Paper Flower Tutorial- Easy Daisy

Paper Flower Tutorial
Paper Flowers
Sharing a simple paper flower tutorial. This tutorial is for the daisy in the Stationary Set posted earlier.
A few steps transform the flat punched daisy to a dimensional beautiful flower.This method can be adapted to many different punched flower shapes and not just the daisy.
How to Make a Daisy Punchcraft Flower


Punchcraft Flower Tutorial
Paper- white and red paper[ I didnt use cardstock as I find it difficult to punch thick paper]
Punches-I punched 2 daisies , 2 suns and a tiny flower[optional] as shown for each Punchcraft Daisy flower. If you dont have a punch you can still use this tutorial techniques to shape and craft hand cut flowers.
A self retaining forceps is a wonderful tool in crafting. Mine is something I bought locally and it was not very expensive.A forceps is  actually not essential as you can always use nimble fingers![I have thick stubby fingers so for me this forceps is the best tool!]
Embossing Tool [ any rounded blunt object will do!]
Embossing Mat- No need to rush out and buy one as you can always use the soft foamy side of your mouse pad
Black Sketch pen or paint 
Glue
Paper Flower Tutorial
Grasp a punched daisy as shown so that it grips 2 petals at the center. You can grasp a single petal but shaping 2 petals in one go makes it so much faster[ I am always on the look out for such time saver techniques and I hope you guys like it too !]
Paper Flower Tutorial
Fold over the flower at right angles at the forceps grip and in no time you can fold and crease all the petals to make a quick punchcraft flower.

Paper Flower Tutorial
Use the shaped flowers as such or layer the 2 daisies to make your punchcraft flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
Layer the 2 flowers atop each other and glue with a dot of glue at the center. Make the center with contrasting color sun shape or any other shape you fancy.
Paper Flower Tutorial
A neat trick is to shade the tips of the central shape of your paper flower.
Paper Flower Tutorial
Apply a dot of glue on the center of the daisy and glue one central sun shape punchcraft flower.

    I think your daisies are absolutely stunning with the red and black centers.
    It is so nice of you to post the tutorials. I use tweezers all the time too as it is so much easier to grasp than with my fingers.
    I had surgery on both hands for carpal tunnel and my fingers don't co-operate like they used to.

  31. Again I am late in posting my comments. But they are awesome. These flowers look mast and your tuts make it a child's play actually. I tried the balloon flower tutorial you shared, but since I had no balloon punch with me, I drew a Hearts template on my own and came up with a flower on a the same lines. Will share the pic with you. Its good but not as good as yours..
    Thanks again Sonia... You are awesome...
    Keep Posting
    XOXO
