As always, we are kicking off this month’s craft collection with our Member Make flower! On July 17th, we will be going live on YouTube at 11:00 a.m. PST to show our members how to make a crepe paper African daisy. In the meantime, you can get prepared for the live workshop by checking out our tools and materials list below.
If you have any questions before then, be sure to let us know! Before the live workshop, you can also download our daisy template or SVG file and cut your pieces ahead of time if you want to craft along with me and Meagan.
You make my daisy
It really makes our day when we see how much you enjoy Member Make. It’s such a fun way for us to interact with our members and, since it’s live, you get to see some very candid moments! If you’re unable to join us live, you can always the video later on your own time.
So let’s get to the project! We have made quite a few daisies over the years out of paper and felt. And since it’s been a couple of years since our last crepe paper daisy, we thought it would be fun to design a new variety. There are so many variations of flowers and Member Make is the perfect opportunity for us to try something new.
If you haven’t joined us for Member Make before, be sure to read the instructions on how to participate. Otherwise, scroll on down for the tools and materials list plus the flower pattern.
