Print Friendly and PDF
Here's an idea for a delightful daisy (card stock tear art instructions)

What you will need:

Card stock material list...

Pretty Pink  card stock for petals

Non Card Stock Material List
1. Coordinating center button
2. Fast set glue or use a hot glue gun suitable for card stock
3. Optional micro glass beads or clear glitter to achieve a "dew" look on each card stock leaf

Card Stock Petals

1. Trace five (5) petals onto Pretty Pink  card stock using the pattern provided below.

2. With the Vivid side of the card stock facing you, tear along the outside edge of each of the five traced petal patterns, tearing the paper towards you.

3. Dip each card stock petal into water and pat off excess water with a paper towel. Each card stock petal should be damp but not wet. Pinch the narrow end of each petal until it forms a spoon-like shape.

4. While the card stock petal is still damp, curl the edges of the petals (either outward or inward) by rolling the edge of the card stock petal between your fingers. Once you have the curl you want, allow the petal to dry. Card stock will dry very quickly and will hold the shape. This easy craft idea technique only works with card stock.

5. Once dry glue the petals together to make a flower using a glue gun of paper glue. Place a small spot of glue on the pinched end of one petal and stick it to the pinched end of another petal. Repeat until all petals are in place.

1. Trace and tear two (2) leaf shapes from the Spring Green card stock.

2. Dip each leaf in water and pat dry as noted above with the cards stock petals. Pinch the ends of each leaf and then curl one of the pointed ends to the desired shape. Allow the card stock to dry.

3. Put glue on the non-curled pinched end and glue it either underneath or between the petals.

1. Glue coordinated button of your choice to the center of your card stock flower.

2. For few "dew drops" on the petals, apply a light line of glue to the edge of some of the petals. While the glue is still wet, sprinkle clear micro glass beads or glitter onto the glue. Allow to dry before handling.

3. Now admire your beautiful card stock flower made with DoubleMates card stock. Experiment with colors and layout to make your card stock garden grow.
