Die Punched Leaves and Daiso Paper


Someone recently asked how I made the leaves for my 3D Daisy Cake. I punched paper with this flower punch, then snipped out 5 petals. Then I used my quilling needle to score a line in the middle and gently folded it in half before gluing under the daisies.


The paper I used comes from Daiso. Shades of red, orange, and yellow are sold in a pack called “Warm”, while blue, green, and lilac are “Cool”. This is a 5×7 inch size and several sheets of each color is included. Larger sizes are also available for the same amazingly affordable price of $2, but you get less sheets of each color. The weight is not too light, not too heavy – just fantastic for my accenting paper crafts. The color is carried out through the entire sheet,  not just printed on the surface, so you don’t get a incongruent core of white, especially if you plan to make your own flocking.
