Sunflower/Sunburst Mirror Made With Cardstock

220K Views
I’ve wanted a sunflower/sunburst mirror for a while. I found a couple that I liked at the store, however, I wasn’t a fan of the price. After some research, I knew the best material for this project was heavyweight cardstock. I was going to use a circular mirror but I decided I needed something on top to decorate, then, Eureka! I will use a wood embroidery hoop and clothespins. They are easy to find and really affordable. I drew the pattern and guide to make the placement of each petal easy-peasy and you can download them form my blog avantimorocha.com using your social media to unlock the file or buy it in my Etsy shop.
