I have a really quick and easy tutorial for you today using a couple of dies from My Creative Time. I love these sunburst cards using scrap paper but I hate measuring out the pieces, plus I like the stitching all around each piece.
I used two sets to create this sunburst backgrount, the More Stitched Rectangular Dies and the More Stitched Edges, both of these sets are a must have!
I started by cutting out 6 pieces using the third largest die in the Rectangular set. These are all scraps I had from the same paper pad, bought from Michaels a long time ago.
I took the straight stitched edge die and cut each rectangular piece diagonally. I wasn't precise at all with my cutting, just eyeballed it. Using this die gave me stitching on both sides of the cut!
I cut the largest rectangular die out of white cardstock and used my tape gun to put strips of tape down vertically and horizontally. Start adding the pieces, you'll need 11 of them.
You can see that the center isn't perfect and it doesn't have to be it will be covered, just make sure your pieces touch each other. I didn't press down so I could move some of my pieces until they lined up nicely.
I ran the piece through my die cut machine with the largest rectangular die. You don't have to line it up with the bottom piece, that's just for the pattern pieces to be glued to.
