I am a co-leader of my daughter's Girl Scout troop and we had her very last meeting as a Daisy this week (sniff!!) and to commemorate the final meeting I came up with this super-simple Daisy craft for the girls. And today, I'm sharing it with you too! Please let me show you How to Make an Easy Paper Daisy!
Aren't they so cute?! There are so many possibilities of ways to use these little paper flowers.
I attached mine to clothespins so they could clip on to almost everything!
You can set them around as sweet little decor accents…
Or attach them to a book as a bookmark!
It can also transform a plain stack of notecards into an adorable instant-gift!! Great when you need a quick hostess gift!
They even look sweet when worn! My daughter has been having so much fun wearing hers!!

SUPPLIES TO MAKE AN EASY PAPER DAISY
To make these you need:
- White cardstock
- Yellow cardstock
- Green cardstock
- Glue dots or glue gun
- Template (free! Members click here. Not signed up yet? Click the link at the bottom of this post to get yours!)

- Scissors (only if you do not have a cutting machine)
HOW TO MAKE AN EASY PAPER DAISY
DOWNLOAD THE TEMPLATE
First, you need to download the template. Once you have the template, you need to cut out the flower shapes. I have included a PDF for those of you who do not have a cutting machine like a Cricut, Silhouette, etc.
GENTLY “BEND” THE FLOWERS
To assemble the flower, I recommend you start with the first bloom. Slightly bend the leaves along their length to give them a bit of dimension. Repeat with the second bloom. Then, bend the yellow “petals” gently toward their center.
Using either a glue dot or a glue gun, attach the leaf to the clothespin. Then place the first white flower on top of the leaf.
Add the next flower on top of the first flower – be sure to turn it so that the petals are NOT overlapping. Turning will make your flower look more “full.”
Add the yellow piece with petals next in the center and top with the small yellow “center.”
A sweet and simple Paper Daisy!
I hope you will give this simple craft a try! It really is easy to do and there are so many possibilities!
If you are new to paper crafting, this is a great STARTER PROJECT!!!
