Sweet Sunflower Snack

As part of my Curbside Catalog Pick-up Event for the new 2020 Annual Catalog going live on June 3rd, I made this sweet treat for my customers. I experimented with different looks for the sunflower - plain cardstock, gold foil, and stamped cardstock. The Sunrich Honey Roasted Sunflower Seeds can be purchased through Amazon.

Here's a few tips to share on how I made the treat toppers:

1. Cut Bumblebee cardstock for sunflower base and Early Espresso cardstock die overlay at 3-1/2" square.

2. Cut Cinnamon Cider cardstock at 2" x 4-1/4" long for front banner. Punch banner bottom with Triple Banner Punch first. Then emboss with Tasteful Textile embossing folder on Big Shot.

3. Cut Bumblebee cardstock at 2-1/2" wide by 4-1/4" long for back banner. Adhere Cinnamon Cider top edge of embossed banner about 1/4" higher than the Bumblebee banner to leave room for fuzzy cutting the matching banner end at the bottom of the Bumblebee tag.

4. If you have one of the extra sticky lint rollers, they work great to pick up/stick the inner pieces from the sunflower die to. You can even poke out the little center dots of the sunflower with the Take Your Pick tool along the edge of the lint roller. Be careful not to let the die cut cardstock stick to the roller if you can help it. (I wasted a few die cuts learning how to hold it just above the tape.) Clean up is easy with this tool.

5.  Assembly is only one staple. Lay the banners on top of the sunflower seeds pack matching the top edge of the Cinnamon Cider banner with the top of the seed pack, lay the finished sunflower with leaves glue dotted to the back of the flower. Staple thru middle of the sunflower center catching all layers. Hide the staple with one dimensional on the extra Cinnamon Cider flower center you have die cut. People can enjoy the seed pack and still have the sunflower tag topper left intact.
