This is done by sticking two petals totgether with a glue stick Let them dry. When you have made the 5 or 6 double petals, spread some glue down the right side of one petal and stick it to the next petal, making sure you overlap it see diagram below and continue until you have glued and overlapped all the petals in a circle. Glue the first and last petal together and overlap them as well.
Taper it to a point at the top. Glue the base and wrap round the step so that it stands along side it. Bend the stem just behind the bud case to turn the flower head sideways. Place thumbs in center and gently stretch the paper to form a curved "cup" - be careful not to tear the petal.
To make a narcissus follow the instructions for the daffodil, using white crepe paper for the petals, and orange or dark yellow crepe paper for the trumpet. Special instructions for the narcissus trumpet! Cut a piece of orange crepe paper, same as instructions for the daffodil trumpet. Then dip a paint brush into scarlet ink or paint and gently touch the cut edges of the trumpet only, until the edges are slightly scarlet don't sog them! Let this ink or paint dry before continuing to make the narcissus.
Make several daffodils and narcissi and put them in a nice pot or copper kettle, and you can keep spring with you for longer or until the dust brings on your allergies! Hi, I loved you daffodils and modified your design to make them for my best friends wedding shower.
I cut the dimensions in half and had them coming out of a triangle shaped favor box. They were a big hit! Thanks, jules.
Needed a crepe paper daffodil quickly and was very pleased to make just one- for Easter Bonnet tomorrow. Quite easy, thankfully as just gone midnight, but very effective! Like the way the petals are stuck together. May even win tomorrow! These are beautiful, and I appreciate the detailed instructions on making each petal and attaching it to the flower in progress.

The section that is folded over should be extremely narrow — it may be easiest to fold over a slightly larger section and then trim. Using the dotted lines on the template as a guide, fold each side toward the middle. The sides should be folded in the opposite direction as the top edge.
In other words, the top edge will fold back, and the sides will fold forward. Open up your stalk and dot glue along the back of the folded section on the right. Refold your stalk, bringing the sides back toward the middle. Press the front of the folded section on the left onto the back of the folded section on the right to make a long, flat tube. Allow a few minutes to dry. Add one or two small dots of glue to the bottom of your spathe on the back side of your stem.
Slip the stalk tube over the stem and push it up until it meets the bottom of the spathe. About halfway between the back of your flower and the point where the spathe meets the stalk, bend your pedicel or stem at a 45 degree angle.
To add color to the rim of the daffodil trumpet, gently scrape the rim edge with a marker. You can also color the whole trumpet, shading it using multiple colors. For this flower, I colored the bottom quarter in a light green, the middle half in gold, and the top quarter in orange and used the Copic colorless blender marker to blend the colors together. To make narcissus, use the smallest template set to make multiple tiny daffodils.
I prefer a lighter 20 gauge wire for these. For each flower, wrap the stems or pedicels to about 6 inches down. Bend each stem at a right angle and position each flower at your preferred height. Then bundle the stems together and wrap from about three inches below the lowest flower head to the base of the stem bundle. Attach a single spathe to the bundle just above the point where you began wrapping the bundle, and use the wider template G to add a peduncle or stalk just as you would for the daffodil. Straighten any cock-eyed trumpets. Gently push back any petals that are leaning in toward the center too much.
Straighten your spathe. Adjust the arrangement of your narcissus heads if necessary. There is something so relaxing and peaceful about these paper flower tutorials for me. I absolutely love these :.
