How to Make Paper Sunflowers | Paper Flower Tutorials


It's been a while! Several months (yes MONTHS!) ago, I started working on a paper sunflower tutorial for you, and turns out that trying to work whilst also looking after a baby full time isn't that easy - who knew?! Anyway, I have FINALLY finished the tutorial and it's ready and waiting for you right now!

I know most of us are starting to think about Christmas now rather than seasonal flowers like the sunflower, but thats the beauty of paper flowers - you can have any flower you like, year round! Sunflowers work great in winter displays too, just pair them with some cooler toned flowers, such as anemones and winter foliage. Or even switch the yellow crepe for some white to create some icy white blooms ready for winter.

With this tutorial I'm teaching you step by step how to make not one but 2 sunflowers from crepe paper. Using my sunflower template you'll be able to make both a standard size sunflower, and an extra large sunflower too.

We'll cover the flower itself, the leaves and the calyx, and also how to colour your petals using pan pastels.
