Paper decor has a long history. In different periods, this versatile material was used to create figurines, masks, fans, handicrafts. Paper products were of particular importance in Japan. The inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun raised the process of creating crafts to the level of art. This is why the names of nearly half of the popular techniques come from Japanese.

Beautiful voluminous flowers made from paper for March 8 can turn out to be such that from afar it will be difficult to distinguish them from real spring flowers. Moreover, it is not so difficult to make such beautiful crafts - the main thing is to pick up all the necessary materials, carefully cut out the details of the future flower and follow the instructions.
Bulky flowers are best made from corrugated paper, as its uneven texture makes the flowers seem real. And since on March 8, women are often presented with exquisite and delicate daffodils, below we will tell you how to make these flowers out of paper. This craft is more complex and is designed for children from 7 years old, so children at school or kindergarten kids can make it with the help of a teacher.
To make a small bunch of 3 voluminous daffodils, you need to prepare white, yellow and green corrugated paper, glue, scissors and three strong wires of approximately the same length (they will be used as stems for flowers).
First you need to make the stems of future daffodils. It is necessary to cut thin strips from green corrugated paper, grease them from the wrong side with glue and wind them in a spiral onto a wire so that the edge of each next turn of paper overlaps the previous one. In the same way, you need to wrap and paste over the remaining two pieces of wire with paper, and then put the finished stems aside.
One daffodil flower will have 5 petals, which means that 15 white whales need to be cut out of white paper for 5 daffodils. To make them all the same shape, it is best to cut 15 rectangles of the same size from a sheet of white corrugated paper and put them in stacks of 5. Then you need to cut oblong petals with a pointed top edge from each stack of rectangles. The resulting petals need to be straightened and stretched a little vertically so that they turn out to be weightless and delicate.
Next, it remains to make the middle for the daffodils. To do this, cut out three thin strips from yellow paper, fold them in half lengthwise and twist them into tubes.
Daffodil flowers need to be glued together from petals and centers. To do this, first you need to glue the white petals together, and then gently glue the yellow pistils into the center.
To make corrugated paper daffodils look more like real ones, you need to cut leaves from green paper and stick them on the stems.
At the final stage, all that remains is to glue the flowers to the stems
And since the heads of real daffodils are turned to the side, and not up, it is also important to place paper flowers on the stems sideways, all the more so they will hold better. And to make the craft more accurate, the place where the flower is glued to the stem can be additionally sealed with a small circle of their green corrugated paper
To make a bunch of paper daffodils look more festive, you can tie it with a white ribbon or wrap it in double-sided colored paper in a bright color.
