are super quick to make, and when you make a bunch of them they look
really nice! These can be displayed in a vase as a bouquet, or tied to
a gift package. These are a good craft for children, since
they are fast and easy to put together. All you need is
yellow tissue paper and a green "bendy" drinking straw.
marker or other similar sized
- Green "bendy" straw
Begin the tissue daffodils by cutting out a 5 inch x 5 inch
square from the yellow tissue paper.
Fold the square of tissue paper in half, and cut along the
crease to make two rectangles.
3. Place one rectangle aside for later. With the
other rectangle, place a thick marker (or another similar shaped
object) along one end, and roll the tissue paper around it.
Make sure to leave about half of the tissue paper hanging off
the marker, and twist this overhanging tissue tightly around the
marker, as shown.
Take the second rectangle of tissue paper and fold it in
half. Then fold it in half again, and then once again.
this folded rectangle upright and use the scissors to cut a petal shape.
6. Unfold the petal shape and make cut a little way in
between each petal, as shown.
Line up the thick marker along the petal edge and roll the
petals around the marker, like you did with the first sheet of tissue
paper. Twist the ends of the tissue paper again (HINT: wet
your fingers to make the ends twist more tightly).
Cut off part of the short end of a green bendy straw.
Add a drop of glue to the inside of the straw, then stick the
end of the flower into the straw, and allow to dry.
When dry, carefully slide the marker out of the flower.
Bend down and flare each tissue petal.
