Good morning, and welcome to another printable craft post here on LearnCreateLove! Today I’m posting another sun-catcher craft. You might have seen our latest — an adorable Butterfly Sun-Catcher that I posted a couple weeks ago.
I have to be honest about this flower sun-catcher… it’s a total pain in the butt to make! There is just so much cutting and having to deal with the multiple scraps of contact paper is just a pain. But, I took the time to design it and Lorelai took the time to make the craft, so I might as well share it just in case anyone wants to do it.
We made another flower sun-catcher a while back that was a lot more simple and stress-free. =) If you don’t want to turn this into a sun-catcher, using it as a basic flower template would also work. Print below and enjoy!
1. Have your child color the flower. They do not need to color the center parts that will be cut out.
2. Cut out the flower (outside line).
3. Cut out the center of the petals. (Poke a hole in the center with your scissors, carefully cut along dotted line.)
4. Tape down a piece of contact paper to the back of one petal. The non-sticky side should show through the flower when you look at it from the front.
5. Add tissue paper.
6. Press down second piece of contact paper over the tissue paper to seal it together, creating a complete window. (So – contact paper, tissue paper, contact paper – with no sticky sides visible.)
7. Trim any contact paper that sticks out from around the flower petal.
8. Repeat on each petal.
9. Tape to your window!
Note: Wax paper can definitely be used in place of contact paper. You will just have to add glue to make it sticky. Same process otherwise!
