Did you know that the face of a sunflower follows the sun? What a cheery creation these bright, joyous flowers are! I love recreating sunflowers in paper crafting, and this accent flower is gorgeous for so many things.
Simple shapes are all you need, such as a circle and a heart. And, the great color choices from CutCardStock too!
Here is a demo of how this project comes together:
I’m using the Astrobright Solar Yellow paper for this project. It would be great to add some colors for dimension, like a Canvas Textured Adobo Orange. To add additional dimension, try sponging some colored inks on to the tips of the petals after assembling.
Depending on the size of dies you use, you could make a variety of sizes. I even would recommend cutting full size hearts from an 8.5” by 11” if you’d like to try your hand at a full size flower!
You’ll notice I used a wet glue for this project. It’s also possible to use a glue gun, and would adhere quickly without using clips. Make sure you have one with a low-temperature setting.
Twine is laid down in the base circle prior to adding the petals and can either be accents or used as a hanger or banner instead. This would also look good strung across twine like a banner as well.
Where will you add these flowers in your decorating? Feel free to pin this idea on Pinterest for the next time you are looking for a handmade bow or home decor accent. And let me know which of the CutCardStock colors you might choose for your project!
Wishing you sunny days ahead! Until next time!
