I enjoy doing this project. I talk about symmetry, proper cutting techniques, fringing, color choice, and design and pattern. I also introduce students to Polish cut-outs.
I already have the petals cut in squares. I find this to be a bit easier for the students to draw circles the same size. From there the students can cut out the circles and fringe to make petals.
Students are to draw a pattern or design on the pot. Sharpie markers are used for the pot designs.
