Make Daisy Stamen

To make the daisy stamen, cut a 2x6-inch piece of yellow crepe paper with the grain running vertically. Fold the crepe paper onto itself. Cut slits into the top 1 1/2 inches of the folded crepe paper to create fringe (image 1), and hold the end of floral wire up to the edge of the fringe (image 2). Wrap the fringe around the wire, and secure with floral tape (image 3).

Cut Out Daisy Petals

Cut a 24-inch piece of crepe paper, and fold the edge in 4 inches (image 1). Continue to fold the crepe paper until it meets the other end. Print out the daisy template, and match the bottom edge with the bottom edge of the folded crepe paper (image 2). Cut straight across the folded crepe paper near the top of the template, then cut around the template. Cut down between each petal (image 3), and unfold the crepe paper (image 4).

Complete Daisies

Line up the stamen with the edge of the petals (image 1). Wrap the petals around the stamen, crimping and pleating as you go (image 2). Secure with a long piece of floral tape once all petals are completely wrapped (image 3). Give each petal a realistic shape by pulling apart the crimps near the top of each one (image 4). Pull down the petals so the stamen is visible (image 5).
