Hello my loving Asean Hive community
About 3 days ago I made a Christmas tree with some color paper. Today I made some plants using some colored paper. Today I made some cute cactus plants. The vase used to hold these cactus plants is also very cute. It is cheaper and easier as it is made mainly of colored paper and cardboard. I made the cactus plant about 8 inches in size. The cactus plants that I am going to talk about are small and cute, so they are perfect for a gift. If you love handmade, diy and papercraft, you will definitely love these small cute cactus plants made of colored paper.
• color paper
• Pencil and ruler
First, I used green color paper and pencil. I drew circles on color paper. Then I cut those circles with scissors. I cut about 24 green color paper circles. Then I fold those green color paper circles in the middle.
I cut the yellow color paper 1cm wide. I cut the yellow color paper into a lot of small triangles as shown in the picture.
Now I'm ready to make a cactus. I glued the folded green color papers together. In some places between the green paper, I also glued some yellow triangles. Glue some yellow triangles together with about 12 green color papers to get the image shown above.
Glue the two edges of the green color paper together and you will have a cactus. However, the cactus shown here is not perfect. I still need to make a flower.
I drew a square 5cm x 5cm wide on red color paper and cut it with scissors. I folded it three times in a triangle. On it I drew it as shown in the picture.
Then I cut it with scissors and put it back in its original shape. I rolled the edges of the flower a little with a pencil.
Then I glued the red flower and the cactus together.
For the vase, I drew two circles on cardboard and cut them with scissors. I drew a rectangle 21cm x 8cm on cardboard and cut it with scissors.
On that piece of cardboard, I drew a line 1cm wide. Without touching that line, I cut it into small pieces with scissors.
Then attach the cardboard to the circle cardboard and you have a cute vase. I put some pieces of paper in it. On top of that, I put a circle of cardboard.
I attached this cute vase and cactus. Now I have a very cute cactus plant. I made two cactus plants the same way. On the vase, I drew some pictures and decorated some letters. I think these cactus vases would be so cute as a gift. If you like the making cactus plant I mentioned, you might want to give it a try.
