Model Magic Roses

Model-Magic-Mom-flowers-907x1024I only half jokingly asked this 3rd grader if she wanted to teach next week’s class. I had showed students how to simply make and wrap rose petals, but she ran with the idea and added colorful stamens and beautifully detailed leaves. Thank you Erin for inspiring all of us!

1. Students started with a craft stick from Michaels (new ones that are skinnier than the classic kind) and some red Model Magic. They made a flat small circle that was roughly the size of a quarter, and wrapped it around the end of the stick to kind of look like a bud. They made more flat edged circles and wrapped them around the bud, pressing together only at the base. Repeat 4 or 5 times until the flower looks full.
2. Mix together equal yellow and blue Model Magic to make green. Made oval shapes and press to the bottom of the flower.
