Paper Daffodil Tutorial and Templates

Paper Flowers

I have a row of Daffodils right outside my house and they are so pretty during the Springtime when they are in full bloom.

I designed these paper daffodils to the ones right outside the house. I even used my super expensive shimmer cardstock because they are that special.

It’s a shame you can’t see the shimmer on the cardstock that well in the photo, they are really pretty in person.

I like using these in wall art and shadow boxes so my technique putting them on stems is not perfect. But if you are making a large bouquet and the base is hidden, then it doesn’t matter much.

Recommended Materials For Paper Daffodils

*this article contains affiliate links for your convenience, see full disclosures here

Cardstock – For paper flowers, I like using medium weight cardstock with a colored core. It flexes easily and the edges match the petal color

Best deals on recommended cardstock:

Glue – I use Tacky Glue

Floral Wire and Tape – I actually just use green masking tape like this one. There are lots of floral stems and wire options.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

Template – I’ve included my Paper Lily templates in my resource library.

    Tutorial for making Paper Daffodils

    Step 1: Cut out all the pieces from the template

    Step 2: Glue the petals and center piece in the loop. Make sure the base of the centerpiece is small so it can slot into the petal loops.

    I just fold out the petals but you can curl them if you’d like. I also offset the inner loop a bit but that is up to you.

    Step 3: Stack each piece on top of each other and glue the base.

    Step 4: Prep the floral wire if that is what you are going to use. I like to string the wire through the base of the flower and then make a loop it keeps it there.

    Step 5: I then use some masking tape to hold the base in place while the glue sets.

    I’ve also included an extra base leaf piece if you want to glue that on as well. Here is the photo of that option from another flower I did.
