The ease in the usage provides this material an upper hand in designs and craft ideas. It is actually a base for most of the art works. It is inexpensive and is an error free medium to work with. So here I have taken up some types of paper art forms to explore in these summer holidays. Hope you enjoy making them all.

Now let us make some roses to compliment our gifts. Roses are the flowers which are loved by everyone. So let us try making them easy and fast. First of all make a big circle, about the size of a full plate. Now just make a spiral inside it. Cut along the lines of the spiral after you cut out the circle. Now holding it from the inner edge start rolling. Use a soft hand while rolling to maintain the roundness of the flower. After the rolling is complete glue the end of the flower. When the glue dries use a bamboo stick to push through the flower. Secure the bamboo stick with the tape. Watch these cute kids giving you the tutorial in this video tutorial.

Hope you enjoyed these arts. But we must be vary of the fact that we must not waste paper. Paper is made from the pulp of the trees and wastage of paper results in cutting down of more trees. So we must use paper as and when we require. It is there for our use but it should not be wasted.
