I went to Lowe's, saw paint chips, and had to.
This was fun to make, actually. I often find myself at Lowe's (hardware store, like Home Depot) stealing the free paint chips. They come in like every colour, and i love colours so... yeah :) A free decoration for your wall or whatever, and it comes in EVERY COLOUR.

  • How to make a paper flower. Free Rainbow Flower - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather all materials. Get an even number of chips. I chose Olympic Premium paint chips in rainbow colours!

    Step 2

    Cut out one of the paint chips in the shape you want your petal to be. Then, use it on top of the other chips as a pattern so that they all are the same size/shape.

    Step 3

    Glue two petals you want to be across from each other together at the base. Since i did rainbow colours, i put complimentary colours together. Like a colour wheel! Repeat with all your pairs of petals.

  • Step 4

    Glue them together, one pair on top of the other. Doesn't really matter how.

  • Step 5

    Glue on your oversized button! It hides the petal bases, and looks more like a flower now.
