Scrapbook Design Idea: Easy Sunburst

I will always, ALWAYS love the look of sunburst designs. They are so eye-catching! The downfall is that sunburst designs are not always easy to make. They can be a little easier is you have a die cutting machine, but I've got a way that's even easier than that!

The layout below is an example of an easy sunburst design.

Supplies used - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper, die cuts, and stickers: Simple Stories; Computer font: Century Gothic; Embroidery floss: DMC

Here's how you make this easy sunburst:

1. First, figure out the size of the square you want your sunburst design to be. Let's use 8 x 8" as an example.

2. Now divide that square size into four square sections. For an 8 x 8" square sunburst that would be four 4 x 4" squares.

3. Cut several 4 x 4" squares in the patterned papers that you want to use. You can use a different pattern for each sunburst piece or you can use just a few.

4. Cut those 4 x 4" squares in half diagonally.

5. Arrange the triangle/sunburst pieces together to create your square.

There are also several ways you can dress up the sunburst design. I added stitched lines to mine. You could also add in some smaller strips, sequins, shapes, etc.

It's so easy!!
