STEP 2: Prepare paper strips

To get started, cut a strip of paper and wrap it to form a ring by joining the ends. Continue with the remaining strips of paper.

STEP 3: Prepare paper flowers

Next, create crease lines on the flower cut outs by folding from one petal tip to the diagonally opposite petal tip. Lay one of the flower cut outs on top of the other one in a criss-cross arrangement and glue in place, as shown below.

STEP 4: Attach paper rings to flowers

Once you've done that, take a paper ring and attach it on the centre of the flower. One by one, attach the rest of the paper rings on the centre of the flower. This will form a fringed flower pattern as seen below.

Now, take the small round cut out and attach it on the centre of the flower pattern.

Continue to attach paper flowers on the wreath base until it is completely filled with beautiful flowers! Once you're done gluing the flowers, glue the paper leaves around them. Allow time for the glue to dry and you're done.
