Simple Paper Daisy
July 19th, 2010 by Craftylocks

A flower theme is perfect for paper crafts. This flower is easy and speedy to make, not just for children, but crafters of any age.

The technique used for this daisy is easy to adapt for other flowers. Start with a circle and draw a face in the center.


Cut lines from the outside to the face edge.


Fold every second ‘petal’ to the back of the flower. If like I did, you end up with the wrong amount of ‘petals’, you will need to cut another line in to create another ‘petal’ and then fold them back.


Pinch all the folded back ‘petals’ together and wrap a pipe cleaner around them to hold them together and to create the stalk.


A perfect wee paper craft daisy.

Hi Teresa, I had not even noticed that this one would be a fabulous way to practice with scissors – so thanks so much for the comment. I hope that she had fun!
Happy scissoring,

This is the PERFECT thing for me to do this afternoon with my 3 year old. She is just gotten obsessed with her new safety scissors and it doesn’t look like it will strain mommy’s brain too much.
