Lotus Flower

Flowers can be made from any material: threads, fabrics, beads, wood, iron ... But the simplest crafts will be made of paper. Sometimes you see a bouquet and you do not understand what it is made of, but you come closer and consider the paper composition. Today I want to share with you a rather simple master class on making a lotus flower out of paper. To work, you will need only a few leaves of exactly double-sided colored paper. The simplest option is two colors: necessarily green and another bright (purple, pink, blue). So, you need to cut sheets of paper into equal rectangles. The size of each should be 10 cm by 4 cm. For such a flower you need 4 green blanks and 8 colored ones.

You also need to do it with the second half. This is how each blank should look like.
