Paper Daisy

Hi Everyone, today I have the last flower from the flower bouquet I made for Mothers Day. I love this flower and someday I might make a whole bouquet of just daisies in different colors.

I made the daisies from the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge, in various sizes. I started by rolling and gluing the center to a 16 gauge wire I was using as the stem. I rolled the yellow center on wire. I then put the daisy together by gluing one petal under another the one next to it to give it a 3d affect and not be flat. I then glued the petals to the center, ok, this sounds much harder than it actually was. Watch the video, it is easy. The hardest part was covering the wire with floral tape, but it is worth it.

Here is the video.
