They’re based on the paper daisy folding technique - though a little different because the petals are sort of heart shaped.
yellow and green paper or plain paper to paint
sheet of newspaper
small plastic flower pot or yogurt pot
yellow and orange paint
PVA craft glue
Two small bottles or pots, for circle templates. One a little bigger than the other (for leaves).
While the paint is drying, draw round the smaller circle template (we used a spice jar) for your primrose, and cut it out.
Draw another line passing through this point from side to side, making a cross.
Then draw the rounded top part of a petal, from the point where the lines cross, curved up to the top and back down to the end of the line on both sides (like the top of a heart). Keep them even.
To make the flower centre, put a small dab of orange in the middle, and two short, thick strokes of yellow, touching the orange, under it.
Fold the flower in half, gently pressing the sides together.
To make the leaves, draw round your larger circle template and cut it out.
Scrunch up the sheet of newspaper and stick it into the flower or yogurt pot, making sure a decent amount of it sits proud in a good mound shape.
