Quick and Easy Sunburst

Charity Here!
I'm challenging paper crafters to add a sunburst to layouts or cards. If you are a little rusty on sunburst mechanics I've got a quick tutorial that will help out.
Step 1:
Fold a 6x6 sheet of paper in half diagonally
Step 2:
Fold it in half again
Step 3:
Unfold the paper so the four triangles are visible.
Draw arrows pointing to the right side of the triangles.
Step 4:
Cut out the triangles on the fold lines.
Trace them onto scrap pieces of patterned paper.
You will need two of each triangle to make a half page sunburst.
Step 5:
When cutting out the right side of each of the triangles leave an extra 1/4 inch of paper. This flap will go under the piece next to it when you adhere them to your background.
Tip #1
A bit of trim or stitching will cover any awkward adges left by imperfect cutting.
Tip #2
It is VERY difficult to get the points to match. Placing a die-cut, journaling card, or photo over the center of the sunburst takes care of this potential problem.
Check my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.
Scrap On!
