Collage Flower Placemat

When the Torah was given, Mt. Sinai blossomed with flowers. Therefore, it is customary to decorate our houses and tables with flowers on Shavuot. Here's a fun and easy flower craft. 

You will need:
Nature/Gardening Magazines
Tissue Paper
Clear Contact Paper/Lamination

Cut your piece of cardstock to the size of a placemat. Cut out photos of flowers from the magazines, or use photos of flowers you've taken yourself. Arrange them on the cardstock. Cut out flower shapes from the tissue paper and add them to your collage. Glue everything down and let dry. Once the glue is dry, cut the contact paper to the size of your placemat, and carefully cover the placemat (front and back) with contact paper. Enjoy your Shavuot placemat!
