Daffodils for Day of Reflection

Today marks one year on from the first UK lockdown, and the start of a National Day of Reflection.

Having lost someone close during this time, I will be reflecting during the day. My reflections will be for both me and my family, and for others who are also grieving.

Along with a minute of silence at 12 noon and shining a light at 8pm, another suggestion is to buy yellow flowers, Day of Reflection. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Rather than buy some flowers to mark the day, I have made some 3D punch art daffodils to put in my own window.

They are simply made from two punches, Perennial Flower Punch pieces in Daffodil Delight. It couldn’t be any other colour! The trumpets are from the Small Bloom Punch in Pumpkin Pie and the stems are strips cut from Granny Apple Green.

There are so many extra touches that could be added to them, from additional layers, inking the edges and different colour ways. But I wanted to keep mine simple and create the essence of daffodils, rather than be really precise.

If you want to make your own daffodils, the products I’ve used are listed below.

Happy crafting
