We are working on the April flower, the Daisy download the simple Daisy SVG for free, and let's get crafting!

This is the fourth flower in my Flowers of the Year series and I am so happy to be adding these new 3-D digital files every month to my website. So far the four flowers I have made are super beginner-friendly so if you are afraid to try out paper flowers, I promise you they are easier than you think. so simple but yet so beautiful and I'm glad that they are the flower for April. you can add these onto welcome signs, or you can add on floral wire to make them stand up in a vase, they are a great addition to homemade cards, and would even look great on a cake topper.

Mobile users turn your phone or watch the YouTube video here.

Craft Supplies Needed:

  • A cutting machine – either a Cricut or a Silhouette machine, I ended up cutting this with both my Silhouette and my Cricut maker.
  • Card stock paper – for paper flowers. I tend to use a lighter pound card stock like 65 and not textured, but I always leave card stock colors and weights and textures up to you.
  • Glue – for this project, I ended up using hot glue but you can also use craft glue if that's what you prefer
  • Tweezers – I like to say this is optional. It's just for rolling up your flower center, but you can also use a quilling tool.
  • Bone tool – I highly suggest this tool, but again this is optional. It's for detailing the petals on your daisy.

Cricut Design Space Set Up

I like to say this is another one of my easy free items where you just download from my website and upload into your design software, then all you have to do is resize and send to be cut.

Make sure to resize the entire file if you are changing the size here, the original design is about 2 1/2 inches wide, and daisies in real life can be anywhere from 2 inches to 4 inches so have fun making these unique.

Once you have everything set up to be cut you can up the copies, and I like to cut using the medium cardstock setting on my Cricut.

Silhouette Users

This setup is going to be extremely similar to the cricket setup, the first thing you're going to want to do is to resize the whole file and duplicate as necessary.

From there when I'm cutting with my Silhouette machines, I like to use the section and make sure everything is nested nicely. I cut one color and then I send the next color to be cut. My biggest thing with using my Silhouette cutting machines is that you always have to test your materials because materials as well as just the general type of cut or design might not work from the original settings. So make sure you are testing all original designs.

I will have to say cutting this with my Silhouette cameo was easy to figure out for the petals, but for the center, I struggled with perfect cuts because of all those bumps, but I never gave up. Just keep trying and figuring out I always feel like failure leads to success in the long run as long as you don't give up.

Assembly of the Free Daisy SVG Cut File

Step one is to add in any details with your bone tool, I use the sharp end of the bone tool and add little lines to all of the petals. There is no fancy way or professional way to do this. It's just some lines on each pedal which I think makes them super unique.

Step two, you want to slightly curl your petals with your fingers. Daisies are relatively straight so you don't need to do too too much here.

Step three, You will glue the two layers of the daisy petals so that there are no gaps in the spaces in between the petals. You're just going to slightly twist the top away from the bottom one and I ended up using hot glue for this as well.

Step four is to create your center. I started piece by piece with the shorter of the bumps in the center. You can opt for two or three of the shorter bumps followed by larger bumps.

I think overall, I prefer the two over the three, but I want to give you the option. I also preferred wrapping them individually rather than a long chain.

You can glue down the center to the Daisy layers.

Finally, I like to fluff out my outer bumps in the center so that it gives a little more texture to the 3-D flower.

From here, you can add on wire if you want, these are so fun to make. If you're new to making a papercraft project, I believe that paper flowers are such a great way to dive in because they open up your creativity in so many ways. You can make these daisies in all different colors and all different sizes and they will make your papercraft project come to life.

I hope you enjoyed making these papers Daisy, flowers with me, and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions down below.
