Marbled Model Magic Flowers
Activity DesignerRyan Pilat
We created these marbled flowers as a fun gift to mail to Grandma and Gramps. They were so easy to make and the result is so pretty, I think this might become our go-to handmade birthday gift project. I picked Model Magic as the material because it's so lightweight -- they'll be easy to mail, and could even be mounted in a shadowbox frame for display.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
We started by rolling out the stems, just like you'd roll out a snake. My original thought was to make several flowers and then tie them together with a pretty ribbon. But as soon as I said "bouquet", my son decided that the stems had to be joined together, so that's what we did.
We also created a giant sunflower -- this was so big and delicate, we worked directly on the wax paper so we wouldn't have to move it.
