Here's what you need:

  • Colored paper
  • Cardboard or thick paper (for base)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Compass or Printer (if you are too lazy to draw circles with compasses, then at the end of the article there are links to ready-made files for printing on a printer).

Each giant dahlia consists of 2 basic geometric shapes: a large circle with a diameter of 20 cm - as a base and several squares with a side of 10 cm and 11.5 cm rolled up in the form of cones.

Step 2

In order to roll a square into a cone, use PVA or thermal glue.

At this stage, fold all the squares into a cone and cut out a circle with a diameter of 20cm. If you want to make flowers even larger, then increase the diameter of the circle, for example, up to 23-25cm. However, you need more squares.
