Instructions for making your cupcake liner daffodils

1. Open up and flatted out your yellow cupcake liners. Using your scissors, cut six slits around the perimeter of each cupcake liner to create daffodil flower petals. Make sure to stop each of your cuts when they reach the inside circle of the cupcake liner.

2. Cut a stem out for each of your flowers from a green piece of cardstock paper.

3. Make a fold in your green cardstock paper to cut out your flower leaves. Then cut out half of a leaf shape along the folded edge. Open up your paper to reveal your daffodil leaf. Cut out two leaves for each flower.

4. Add glue on the back circle of each yellow cupcake liner and glue them onto a light blue piece of cardstock paper, near the top one-third of the paper.

5. Glue your flower stems and leaves onto your flower.

When we glued on our leaves, we added a line of glue directly down the middle and glued them onto our flower without pressing down the sides of the leaves. This helps to leave a fun 3-D look with the leaves popping off the page slightly.
