Next, using one daffodil petal-gently fold it into a cone and glue together only at the top opening. Make sure to leave a small opening at the tip of the cone The opening should be big enough to fit your stem into the opening, leaving minimal space (the opening size is dependent on the type of material used to create the stem).
*Using the remaining six daffodil petals.
Layout the six unfolded daffodil petals in a close circle, slightly overlapping the sides of each petal until you have a small circle remaining in the middle.
Place the folded cone (pointed end) through the center of the hole.
Next, slide your stem through the tip of your cone and apply a small amount of hot glue to the bottom of the cone gluing from the inside of the cone.
To prevent burning your hand with hot glue, cut out a circle approximately one inch in size (using yellow construction paper or card-stock) and cut a hole approximately the thickness of your stem in the middle of the circle. Slip the stem through the hole and slide it approximately a quarter inch from the top of the stem. Now, you have a protective barrier to protect you fingers in case the hot glue seeps through the tip of the cone. Immediately after hot gluing from the inside of the daffodil, slide the circle all the way up to the back of the daffodil to adhere.
Using green construction paper or card-stock, draw two long, thin stem petals and cut out.
