There are well over twenty thousand different species of daisies and what a lot of people do not know is that there is only one “real” daisy it is called the English daisy. The word “daisy” is a contraction of the phrase “Days Eye,” and references the fact that English daisies close at night and open their petals again at daylight. Daisies originated in northern Europe, but spread throughout Europe and to the Americas in the 1600s. English daisies have white, off-white, or sometimes slightly pink petals and a yellow center, with green stems and leaves.”

“The daisy was said to spring from the tears of Mary Magdalene. It was known as Gods smile and Days eye, an Angle Saxon name which had morphed to the current word daisy. This is because the flower opened and closed with the suns rays. In magic, it would be used in any fair weather spells or rites to honor the Sun. The daisy was associated with Venus, commonly used as a lovers divination, plucking the petals whilst chanting s/he loves me, s/he loves me not. Medieval knights wore daisy chains made for them by their Ladies when they rode into battle or tournaments, as a sign of their affection and defense of their Ladies honor. “Mary Magdalene is also associated with the carnation and the rose. There are many beautiful and heartwarming stories about the daisy.

A paper flower daisy is one of the funniest flowers to make for paper flower makers for some it is a challenge because of all the little petals and for others it is a way to allow their colorful imagination to shine through. Because daisies are relatively small unless of course when using crepe paper to make them you can make them as large as life ~ if you are making daises for a centerpiece of a wedding bouquet you will need to make a lot of them unless they are part of a much larger floral arrangement but be warned there is a good chance your daisies may get lost among the other flowers. If you do not want your daisies to get lost we recommend enlarging the pattern or using the daises as a center for the arrangement or outline the centerpiece or bouquet with the daises.

Paper flower daises are a wonderful addition to any floral arrangement whether it is for a centerpiece for your home or wedding or part of your bridal bouquet. Daisies are also a popular flower for the hair. In the 60s and early 70s many brides adorned their hair with daisies. If you are one that does not like the traditional bridal veil then make some paper flowers and use them either throughout your hair or make a crown of flowers to circle your head.
