How to Make Giant 3D Rainbow Paper Flowers
Cut 1″ (or wider) paper strips in rainbow colors and an additional green paper strip for a flower stem.
Using a giant hole punch, cut a circle from black construction paper. We used a 1.25″ circle puncher. It’s important for the circle to be wider than the paper strips.
Align the paper strips and punch holes on both sides. On 2nd the green paper strip punch only one hole for the top part where it connects with the petals. Punch a hole in the middle of the black circle as well.
Place the black circle on top of the stacked rainbow strips and thread a pipe cleaner through. Flip the flower over and thread through the second hole to form the flower petals.

Add the green paper strip for a stem. Coil the pipe cleaner on top of the black circle. Flip and secure the pipe cleaner on the back of the flower. Cut any extra pipe cleaner using scissors.
Place a piece of white construction paper on the table. Apply glue to the back of the stem. Glue it onto the white paper.
Fold the bottom of the green paper strip, apply glue, and glue to the paper. This will form a leaf. Separate and arrange rainbow paper strips to form a flower head.
