Sunflora Papercraft by Skele-kitty Sunflora Papercraft by Skele-kitty
I :heart: sunflowers so much, as you can see!

These are Brandon's Sunflora, keep an eye out for them on your blog [link] around May.

Together they have a grand total of 30 cents (in 5¢ pieces) inserted into them for stability.

The reason why there are so many of them is because of this:

The one on the right was the prototype, and had major falling backwards issues. The only way to make it stand independently was to glue a penny into the end of each arm and glue one on the inside of it's bottom - 15¢.

The second one on the left was the final version, but I accidentally glued the two bottom sections of it's neck on back to front, which gives it a sky-gazer posture. This one also has a penny glued to the inside of it's groin, just in case - 5¢.

Then the second one on the right has an alternate face texture. It's pose is finally correct, but I chose to glue the arms on upside down at the last minute. I accidentally glued a penny in the wrong spot (it's bottom) and had to use a counter balance penny on it's tummy, which you can just see the imprint of ... darn - 10¢.

And the one on the left is the final edit, finally built correctly!

I think that they look like they are having a wonderful conversation, don't you? Something like:
"No seriously - it was THIS big!" *group laughter*

Thank you :)
I kind of got a little carried away when I test built this model, as you can see. But don't they just look like they are having the best fun?

Er ... thank you?!

You really shouldn't put pastries in your stationary - it's not good for them and then there is the mould and grossness after.

It always ends in tears.

Oh by the way... This is quite random, but the Charmander I made, I used it to hold M&Ms. I left the mouth open and stuck M&Ms in there... It held the whole bag. I was eating them during a test XD Just pop it out his mouth... and he's in perfect shape! Guess it's the glue you use....
