Here's my first paper flower. Doesn't she make you smile? Make a daisy garland with her and she will be oh so happy!
- 1 or 2 sheets of decorative paper
- Hot glue and gun
Cut a 2.5" diameter paper circle. Cut two strips of paper 2.5" x 12" long. You could use one long sheet of paper, but my paper was not as long as I needed. Fold both strips of paper in accordion style with each fold being a half inch. Stretch out the accordion. Using scissors, cut a triangle between each fold along one side of the accordion.
This is what it should look like with triangle cuts between all the folds.
Use hot glue to attach the ends of the paper together.
The paper will form a circle. Lightly press on the top of the form until flat. While holding the flower down, apply hot glue to the center. Place the paper circle in the center. For stability, hot glue a similar sized paper circle to the back.
This flower is about 5.5" in diameter. To make it smaller, change the width of the strips of paper to less than 2.5" wide.
The Real Deal: It cost less $1.00 to make this daisy.
