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!

Your dandelions are delightful! My yard is full of them and I don’t try to kill them. They are one of the first flowers out and when I walk across the yard I see so many happy bees working on the flowers. The dandelions do get their little heads chopped off when we mow the grass but that doesn’t deter them from proliferating in my yard. My aunt would harvest the young leaves and cook them for breakfast. I haven’t quite gotten the hang of that. Well, before I write you a book, I just want to say thank you for your delightful design and have a wonderful day!

I was reading about dandelions, and they actually are grown as crops in some places!! And you are right—they definitely make the bees happy (which we really need).
I have never heard of anyone cooking the leaves before—how cool!!

je ne connaissais pas “l’histoire” des pissenlits. J’ai prévu cette semaine de faire de la gelée de fleurs, c’est délicieux.
Je vais faire une carte pour mon PL avec ton fichier.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this file. Not sure what or when I will use it with, but I do believe it will at least end up in my art journal and maybe even in my planner. Hope it cuts well on my Cameo. Thank you so much for sharing. :))

Thanks so much Sharon! I’m sure they will look awesome no matter where you end up using them. 😀
