Water rose

Cut out a flower shape from smooth colour paper. Fold the petals firmly inwards. Put the rose on the water. Paper consists mainly of plant fibre, which is composed of extremely fine tubes. The water rises in these so-called capillary tubes. The paper swells, and the petals of the paper rose rise up.
