Featured
Happy spring instructavillians!  What a great way to keep flowers alive and fresh all year long than to make them out of paper!  There are several uses for making papercraft flowers, in this instructable I will be using them to make a wall hanging for mothers day.

Take your daffodil pattern.  Take the small part of the pattern (The throat) and roll the inside petals.  Roll the throat into a cylinder and glue together.  Use a paperclip to hold the flower in place while your glue dries.   Cut the outside of the flower and slightly roll the end of the  flower.    Put glue on the fold tabs on the throat and pates them to the petals.

Step 4: Poppy

Cut out your poppy using your template.

Cut along the solid line to the middle.  Fold on the dotted lines.

Curl the end of the petals with your fingers, toothpick, paper clip or other small object

Overlap the two bottom petals and glue together.  Once glued together you can paper clip the flower together to let it dry.  You might need to trim the two petals that were glued together to make them uniform.

Step 5: Lily
