How to make Realistic Daffodils
The way to make some realistic florals have landed, with our latest Daffodil die set.
Theme: Flowers, Plants & Trees
Other Supplies: Balsa Wood Ball Beads, Floral Tape, Floral Wire
- Die-cut out of Limoncello cardstock two flower petals, out of Mango Tango cardstock one flower funnel, out of Banana Blast cardstock one flower center and out of Green Tea cardstock a few leaves from the Daffodil Bigz die.
- Gently fold along the embossed crease line on each flower petal and shape the petals to create realistic dimensions.
- Layer and adhere the two sculpted flower petals together with liquid adhesive.
- Pierce a small hole into the center of the flower with a die pick. (Note: This is where the wire will sit once the flower is complete.)
- Fold along the embossed crease lines on the die cut flower funnel element.
- Apply liquid adhesive to the side tab of the flower funnel and align the tab with the straight edge on the other end to adhere the two ends together. Apply adhesive to the base tab sections to the flower funnel and adhere the funnel to the center of the flower.
- With a stylus tool and the gray molding mat from the Paper Sculpting Kit, sculpt the flower center and then adhere it inside of the flower funnel with liquid adhesive.
- Insert floral wire in the hole created by the die pick at the base of the flower and adhere it into place with a bit of hot glue.
- Thread a balsa wood ball onto the floral wire and adhere the ball to the base of the flower with hot glue.
- Wrap floral tape around the balsa wood ball and work the tape down the wire until the ball and wire is covered in florist tape.
