Sunflowers are very popular and I have fallen in love with all the sunflower crafts.
There are so many sunflower clipart and cut files available to make beautiful sunflower craft projects so I made a list to help you get started.

Sunflowers are such stunning flowers. From the tiny ones to the giant ones, the single stemmed ones to the big bunches. Their colors are so beautiful. They come in all shades of yellow, orange, red, even purple or blue.
I was putting an email together for my font newsletter subscribers of my Free, Cheap, and Got to have ‘em font and design resource email.
I was going to include a couple of sunflower SVG and clipart files for them because they are so popular but I realized there are so many amazing files out there! Way more than I should add to an email, so I decided to create a post with some of my favorites and even make a sunflower craft for myself.

She includes patterns for the flowers in the book, as PDF, and as SVG to use with the rotary cutting tool in your Silhouette or Cricut.

Make a Sunflower Layered Paper Art Decoration with Video
I haven’t crafted in a few weeks and I have been wanting to try these layered paper cut files so I grabbed this one from Creative Fabrica.
I made a video to show the steps to cut and assemble the sunflower. This was my first time creating layered paper art. It was pretty easy especially using my Silhouette Cameo to cut the layers of card stock.
Here are the steps to make a layered sunflower:
- Purchase, download and extract the file.
- Open the file in Silhouette Studio, resize if desired and duplicate one set of layers for each finished project you would like to cut. (Keep an original to help layer the project after it is cut).
- Separate the layers of the cut file (ungroup and drag them apart).
- Choose the colors of card stock you would like to use.
- Place the first color of card stock you will cut on your mat.
- Place the design layer on the screen where your card stock is on your mat.
- Go to your send screen and select the correct cut settings for the material you are cutting (use my printable Perfect Silhouette Cut Settings form to record your perfect cut settings).
- Double check your blade is loaded properly (and set if using a ratchet blade).
- Send to cut.
- Cut out all the pieces in the file.
- Remove any cut out pieces from the layer if needed using tweezers.
- Using the original design, layer the cardstock in order to do a test fit.
- Apply glue, use a tape runner or double sided tape, or for depth, use double sided adhesive foam dots to the back of the second to bottom layer.
- Place the layer with the adhesive on top of the bottom layer.
- Put adhesive on the next layer and place it. Repeat until you have all layers stacked up.
- Hang on your wall, add to a scrapbook, or put in frame and enjoy your sunflower!
