60 mins


Cutting mat
5 pieces of colored paper
Felt tip
Box cutter
Glue gun
Glue stick
Wooden sticks for crafts


1. Place the paper horizontally and use a ruler to mark out four equal parts. Repeat this process with two more pieces of paper.
2. Once you have the equal parts, choose one of the colors and cut the paper into 17 small rectangles. Take another piece of paper and cut it into 27 squares. Lastly, take the third piece of paper and cut it into 18 squares slightly smaller than the others.
3. Take the rectangle pieces of paper and roll each one up individually to make cone shapes. Glue them together to prevent them from coming unstuck. Repeat this process with each of the other square colors of paper.
4. Take another piece of paper and cut out 2 circles big enough so you can stick the rectangle cones onto them, with the cones just slightly hanging over the edge.
5. Use the glue gun to stick down the rectangle cones onto one of the circles, placing them next to one another until there’s no space left. Then, on top of those, start to place the cones made with the bigger squares until no more fit. Afterward, place the smaller squares on top until you have the shape of a flower. If needed, you can trim the thinner ends of the cones so they fit.
6. Pick up one of the wooden sticks and glue it to the back of the flower, then cover it with the other circle that you cut out earlier.
7. Grab your favorite nuts and dried fruits and mix them together.
8. Get the flowerpot and fill it to the top with your nut and dried fruit mix.
9. Stick the flower into the flower pot and gift it to your favorite person (or keep it for yourself!).
