What you'll need:
1. Prepare Sunflower
Remove flower and leaves from the stalk. Cut the stalks so it can fit in a pot.
Get a bucket, fill it with water, and add the stalks. Let it soak for 2 hours.
Find a fire pit and collect the ash from the bottom of the pit.
Remove the stalks from the water and hit them with a hammer to break it up.
Add the stalks to a pot with water and bring to a boil.
After the stalks are soft, remove from the water and let cool.
Add the stalks to a blender and blend until thin. Pour mixture into a rectangular tray (if mixture is too clumpy, blend more or add water.)
4. Make Screen
Using an old wooden frame and cut a piece of screen (like for a door). Fasten the screen to the frame.
5. Flip Goop
Using the screen, dip it flat into the tray. Carefully bring it over to a cloth surface, flip the screen over quickly, and you should see the goop holding its shape.
Wait a few days for the paper to dry. Now you can cut it, write on it, and use it to make a card for your loved ones.
