book page daffodils spring time project


 daffodils in england always seem to be the first sign of spring, when they first start to appear, you know that spring and easter is not far away, so i thought it was fitting for a spring time projects. these would look great on a spring mantal display they were really simple and easy to make and i love book page projects, so heres how to do it:



what you need
book pages
scissors
pinking shears
glue gun
pencil or straws
tape


first you need to cut out the petals for the daffodils, they need to be roughly the same size, then you need to roll the edges of the petals, i used a thin stick to roll the paper around.
next you need to cut out the circles for the middle of the flower and and use the pinking shears to make the zig zag cut. then cut a line into the centre of the circle, and roll up into a cone shape, and glue. put thecentre of your flower face down and start adding the petals with glue. then you need to make the stem, i used an unsharpened pencil and covered it with a book page, i attatched one side of the book page with tape, then i rolled the paper around it and glued it, then i glued it to the back of the flower her and put a petal over it to hide the top of it.
