Paper Daffodils tutorial 
         Dear friends Thank you so much for the heartwarming response to my Easy Paper flower tutorial using the flower punch board.Sharing yet another paper flower tutorial- this time cheerful summery Daffodils.
Paper Holder 1
Paper Holder
       I altered this box into a paper/ magazine holder to store some of my A 4 papers but my daughter has laid claim to it as she wanted the " magic " Daffodil flowers!!

        In the picture above you can see the dimensional nature of the paper daffodils.Since I didnt have any pretty yellow paper I stamped and embossed regular chart paper to make my own pattern paper to create the  Paper Daffodils.

       The leaves were hand cut ,inked with distress ink, stamped with the same flourish stamp I used on the flowers and embossed.I couldn't resist adding a favourite Cheery Lynn  Butterfly to keep the flowers company!

Paper Flower tutorial 

How to make the Paper Daffodils

Materials
  • Flower Punch Board- Read more about it here: Easy flowers with Flower Punch Board
  • Paper - good quality pattern paper or card stock ideal to get clean cuts with the flower punch board but you can also use chart paper like I did here
  • Glue & Scissors
  • Optional : Stamps , Inkpads , Embossing Powders , Diamond dust
If you are not familiar with the flower Punch board please read this tutorial first : Easy flowers with Flower Punch Board
  1. Take a 2 x 5 1/4 inch strip paper and punch a paper strip like you would do for a XXS flower but don't score the diagonals and only partially score the vertical scores as shown. 
    Paper Daffodil tutorial 
  2. Align the tips of the petals to the " S " line and score the strip. 
    Paper Daffodil tutorial 
  3. Bend the strip at the score line and snip off wedges as shown.
    Paper Daffodil tutorial 
  4. Ink your petals if you desire and apply glue on one petal and stick to form a cylinder.

  5. Apply glue on the folded wedges and stick on a  7 petal 4 inch diameter flower [XS flower] made with the flower punch board.

  6. Use the slotted end of the shaping tool to gently evert the inner tube petals
  7. Make and stick a fringed paper flower to the center .I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix fringe die to make the fringed center of the flower but you can easily handcut a fringed flower like I did in this Large Paper Flower tutorial .

            My young daughter helped to further jazz up the flowers with Diamond dust and she has nicknamed our shimmery daffodils as "Magic Flowers" !

  42. Wow, Sonia, I have just bought a book on DIY fabric flowers and come back home and... found this new amazing post. I love daffodils, I adore them, and I adore yours! I saw the flower punch board in my favourite shop about ten days ago, but I had purchased a lot of things that day and I didn't want to spend more money. I was so stupid! Now it is the first item in my to-buy-list.
    Congratulations for your crafts, Sonia! When I see them I smile!

  48. Dear friend, everything you make is so unique and filled with the utmost beauty! Your daffodils are exquisite! The intricacy is lovely, but what also strikes me is that you so beautifully embossed the paper to create such a pretty pattern. You never miss the details! Kudos for making your own design when you didn't have something you loved for the project. :o) The butterfly and lace are stunning accents. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at My Craft Spot!
