How to Make A (Super Easy) Paper Daisy!

I love paper flowers!  I have a vintage book from Dennison and also a new book full of paper flower how-tos.  It seems like I never have enough time to sit down and actually make any of them.  When I decided on a daisy sucker cover for this project, I looked through both of them.  The daisies are so very pretty, but kind of time consuming.   I was whining (I mean mentioning, of course) about it to Dennis and he remembered making these easy daisies in school.  Seriously???   I don't have a memory like that.  I remember very little about grade school and if I even remembered making a daisy, I wouldn't have a clue how we actually did it!

So are you wondering how to make the daisy?  Here's a video to show just how easy it is:

You could make a bunch of these daisies in no time.  You can make even bigger daisies than I show in the video.  Just use a larger rectangle.   I give a couple of tips in the video if you want to use the daisy as a sucker cover like I did.

If you're like me, you probably think the vintage valentine is really sweet.  I've got it for you to download below.  (The sentiment, too!) 

Valentine Kits became available today.  The I Pick You Treat Box is one of them.  If you would like to see all the kits, click on the Choux Box Kits Club Link at the top of the page and sign up.   When MailChimp notifies me, I'll send you the pictures and info.  You should see the darling Flair Tin PIns! 

You can download the sweet daisy girl valentine and sentiment HERE.

Challenge #3 is now open!  You can get all the info and link your images HERE.

Happy Creating!
