May Bulletin Board: Wordsworth

I know I did a poetry bulletin board last month, but I figured another was in order!  Since April was about rain and showers, I thought May should be about flowers!  The first poem that came to mind was Wordsworth's I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.

I thought, what can I do to make the daffodils 3-D?  Hmmm, cupcake liners!  I just Googled for a flower template, then used the cupcake liners for the center.  A colleague suggested green straws from a certain coffee chain could be used as "stems".  Here's a close-up of the flowers:
I used 11x17" paper stuffed with shredded paper to make the cloud.

May your May be filled with beautiful flowers!
