There is really no shortage of unique flowers and variations of flowers that you can make out of paper. Since our theme for the month is focused on space, we decided to make this frosted paper spoon daisy as it looks a little like it’s from an alien planet!
Because of the small petals that you’ll need to roll and glue together, we are calling this flower an intermediate project. To get started, check out our tools and materials list, then download the pattern and tutorial below.
Spoonfuls of creativity
If you look up this flower, which also goes by African spoon daisy, you’ll see there are many ways to get creative with the colors you use. For our frosted paper spoon daisy, Meagan used a combination of text-weight papers and colored her petals with a purple colored pencil and some PanPastel. Everything we used is linked below, but of course, you can use whatever colors you prefer.
To achieve the fluted, spoon-shaped petals, our tutorial will show you how to roll your petals. Another unique feature of this flower is the stamen tips, which look almost like stars.
Skill level: Intermediate
Crafting tips: Color the flowers before removing the paper from your cutting mat! This will make it much easier as they won’t move around. We also recommend using tweezers to apply the small yellow stamen tips. If using a Cricut cutting machine, we found that the “Copy Paper” or “Paper” setting on a dial worked best for the small pieces. Use a clean mat and fresh blade for the best cut.
