Tutorial: crepe paper daisies

I found some crepe paper, and this colorful and verstile stuff inspired me!
I thought I'd use it to make flowers, I already feel like spring with these beautiful sunny days we have in this January, here in Italy.

I started from a very simple flower to realize: daisy

Crepe paper daisies

Daisy is symbol of innocence, simplicity, freshness, purity and sensibility.


- Glue
- Scissors
- Wire
- Yellow, white, green crepe papers

From yellow crepe paper cut a stripe 8" long and 0,8" high and cut many fringes

Make a loop in the wire

Stick the fringe around the wire with the glue

From white crepe paper cut a stripe 12" long and 1,5" high and cut some fringes

Stick the white stripe around the yellow one

From green crepe paper cut a stripe and use it to wrap around the cup and the stem of the flower

Bend the petals downward

Cut a retangle from green crepe paper to do the leave

And cut it as shown in the image below:

And here is the finished daisy...

I made also a daisy with orange paper inside and  bigger petals

See you tomorrow with a project to realize a dahlia!
