Making Paper Craft Sunflower Seeds
Step 1: Cut 5 pieces of black construction paper. Measure 5x30cm each strip. This will serve as our base for the sunflower.
Step 2: Fold each strip in to half. Fold it again twice. Do these with the remaining 4 strips.
Step 3: Look for the folded part underneath the open edges. Cut them into small strips but make sure do not to cut the bottom edge.
Step 4: When you open it, it should look like below. Then, add a minimal amount of glue at the bottom of the edge.
Repeat the same process for the last 4 strips.
Rolling Out Sunflower Seeds
Step 5: Start rolling out the strips. Continue rolling out the rest of strips.
After you’ve rolled every strip together, it should look like this.
Step 6: Cut 3 pieces of 5x30cm mustard yellow strips. Repeat the same process just as we did on those black strips.
Step 7: Then wraps these yellow strips to the seeds that we did a while ago.
Now for the Petals
Step 8: For our petals, we need 5 pieces of of bright yellow strips measuring 5x20cm each.
Step 9: Fold it in half, and then fold it again. It should look like this.
Step 10: Next we’ll need to draw like a candle-like flame into the paper. Do it like this.
Make sure to add enough space at the bottom as this will be pasted to the base seeds we did early on.
Step 11: Cut the pattern, and make sure to cut a little bit at the bottom side of the petal. Do it like this.
Step 12: Now we need to add glue at the bottom center of the petals.
Step 13: Now for the last part, wrap the petals that we’ve made to base seeds. Once done, your sunflower paper craft is now ready to display!
