Jonquil flowers have such a light and happy look to them. This isn’t surprising considering they belong to the same family as daffodils. You may be thinking… Don’t daffodils bloom during spring? Why are you crafting them during December? Well, we have a reason for it! Since daffodils symbolize new beginnings, and we’re very near to a new year, we think it’s the perfect time to craft these flowers. And that’s the beauty of paper flowers! You can make any flower you want at any time and enjoy them forever. So even though it’s wintertime here in Portland, I’m going to show you how to make these crepe paper jonquil flowers using two colors of crepe from my Secret Garden Collection.

Tranquil Jonquil

Light, airy, and delicate… These crepe paper jonquil flowers are like a breath of fresh air! Our new Secret Garden pack of crepe paper includes the pattern you need to make this flower.
