The Ultimate Spring Flower
Is anyone else ready for Spring? We’re bringing the sunshine in early with these pretty paper flower daffodils in metallic yellow with deep green foliage. Our six petalled paper flowers are simple to make either by hand or using a cutting machine. The trumpet centers are easy to create with our pattern and our step-by-step tutorial below shows you everything you need to know to put these beauties together.
Let’s Get Started
Begin by gathering your materials, download our pattern PDF or print and cut using the SVG file below if you have a cutting machine. Trim all the pieces to size then score and gently fold each petal before you begin to assemble. This scoring and folding technique will give a gentle curve to the petals which reflects the light in a beautiful way – suddenly your paper flowers are brought to life! We like to use a low temperature glue gun to assemble our paper flowers – they are easy to use and will hold the paper together well. Our other top tip when making paper flowers is to wrap the floral stem in floral tape – in this project we also used it to connect the pretty green leaves to the flower stems. It makes for a professional finish, so is well worth having as part of your paper flower making materials stash!
