Paper Daffodils

 Happy Saturday evening my friends.
Hope all is going well for you.

I created these paper daffodis 2 years ago
when we launched our gift shop.
They all sold at that time.
It was then that I knew customers were
looking for handmades.
I decided to make more again this year.
These are my patterns.

Once I cut what looks like a 6 sided star,
I fold each petal in half.

I also fold over the inner piece.
Using simple Elmers School glue, 
I glue the pieces.
I use the kind that is purple when applied
and dries clear.

The finished project.

Made these in all yellow,
and some in white and yellow cardstock paper.

Lastly also these ones in pink and white.
I sold so many this year,
that I am not even sure if there are any left.

In other news,
I went to my mom's yesterday after work.
We each had a salmon dinner at the restaurant in town.
I went up there to do some antiquing.
The three stores were having a Spring sale.
Bob was going to work the gift shop for me.
Well he called me at 8:30 this morning
and said our worker called in sick at our antique store.
So I was only able to go to one store and then
Rushed back to town to work the gift shop.
I was late opening, but oh well.

I did bring back three cool items.
An old hooked rug, a makedo light 
and an early white pitcher.
Will show these in another post.
Saundra I will make sure I take a pic of the back too.

Well am going to watch a bit of tv now.
Hope everyone has a great weekend,
what's left of it!

Paper Daffodil Blessing To All!
