It's Spring here in the UK... this 'Spring Flower' was inspired by daffodils growing in my garden.

Very nIce work! Can the petals be used like paperclips allowing you to insert signs or business cards in between them? It'd work great in a florist's shop.

Thanks Smile

As it is the model is too top heavy with just one business card... but that can change, thanks for the idea Smile

@stop4stuff I like your use of SF here. Smile

The stem of the flower looks like it would be very springy. Is the material actually thick enough that the position stays fixed?

Tthat's wild, Paul!

Find a screw or bolt that's the right diameter to cut its own threads into the inner walls of your 'stem' coil and screw it into the base. That should drastically lower the centre of gravity and keep it from toppling over.

It'd look cool as a business card holder with a card clipped in each 'petal'.

Yes, yes it does. Smile

Are you familiar with the ridiculous phenomenon known as dashboard bobble heads? Your Spring Flowers would make such a cool replacement!
