselves.

Place two strips as shown in the video. Glue them together at the joining. Fold one over the other until they are one springy column. Cut off any excess.
