How to Make a Paper Flower Daffodil

Any Beginner Can Make This Amazing Paper Flower

Have you always loved the way paper flowers can look when someone else makes them but are not too sure if you can do the same? Paper flower daffodils may be the answer and a way for you to get started on making many paper flowers in the future. 
With this paper daffodil template, a Cricut machine or a pair of scissors and other assorted supplies, you can take your flower making to the next level without an issue.

This project is very beginner-friendly and those who are experienced, can take this pattern and add their own flair.

If you don’t have easy access to crepe-paper, you can use tissue paper for this make. I prefer to use a softer material so it can be easily bent into place, but you can use anything you wish.

 You will also find the template already to go in my resource library (asset #323)

Daffodil Step-by-Step Guide

Step One - Download the Template

To start you will want to download the template (asset #323) from my resource library.

Unzip the file and upload the SVG file only to Cricut Design Space

Step Two - Design Space Adjustments

When you are in Design Space, you will need to ungroup the entire file so you can make the changes.

Change the color of all pieces to one color - dark green is good.

Duplicate the leaves so you have two small leave and two large leaves.

Duplicate the petal piece to have 10 petals.

Save your file and Click on Make It

Step Three - Adjusting the pieces on Your Mat

Because all the pieces were colored the same, they will all be lined up on the same mat. You will want to separate the petals and the trumpet into one area and the leaves and calyx into another area on the mat.

I suggest you place all the petals at the top with the trumpet and all the leaves and calyx at the bottom. We are doing this so you can cut out two different colors of the same material from the one mat.

Step Four - Material Selection

For this project you will want to use crepe-paper if you have it or tissue paper. Select the correct material for your machine and then follow the directions for scoring and cutting.

Step Five- Assembly

First you will be gluing the trumpet together so that it makes a cylinder.
Take your stem and place it just inside the trumpet, then squeeze the bottom of the trumpet so that it is tight against your stem. Now tape it in place.
Next, place the petals all around the outside of the trumpet and tape them in place.
The calyx goes on next.
Finally, add the leaves to the stem by using your floral tape.
Tape everything firmly in place to make your daffodil.
