It was time for some new paper flowers to usher in the spring around here.  If you have been here long, you know I am a fan of making paper roses.  I decided to switch it up a bit and create daisies this time.  For a cheap, simple and beautiful DIY spring decor idea, look no further.  These would be great for weddings and other centerpieces too!

For this project, you don’t need much.  I used my SIZZIX machine and a flower die, but a die cut machine is not necessary.  You could easily do this with a paper punch too.

Supplies:

 Sizzix Flower Layers and Leaves Die

White Cardstock

Yellow Quilling paper

Paper quilling tool or toothpick

Craft glue (I use Glossy Accents for paper to paper since it dries in 5 sec and holds great)

Floral wire

Floral tape

Hot glue gun

Cut several 8 petal flower shapes, either from a paper punch or die.  You will use 2 of the shapes per daisy.

How to make paper daisies

Fold each petal lengthwise, as close to the center as you can get.

Once your petals are folded, stack one flower shape on top of another, adhering with glue, such that the petals are alternating (see pic below).

For the center of the flower, coil yellow quilling strips using a quilling tool or toothpick.  I used 2 strips of quilling paper for each flower center.  When one ends, just glue the second there and continue coiling.

Glue flower center in place.

Make a bend in the end of your floral wire to create surface for hot glue to grab and glue wire to flower back.

To finish, I wrapped my wire with floral tape.  This is not essential.  I just like the look of the wrapped wire better.
