Paper Daffodils

Image Source/Tutorial: Make and Takes

Start with cutting a circle from yellow paper. To make five petals, cut little triangles around the circular. My petals were free-hand, but my girls preferred to sketch them out first before cutting. Cut wavy edges to add a little more detail to your flowers. Roll a pencil along each petal to curl them up a little more. For your background, use colorful paper and create or paste a stem for your daffodil.

Glue the petals to the backdrop paper as well. Now it’s time to concentrate on the daffodil’s fun 3-D center. Using yellow or orange construction paper, cut a rectangle. Our pieces were around 4 inches tall and 6 to 8 inches long. Slits should be cut along the longer length of your rectangle, leaving one end uncut. Roll the paper around the block, leaving the uncut end dangling. Apply a dab of adhesive to keep it in place. Apply a small amount of adhesive to the last section before folding it.
Apply a sufficient amount of glue to the bottom of the flower center and press it down in the middle of the petals with the block.
