You can’t beat a colorful flower craft. It’s one of our favorite craft subjects this time of year. Especially when it’s as easy as cutting and folding paper like our Easy Paper Daisy Craft!
This Paper Daisy Craft uses only 3 supplies. You will need construction paper in your choice of colors plus green, glue, and scissors. Easy peasy and perfect for little hands!
In fact, this Paper Daisy Craft would be a great landing zone for our Accordion Fold Butterflies. Or, if you’re looking for even more flower crafts, there’s our Egg Carton Flowers, Craft Stick Sunflower, Milk Jug Flowers, Shimmery Flower Coasters, and Rainbow Flower Suncatcher Craft, just to name a few.

Choose a color for the flower and cut a strip out of it. I used a 24 cm x 4 cm strip. Fold the strip into half lengthwise. Fold the strip into half lengthwise once again. Use scissors to create a zigzag edge along any one sides of the folded paper’s length. I did 6 zigzag cutouts along the edge of the folded paper.
Unfold the 2 folds previously done. We now have 24 zigzags along the edge of the strip. Since we need odd numbers of zigzags on the strip for the flower, trim any one zigzag from either side. Now neatly create accordion folds on the strips, using the zigzag edge as the guideline for the accordion folds. Continue to make accordion folds until reaching the other end of the strip.
Take the accordion folded paper and apply a small amount of glue on any one side. Bring the other side of the strip and join it with the glued part neatly. Place the accordion folded paper roll on a flat surface.
Cut out 2 circles from yellow craft paper and apply glue on them before flattening the paper. Press the top end of the accordion folded paper roll and push it towards the center. Place the glued circle on the center of the pressed accordion folded paper and carefully flip the pattern and glue the other glued circle on the other side of it. Hold and press the circles firmly for a few seconds until the glue is dried.
Cut out a stem and a leaf pattern from green cardstock paper. Glue the leaves onto the stem pattern and the flower on the top end of the stem.
