How to Make Perfect Paper Daisiescomments (57) August 11th, 2008
Next, make eight (8) cuts as indicated in the illustration below. Each cut is about 1 inch long.
Next, fold each petal in half, lengthwise, as indicated by the dashed lines in the illustration below. There is no need to pre-score these folds since the added time and effort do not significantly improve the results. Just a simple crease will suffice.
Once you've finished creasing one disk, simply repeat these first three steps with all of your remaining disks. Blossoms are created by layering two (2) disks, one on top of the other, and affixing them with a dot of hot glue. Be sure to align them in such a way as to allow the petals on the bottom to peak through between the petals on the top.
For the centers of each flower, I simply took a narrow strip of yellow or pink paper about 1/8 inch x 18 inches, and wound it into a tight spiral disk and glued it in place. I finished each flower by affixing it to a length of floral wire with hot glue, and then wrapping the stems with green floral.
