Paper Cut-Outs

I enjoy doing this project. I talk about symmetry, proper cutting techniques, fringing, color choice, and design and pattern. I also introduce students to Polish cut-outs.

I already have the petals cut in squares. I find this to be a bit easier for the students to draw circles the same size. From there the students can cut out the circles and fringe to make petals.

Students are to draw a pattern or design on the pot. Sharpie markers are used for the pot designs.

  1. These Paper Cut-Outs are beautiful.
    It definitely teaches symmetry.

    I also like the 3-D aspect of the flowers.
