Making Sunburst Cards
I have been working on organizing my Craft Room and Found so many Paper Scraps laying around. I put them in a box and nearly threw them away. I have been seeing all these fabulous cards out there Called "Sunburst" cards and thought it would be a great way to use up all those papers.
They are a fast ( if you have all you paper cut up) and Fun way to make a variety of cards.
We will be making PostCard ones today with 4-H kids... That way they can glue the scrap pieces onto a postcard without having to have had to precut a bunch of card stock.
To start cut up all your paper scraps into 1 1/2 inch x 4 inch pieces:
To make these cards:
Base of Card: 5 inch Card Base- Kraft card stock cut into 5" x 10" and Folded
Scallop Die cut Circle , Trim, flowers, and pearls: Could use any embellishment
4 patterned paper rectangle cut into 1 1/2" x 4"
Cut each rectangle in half to make 8 triangles
1 scrap piece of card stock cut to 3 1/2" x 5"
Mark the Center Point on the Cardstock and Glue 8 triangles lined up against each other starting at the Center point
I use a glue stick and paste the entire Card stock rectangle.
Now the Fun Part: Trim all pieced of paper that hang over the Card stock rectangle.
That it now you can create your Card by Adhering it to the 5inch Card Base and Embellish as you wish.
1 Scrap piece of card stock cut to 2 3/4" x 5"
IF using this size of base: use 18 rectangles
Follow directions as for Card 1
For a little Texture- I ran a few of the Sunburst pieces in an embossing folder through my sizzix die cut machine.
