Make Egg Carton Flowers-Recycling

Recycling is the most interesting activity..may be I will show you someday the rough stuff I have saved in my craft room, which makes my mother angry sometimes but I know how to keep her cool with a warm hug..hehe..she think I am making my craft room more dirty with these recyclable stuff until I make something useful with these unnecessary things.

Kitchen is my favorite area for collecting these kind of things, like any crockery thing like cracked mug/broken mug, chipped vase ,Plate, plastic spoons or any tin can , sweets box , soft drink bottles , any glass or tray etc. You can check some more up-cycled fun tutorials here in my archives list .

Cut their edges & make a round shaped cups,

Cut it with scissor and you can shape them as any petal.

Fix a center bud & its done.

For making a center bud rosette you will cut a strip of the same Styrofoam(you can try with tissue paper too)

Make it round & fix with a thumb pin.(Dont use any GLUE or adhesive thing)

A common pin will also be ok but be careful while working.

Flowers are done,Now you can color these & arrange with any floral arrangements.

The thumb pin was having more weight than this light weight flower, so I fix a common pin for the rosette making and fixing.

I hope you understand the whole process of making these up-cycled/recycled flowers.
