August – the last month of Summer and time for the lovely Sunflowers to follow the sun all day. Such an amazing flower a Sunflower is. Not only is it beyond beautiful but it also provides us with food. Mmmmm Sunflower seeds.
August equals Sunflowers to me and that’s why I chose to make two small Sunflower projects to show you today.
The first is the Sunflower Hidden Giftcard card from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit:
…. because you can pull out the hidden tray for the gift card.
I also made the Sunflower card into a Shaker card by making some rings and gluing them under the top flower along with a piece of acetate. The shaker glitter is among other from Nuvo and Finnabair.
To go with this cute card, I made a small gift box – the Sunflower 3D Hex Box with Bee
This darling little starshaped box, is made from AC Cardstock in Cranberry, Mustard, Chestnut and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper also from the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.
Instead of making the original flower center, I chose to make a chunky glitter center by gluing all kinds of glitter and tiny glass pearls onto a thick coat of glue. Sorry the picture doesn’t do it enough justice because it’s really beautiful.
Here are the two projects together:
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you like my two Sunflower projects – please let me know in a comment below.
