  1. Take the purple paper and fold it in half twice.
  2. Using scissors, make cuts about 0.5 cm apart.
  3. Glue both sides together where there are no cuts, let the glue dry.
  4. We make a stem for paper lavender. Take green paper (17 x 14 cm) and start twisting it from one corner with a skewer. The use of a skewer is optional here, it just helps to get the perfect twist. Secure the ends with glue.
  5. Cut a little off both ends of the stem so they are perfectly round.
  6. Now take a rectangle of green paper (14 x 12 cm) and cut out leaves from it.
  7. We connect all the parts together. Take purple paper and attach one end of it to the top of the stem. Wrap it tightly around the paper stem, moving slowly down as you go, sticking it to the stem with glue.
  8. Glue the leaves around the stem and gently fluff the flower petals with your fingers.
