Easter Bonnet With a craft knife, cut four 7-inch slits across the center of a 1-inch green paper plate in a spoke pattern, forming eight triangles. Push triangles up and out. For each flower, cut out several 5-inch circles of tissue paper, bunch together, and glue to a triangle. To decorate, attach ribbons to the rim of the plate.
