Paper Sunflower Craft 4



This is such a fabulous paper sunflower craft. I love this time of year when the sunflowers all looking glorious in the garden and standing proud.  So why not take inspiration from them to make some beautiful paper sunflowers.  They look fabulous on cards or if you take a straw on the back you can have a bunch of sunflowers for a vase or give as a gift.

Paper Sunflower Craft

We normally plant sunflowers in our garden every year but this year we are building a new patio so don’t have any.  Instead, I am satisfying my need for them with these beautiful textural paper sunflowers. Paper Sunflower Craft

I have made this really easy for you to make and have a template for you to trace or to print on to coloured card and cut.

List of Supplies need for your paper sunflower craft:

  1. Coloured craft paper– Yellow, brown and green
  2. Scissors
  3. Craft glue
  4. Pencil – to trace the template
  5. Paper Sunflower Craft Template

How to make Paper Sunflowers

Paper Sunflower Craft

Print and cut out the patterns from the template. Trace the patterns on the selected coloured craft papers and cut them out. The template includes one large flower pattern, one medium flower pattern and one small flower pattern, you’ll need to trace and cut out 2 pieces from the yellow craft paper for the large and small pattern; and 2 pieces of the small pattern from the brown craft paper. Also, cut out the spiral pattern from the brown craft paper and the leaf patterns from green craft paper.

Paper Sunflower Craft

Take a flower pattern and create creases on them. First, create a crease from the centre towards the tip of each petal. Next, create a crease in between each petal and towards the centre.

Similarly, create a crease on the rest of the flower patterns (2 large yellow and 2 medium yellow flower patterns).

Create a crease on the 2 small brown flower patterns as well. Take the spiral pattern and start rolling it from its outer end. Continue to roll towards the centre and once you reach the centre glue the roll with the centre of the spiral pattern to secure it. Create a crease on the leaf cutouts as well.

Paper Sunflower Craft

Place any one of the large sized flower patterns on a flat surface and drop a small amount of glue on its centre of it.

Place the other large sized flower pattern on the large flower, making sure that the centres of both flowers match; and also slightly rotate the second pattern so that the tips of the first flower pattern’s petals are visible.

Similarly, glue the medium sized flower patterns one by one on the top of the large ones.

Now glue the 2 small sized flower patterns (these are actually the centre of the flower); similarly, slightly rotate the second piece on the first piece to make sure that the tips of the first flower’s petals are visible.

And finally, glue the rolled flower on the centre and allow the glue to dry. Attach the leaves at the bottom side of the flower, but make sure that the leaves are visible from the top end and from the sides of the flowers.

I love this time of year when the sunflowers all looking glorious in the garden and standing proud.  So why not take inspiration from them to make some beautiful paper sunflowers.  They look fabulous on cards or if you take a straw on the back you can have a bunch of sunflowers for a vase or give as a gift. 

I totally adore the texture you get with these beautiful Sunflowers and they are perfect for brightening up the end of the summer.
