sunflower state of mind

Since I dedicated two April posts to Texas Bluebonnets, I decided to go back to my roots this month and feature the state flower of Kansas.

This sunflower craft is very simple and only requires a circle punch (I used a 1 in. punch), paper and glue. To create each sunflower, I punched out one brown circle and six yellow circles. Then, I cut the yellow circles in half and glued them to the brown circle in a spiral pattern overlapping each semi-circle until I completed the circle. To finish off the sunflower, I attached a green strip of paper for the stem and added circle halves for the leaves.

Because Mother’s Day is this week, I glued the completed sunflowers onto a gift bag and added stickers to the sunflower centers to spell out mom. This craft would also work well for a greeting card or place cards.
