Cute Daffodils

I finally have daffodils blooming in my yard.  I love creating these mini daffodils using Susan's Garden Patch Mini Daffodil dies.  I selected the cute Elizabeth Craft Designs Flower Cuties Peel Off Sticker to coordinate with the mini daffodils.  ECD Silk Microfine Diamond Glitter was used over Transparent Double Sided Tape and colored and the image colored with Copic Markers.  The image was backed with a piece of black card stock. 

 These little daffodils look like they might be hard to create but are very easy.  You glue the five bottom petals to the calyx (base) piece then roll the center and glue the edge to create the up right part; glue this piece in the center of the petals.  The stamen is then glued down in the flower.  I added Susan's Yellow Pollen to the ends of the stamens before gluing them in the flower.  One of the things that I think makes the daffodils look very real, is to use the self-closing tweezers and roll the top edge of the flower out to resemble a real daffodil; I think you can see the rolled edges in this photo.  The flowers were shaped using Susan's Flower Tool Set

I so love that card sized, smaller flower dies are now available. These daffodils are so pretty! Rolling the top edges does make a difference. Your hands create such beauty...Thanks!
