I just moved across the country from Minneapolis, MN to Tucson, AZ and I had to sell/give away all my craft and art supplies (and completed projects!).  I think I will like it here, but it has been SOOO depressing so far.  I am really struggling to adjust.

Anyway, my boyfriend brought me home some construction paper and I dug out some wire and floral tape and made these daffodils.  They aren't the most spectacular thing I have ever turned out, but was MAJORLY therapeutic to throw myself into something for a few hours.

It is nice to see an item that I created in my home.  These flowers remind me that it is only a matter of time before I will have a home that is personalized with my own style and creature comforts.





Thanks for looking!

XOXO
Zan

TUTORIAL:

Supplies Needed:

Paper (even construction paper works, but the fancier the paper the nicer they look)
Floral Wire (Michael's and the Paper Source both carry this)
Floral Tape

The picture below was suposed to be printable to scale, but it isn't posting properly.  If you can enlarge it to 8 1/2" by 11" you can use the petal cut outs as templates. 

My boyfriend meticulously created this for me.  He is such a nerd, I heart him.



If this is still too confusing-I saw on the paper source website that they sell daffodil kits.  I have used their other paper flower kits and they always come out great.

Happy Crafting!

XoXo
Zan

What a nice way to spruce up the place! Before you know it you'll be drowning in craft supplies again, funny how quickly things accumulate!

nice daffodils!  my favorite flower, too... mayhaps I will make some to decorate my new crafting room Smiley.  I live in Tucson, too--and I know someone that just moved here from the twin cities area (though I'm 99.8% sure she isn't you).  I'll bet its a difficult adjustment...there is so little GREEN around here (I'm from Maryland and then Hawaii) and it drives me crazy sometimes.  If you need a social outlet, I believe they have a stitch n bitch night at Rainbow planet coffee shop on 4th ave--monday nights?  Tucson weekly should have a listing for it.  Anyway, welcome to the desert!

So pretty!  I love flowers, real, paper or otherwise, and those are great!  Moving sucks, but I would suggest maybe join a club or something, meet some new people, that might help!
