Paper Flowers for Banner 19 freebie  

It's time to change our very large welcome banner in the fellowship area at church to a spring/summer theme. Pastor Ken and I have been working hard (and spending a fortune) planning a very special event for April 22nd as a community outreach. We are having a night of teaching about the Passover as it reveals Jesus Christ to us. We are going to have the Passover/Seder dinner along with the teaching so that everyone can experience this amazing insight that every Christian should have. You'll never see the Lord's Supper/Communion the same!
Given that we hope to have lots of visitors, I wanted the new welcome banner to be very bright and cheerful - flowers seemed the thing for spring and summer. I didn't want to paint again. It just didn't see special enough, so I've been designing and making all manner of paper flowers - 27 different blossoms in all. My table was a mountain of lovely blossoms - so happy to look at and that's not even all of them! I thought you might like to know how to make some of them, so for 27 days I'll be posting a tutorial for one of these lovely blossoms!
These pretty daffodils start with a circle of paper. Cut six slits from the edge of the circle toward the center. Put a dot of low melt glue on the right edge corner of a section and stick the left edge corner of the section to it's right on top of it. Work your way around the circle to form the center of the flower. If you want a small center, make your slits longer toward the center. If you want a wider center, make smaller slits toward the center.
Next take a small white coffee filter and cut the flat center out of it. Finger gather the inside edge and attach to the bottom of the center cup with low melt glue. you are attaching the center with the open side up.Using Martha Stewart's Hydrangea punch, punch three petals. Using your mouse pad and the rounded end of a paint brush, rub in the centers to shape petals.Glue three of the shaped petals into the center cup. You may want to trim the coffee filter to the width you want at this point. You can make a small carnation out of what you trim off simply by finger gathering and pinching the bottoms as you coil the strip around itself and secure with glue. No waste!
Here's a picture of the tiny carnation you can make from what you trim off the coffee filter.If you like it well enough to download, please leave me a comment at the bottom of this post as I have disabled 4shared comments.
