Take your sheet of A4 paper and lay it flat on the table

Roll the paper diagnolly into a tight tube. You can start off by making a small fold to make it easier.

If it's not tight straight away unroll and try again, it's easier the second time.

Secure with some sticky tape.

Cut off one end of your crepe paper (about 3 inches deep) and unroll it.

Roll it back up over 5 times to the width of your petals (about 2 inches for the outer petals).

Cut another length of crepe paper about 1 1/2 deep, enough to make a roll of 10 inner petals.

Cut out your petal shapes (see photo) leaving the bottom half intact.

Unroll your petals and gently stretch the crepe paper between your thumb and forefingers to make them look more realistic. Take care not to rip them.

Take the smaller of the two rolls, secure with sticky tape about half way down the petal to your paper stem that you made earlier.

Start off rolling them quite tightly to cover the stem getting looser as you roll and gathering the paper slightly. Secure with sticky tape.

Next take your outer petals and secre with sticky tape over the inner petals.

Now you need to gather all of the petals so that they only wrap around the stem once.

Cut off a legth of green crepe paper about 8 inches long and wide enough to make 5 or 6 leaves.

Cut out the leaf pattern (see photo). Gently stretch them between your thumb and forefingers as before.

Attach the leaves along the length of the stem with sticky tape and wrap them around but not too tightly.

Bend the stem just below the petals and there you have your first daffodil.
