Step 1 : Cut Out 5 Identical Mickey Heads
Create a template for cutting out 5 identical Mickey heads from the paper you wish to make into a flower. For small flowers 2.5 inches in height worked well with 3.5 inches worked well for larger flowers.
Hint: If you have a Cricut Machine and the Mickey and Friends cartridge you can easily create identical Mickey Heads in any size you wish.
Step 2 : Fold Mickey Heads in Half and Adhere Together
Fold each Mickey Head in half. Make sure that you fold the Mickey Heads so that the flower pattern you want is on the inside.
Adhere each head to the next by stacking them on top of each other. You can use glue or craft tape to do this. Hint: Leave about 1/4″ from the fold without glue or tape. This will make it easy to add the stem later.
When complete adhere the first and last side to each other to make the flower.
Step 3 : Create a Stem Using a Straw
Cover a straw with paper or a ribbon to make the stem.
Now if you were smart and purchased pretty straws let them be and enjoy the added beauty.
Hint: 1/4″ paper strips work best for wrapping around a straw.
