Craftin’ on Sunshine
Introducing the star of our Midwestern bouquet for Cricut — our jumbo crepe paper sunflower! This gorgeous paper bloom is sure to brighten all of your days. The new Cricut Maker has made it a wonderful possibility for us to finally cut crepe paper and felt on a cutting machine. We’d highly recommend this new piece of crafting technology — it will change your life. If you don’t have access to a cutting machine, don’t forget you can also cut this project by hand with a pair of scissors! Download the templates and follow our step-by-step tutorial below for crepe paper crafting made easy. Spread some sunshine and love!

- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- Following the template notes, cut one strip of black felt, two strips of yellow felt, five strips of light brown felt and eight strips of dark brown felt.
- Using the tacky glue, glue a strip of dark brown felt on both sides of the strip of black felt, placing them so 1/4” of the black felt is sticking out of the top on the long side. Repeat gluing a light brown strip of felt onto either side of both strips of yellow felt. Repeat again gluing a strip of dark brown felt onto either side of the three remaining light brown strips of felt.
- Allow the glue to dry, then fringe each strip of felt on the side with the middle color peeking out.
