The Daisy Experiment

My first experiment with making daisies started with a 3/8 inch flower punch. I whipped these up in no time. (Two hours)

They didn't look like daisies to me. So I decided to take a different approach. I hand cut some petals and glued them one by one to the center. The outcome is a really strange looking "flower" that is too big to be a daisy.

This morning I remembered the "leftovers" that Casey sent to me a long time ago. She sent me lots of little flower parts. Some of them are daisy petals! :D

If you poke the photo you can see the lovely little quilled zinnias that Casey made.

I tried again to make a daisy using Casey's petals. I didn't use my magnifier lamp and wasn't wearing my contacts, just my reading glasses. When I finished my flower I realized that the petals were pink and not white! Well, most of them are pink. Somehow some white ones got in there too. LOL

I definitely need more practice! So, the daisy experiment will continue. Thanks Casey for sending me all the right parts. I hope I can make some proper daisies with them!?

Hope you have a beautiful day!

I think the flowers looks great.

what if you did a double layer of the ones in the first photo- you know with the bottom layer offset a bit so you had more petals? I think they all look great and after popping up the picture bigger I really want to try making those zinnias! How smart of Casey! I think all of your attempts look nice Kathi :)

Kathi, I was just going to suggest the same thing that Kim did, but she beat me to it!LOL Kim, if you read this, there is a tutorial for the zennias somewhere in the plants section on my blog.

LoL Kathi. They all turned out really well especially since you did not have your contacts in.
