I don’t know about you, but when I think of spring, flowers come to mind. So, why not celebrate the spring season with a vibrant bloom that we are all familiar with? That’s right, today I am sharing some lovely die cut dandelions!
I know, I know, dandelions are a nuisance. But come one, who didn’t love picking dandelions as a kid? I remember rubbing the yellow flowers onto large rocks with my cousins and making our own pictograms, tying the stems together to make flower crowns, and, of course, blowing the white seeds and making wishes.
Here are some fun facts about dandelions that you didn’t ask for, but I’m going to give you anyway:
- Every part of the dandelion plant is useful (the flower, leaves, and root). It can be used in medicine, food, and as a dye.
- The dandelion plant is representative of the three predominant celestial bodies: the sun (the yellow flower), the moon (the white puff ball), and the stars (the dispersed seeds).
- Dandelion seeds can travel up to five miles from their original plant.
- Dandelions can grow to be 17 inches tall (I think I’ve seen a few of those ones along my fence line).
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other spring freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting these die cut dandelions to good use! Be sure to share your fun, spring projects with me on Instagram!
