The first step is to clean the cup in case you are recycling it. Let it dry completely. Don’t worry about any stains or marks as you will anyway be painting over it.
Hold the cup in your hand and cut out thin strips starting at the outer edge till you reach the bottom of the cup. Slowly rotate the cup as you cut so that all sides are cut.
Once the cup is ready, open the edges to reveal a flower shape. using your finger, slightly pinch at the bottom to secure the edge to stay open.
The paper cups have a wax coating so they don’t accept color easily. We used a red sharpie to make some designs. You could totally skip this step and use acrylic paints. Tempera & watercolors don’t stay because of the wax coating.
We wanted our flowers to have some shading so we used a pink brush pen to cover the white spaces.
Color the center yellow and then add dots using a black marker or permanent markers.
Cut out two leaf shapes out of green construction paper and add accents using a green brush pen.
Using a hot glue gun, stick them all together.
