Crepe Paper Daffodil How-To
1. Download daffodil template, enlarge 200 percent, print, and cut out.

2. With paper clips, secure each element of the template to an appropriate shade of crepe paper, aligning the arrows with the grain of the paper. Cut out with scissors in the quantity indicated and trim top of trumpet piece with pinking shears.

3. To create stem, wrap together three 18-inch pieces of 18-gauge paper-wrapped floral wire with floral tape.

4. To create the bulbous bottom portion of the trumpet, place thumbs and forefingers together in the center of the trumpet piece, 3 inches from the bottom. Applying light pressure and moving outward, pull toward either edge, stretching the crepe paper as you go.

5. Run a bead of Fabri-Tac adhesive down one long edge of the trumpet, and bring edges together to make a cylinder.

6. Fold and pinch bottom of cylinder to top of stem, and secure in place with floral tape.

7. Insert hand into cylinder, and use fingers to shape the base of the trumpet.

8. Stretch pinked edge of trumpet against the grain of the crepe paper, and curl down with fingers.

9. Evenly space three petals around the base of the trumpet and secure in place with floral tape. Repeat with the remaining three petals.

10. With floral tape, attach each leaf to a 15-inch length of 20-gauge plain floral wire. Use more floral tape to secure each leaf to the daffodil stem.
