Recycled Flowers

This project is a little late for earth day, but then again it's very important to remember the earth everyday right!

What you will need for this project:
*Plastic Water Bottle, you could use a 2-liter bottle if you want to make larger flowers
*Paint-tempera,acrylic, whatever......
*Paper-anytype...recycled...paperbags...even fabric if you would like but remember to use fabric paint. that you've got your supplies your ready to create recycled flowers. Simply dip the bottom of your bottle in paint and stamp it onto your paper or fabric of choice, and that's it! Now you can paint stems or whatever else!

TIP: Check out the bottom of your bottle before stamping, different bottles make different types of flowers, it could be fun to mix them! Also note that not all bottles make good flowers:( They need to have some flatness to them, so test them out first before using them on your project!
