Just as we were starting to see some signs of spring in Portland, it snowed! But the great thing about crafting is that we can make our own flowers anytime. Last week, we made some pretty paper sweet peas. And then a couple of weeks ago, we made these felt crocus flowers. Today we’re showing you how to make crepe paper double daffodils, which—like the crocus—typically bloom by late winter or early spring.
Double daffodils also go by the name Narcissus Erlicheer. If you haven’t seen this flower before, it features double blooms with ivory-white petals and creamy yellow centers. They look a bit like gardenias, which is another very soft, romantic flower. I would also say these flowers, or at least the stems and leaves, are similar to paperwhites.
To craft these crepe paper double daffodils, I used my extra-fine crepe paper for the petals and my double-sided crepe for the leaves. I also used PanPastel to color the petals. If you need some tips on how to color your flowers with PanPastel, watch this video.
If you’re new to making paper flowers, you might not be ready for PanPastel yet. But it will help make your flowers look more realistic. So I encourage you to try it out at some point! And if you have any questions for me, just comment below.
I would also love to see YOUR version of my crepe paper double daffodils! Remember to use #MadeWithLia when sharing photos of your LG projects. Or you can post pictures on our Facebook page for members. Happy flower crafting! ~Lia and team

I am having the same issue with a blurry image in the middle of the pattern and only the leaves no petals.
The SVG file has been updated and should work for you now!
I seem to be having issues with downloading the SVG. All I get is leaves, then in the center a a blurred area.No petals.
Hi! I double-checked the SVG and it’s working fine for me. Can you email us a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Hi, ive uploaded the SGV, but the gold spathe appears to be missing, there is a dark rectangular shape showing instead?
Thank you for letting us know! The error has been fixed, please download the SVG again 🙂
Wow you are talent! I want to do something with kids, do you think we can make it, as a beginners? =)
The Narcissus is slightly more advanced because the petals are small, check out our getting started page where we recommend some of our best beginner flowers https://liagriffith.com/getting-started-crepe-paper-flowers/
The SVG file says to print 2 sheets of the petals for 6 stems, but you need 3 sheets printed petals for 6 stems.
Thank you for pointing this out! I have updated the SVG to show the proper amount to cut! 🙂
Why does the SVG only have the leaves?
Hi Susan, the SVG has both leaves and petals. If you’re previewing the file, it only shows the leaves, but when you upload the SVG you’ll see it has everything needed to make the flowers.
