I love making this paper daisy flower plant. It was a bit challenging making these daisy templates to cut out. I’ve included the daisy template pdf and
svg files in this tutorial. These are free printable daisy flower templates.
Because there are many petals, I prefer making this one on the Cricut.
But if you don’t have a Cricut, it is still possible to make them by hand.

Step 4: Wrap the larger strip around the smaller strip and position the petals so they are offset
Step 5: Curl the petals
