St. Therese 3D Rose Craft

Happy Feast of St. Therese – may her life of little ways be an inspiration to us all and a reminder that it is doing everything in and out of love that will bring about the biggest change of all in our hearts, minds, lives and world. So lets change this world with love!

My husband and I made a simple 3D rose craft to use to celebrate the feast of St. Therese, bring some nice colour to you dining table and help inspire the kids to join in spread love in lots of little ways!

Step 2 – Have your child write an act of love, a prayer or sacrifice that they would like to offer in love to our Lord, like St. Therese did. You can learn more about the Little ways here

Step 3 – Colour in the rose petals and centre piece.

Step 4 – Cut out rose petals along dotted line, so that the is a small slit in each petal, cut out the centre piece too.
Step 5 – Fold one slit over the other and glue or tape it together so that it makes the petal curve upwards.
Step 6 – Take your first petal, then take your second petal and either tape it on the back (if you are using crayons this is recommended) or glue the petals together. You will want the petals to overlap just before the half way point.Repeats for all petals.

Step 7 – Tape/glue the 3rd petal behind the middle of the 2nd petal, continue until your petals are forming a nice round bud (you may only need to use 5).

Step 8 – Glue/Tape Centre piece

Step 9 – Admire your child’s masterpiece!

Alternative option would be to use the template to cut out coloured construction paper petals to form a bouquet of colours!
