  3. Hi William! We used a black circle of construction paper cut into a fringe on the edges. We folded it into fourths to save time before cutting. The smaller green circle is another piece of painted paper, also cut into a fringe. Glue the smaller cut circle on top of the black one, glue both to the center of the flower, and scrunch the fringed edges of paper. Good luck! :)

  4. Did you do a day of painting paper? I scanned some of your lessons and didn't see what was happening earlier... Really neat lesson!

    1. Yes! In fact, we may do several days of painting. It's a great sub plan too, or if one class is ahead of another, we'll paint paper for other projects. We don't put names on them, we just paint to create a big variety of papers. :)

    3. Hi!

      Thanks for your comment! Yes, we used 12x12 black paper, and I let some of them cut the flower out if they wanted to and were finished early. :)

  6. We used 80 lb white drawing paper. The tempera paint makes it a little sturdier as well.

  8. Yes, I gave them a template to trace so they would all be the same. :)
