  • Sunflower Tutorial www.onyxstamps.com Twitter: @onyxstamps by Katy Bayard What You Need Supplies Stampin’ Up! Supplies I Used q Yellow patterned paper Crushed Curry Patterns DSP q Brown patterned paper Soft Suede Patterns DSP q Green patterned paper Old Olive Patterns DSP q Adhesive Tombow Multi, Sticky Pages q Sticky Paper Sticky Pages q Light Brown Ink Creamy Caramel Classic Ink q Dark Brown Ink Chocolate Chip Classic Ink q Dark Green Ink Always Artichoke Classic Ink Tools q Paper cutter q Scissors q Sponges Note on Assembly Because of the large number of petals that are needed for this project, assembly goes faster if you make all the petals first, then adhere them to the flower base. This tutorial is set up in this way. However, adhering the petals to the base as you make them works as well. I made my first flower this way and it worked great. So just choose the method that fits your crafting style! This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
  • Sunflower Tutorial www.onyxstamps.com Twitter: @onyxstamps by Katy Bayard Prepare Petals Cut paper into strips as follows: Yellow Patterned Paper: Brown Patterned Paper Green Patterned Paper · 3” x 3/4” - 46 pieces · 2 1/2” x 1/2” - 54 pieces · 2 1/2” x 1/2” - 9 pieces · 2 1/2” x 5/8” - 46 pieces · 2” x 3/8” - 12 pieces · 1 1/2” x 1/4” - 4 pieces Note: These quantities are for a flower built on a 7” base. You may need slightly more or less depending on how closely you space the petals. Glue strips into petal shapes · Put a bit of adhesive on one end of the strip of paper. · Hold the paper so that the pattern that will be inside the petal is facing down. · Using both hands, bend the ends of the paper so that they meet with the bottom side facing up. · Press ends to secure the adhesive Applying Glue Finished Petal Prepare Flower Bases Cut flower base · Print circle template and trace onto Sticky Sheet · Cut out circle · Remove red transparent layer and place on work surface sticky side up Cut flower insert Flower base and insert · Cut out a circle about 1 1/2” in diameter. You may need to trim this down later to fit inside the flower. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
  • Sunflower Tutorial www.onyxstamps.com Twitter: @onyxstamps by Katy Bayard Step 3: Adhere Petals Place Yellow Petals · First row: Starting one of the largest yellow petals, press end onto sticky sheet so that the petal is half hanging off the sheet. Þ Repeat this around the edge of the circle so that the first row of petals is complete. · Second row: Using one of the yellow largest petals, press the end onto the sticky sheet so that Placing 1st petal 1st row completed the petal overlaps with the first row and that tip of the petal is positioned between the petals of the first row. Þ Repeat until the second row of petals is complete · Third & Fourth rows: Repeat with the 2nd largest yellow petals, until you have 2 more rows of yellow petals. Placing 2nd row Yellow petals completed Place Brown Petals · Place 3 rows of brown petals the same way you placed the yellow petals · Note: things are going to start getting tight, with it getting harder to stagger the petals pre cicely. This is no problem...just place them in a position that looks good! Placing brown row Brown petals completed Place Green Petals · Place 1 row of the largest green petals · Using the small sticky circle, place two rows of the middle sized green petals. · Place green circle inside the flower. It may help to use a pen to help push the circle in. · Place a couple of the smallest petals in the middle to fill the flower. Inserting green petals Completed Sunflower!

  • Sunflower Tutorial www.onyxstamps.com Twitter: @onyxstamps by Katy Bayard Step 4: Add More Color · At this point you can go ahead and use the flower, or you can apply some extra color to the petals to add some depth and texture. · Ink up a sponge with dark green ink. Starting in the middle, brush the sponge on the green petals to apply the ink. · Repeat on the brown petals using dark brown ink. · Repeat on the yellow petals using light brown ink. Congratulations, you're done! You can now add it to your project. In the photo on the front page, I ad- hered it to a white frame that I decorated with a Stampin' Up vinyl frame and hand cut green leaves. Yikes! I used dark brown ink on the green petals. Dark green looks much better. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
