Recylced Flower making

In one lesson we experimented with making flowers from recycled magazines and cardboard. We started by rolling up a double sheet of a magazine finely into a very small tube.
We then used masking tape to secure the edges and cut off a few centimetres at each end.
Taking a pen I rolled 6 pieces of 2cm wide cardboard strips  until they curled. I cut the bottom end to be thin and pressed it so it could fit into the slot at the top of the roll.
 I then did this for the other 5 strips experimenting with size and shape until I couldn't fit any more inside.

The class then put together all of their 'flowers' and created a cool looking bunch of flowers!
