Cardboard tube tulips

I have been saving all of the cardboard tubes from our toilet paper rolls for a while so I have a drawer full. I have a plan how to use them for Christmas, but it is only June and I have more than enough. When Girl Child saw a picture of flowers like these and wanted to make them, I knew we had a use for some of those extra tubes.

I found a template for the flowers and leaves at Easy Child Crafts. You could certainly make the template yourself, but it is nice when someone else has done the work for you!

What you need:

  • construction paper or cardstock
  • tape and/or glue
  • glitter optional

Cut a rectangle of green paper to wrap around the cardboard tube. I secured it with tape but you could certainly use glue or staples.

Cut a slit about 1/2 inch long on each side of the top.

Girl Child needed some glitter, so I added some to the tips.

She added some all over. By all over, I mean the flowers, the floor, herself, everything!

Glue two leaves on the front.

Fit the flowers into the slits.
