How To Make A Paper Sunflower

  • Print and cut out the patterns from the sunflower template. Trace the patterns on your selected colored craft paper and cut them out

 

  • The sunflower 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.

 

  • Cut out the spiral pattern from the brown craft paper and the leaf patterns from green craft paper.

  • Take a flower pattern and create creases on them.

 

  • First, create crease from the center towards the tip of each petal. Next, create a crease in between each sunflower petal and towards the center.

  • Create a crease on the leaf cutouts as well.
