Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions and the answers!
What Paper Should I Use for Printing?
You can use any kind of paper you like for printing, but some types of paper may be better for your project than others.
If you are planning on tracing the image onto fabric or patterned paper, then standard copy paper will work just fine!
If you want to make a sturdier sunflower, such as a sunflower puppet, cardstock will be a better choice.
Can I Use These Sunflower templates Commercially?
Yes, you can! We do have a few restrictions (such as not selling or redistributing or templates directly) – but you can use these sunflower templates freely for physical handmade products you sell with no issue. Please see our license agreement for full details on using our resources for commercial use.
What Kind of Glue Should I Use for the Layered Flowers?
Standard Elmer’s Glue would work just fine – you could also use a glue stick, but glue sticks don’t last for very long.
If you are gluing fabric, it is usually best to use a fabric glue such as Aleene’s fabric glue or Gorilla Glue fabric glue.
