Spring is near! We love crafting new flowers as we wait for all of our favorites to bloom. And although we’ve made many different daffodils over the years, these cardstock paper daffodils are a first.

These cardstock paper daffodils make such beautiful decor for spring. Simply place a few in a vase, or you can add them to a paper bouquet. They would also make a lovely centerpiece for an Easter brunch or other spring celebration.

As always, you can use whatever paper colors you prefer when making your flowers. Meagan chose a white shade for these cardstock paper daffodils, and then added some pale yellow lines to the petals with a brushmarker. We’d love to see your version, so be sure to share it with us in our crafter’s community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

Skill level: Intermediate due to using more advanced shaping techniques with the steel ball tool

Crafting tips: When using the steel ball shaping tools with paper or cardstock, always use a soft surface that has some give. I like to use a folded up piece of scrap felt, or an ironing board also works great.
