Pop Up Daffodils for St David’s Day – Step by Step Instructions
Begin by decorating the background of your Pop Up Daffodil Card. We chose plain blue and plain green paper. But you can use anything you want. I think turning this into a mixed media craft with watercolours and pens would be gorgeous. You could later add details such as bees and lady birds too!
We simply cut out a rectangle that measured 1cm less both width and length wise and glue it down with a glue stick!
The Paper Daffodil Petals
Cut out six yellow daffodil petals from your yellow paper. We sketched out one and cut out the rest in one go.
Cut a yellow disc.
Glue this into the centre of your card and then arrange the six daffodil petals around it and glue in place.
The Paper Daffodil Centre
One your orange paper mark out the HEIGHT you wishe for your pop up daffodil centre (ours is approximately 5cm?), then ADD ONE CENTIMETER to this.
Cut a long rectangle – 5cm + 1cm + the length you wish. Again we didn’t have an exact measure, we just turned the strip on itself until we had a length we liked.
Cut a wave into the top of your orange retangle.
Glue the strip together to make an orange tube.
Now flatten it. The folds you create, will be the folds you need for the card.
Once the tube is flattened. Cut out two orange tabs in the exact centre – about 5-8mm wide. They have to be in the CENTRE and opposite each other.. otherwise you will later have problems opening and shutting your card!
Fold these little flaps inwards.
Position the orange centre on the card and glue in place.
