I used the cricut to cut these flowers from acid free paper. I think they turned out nicely and will use them on my Word Books. Here are the steps to create these flowers yourself. It is quick, easy, and less expensive than purchasing the floral packages. And a great way to use up scraps!!
Step 1: Choose any floral image from a cricut cartridge
Step 2: Cut 2-3" flowers, 2-2" flowers, and 2-1" flowers
Step 3: Attach with a brad or other finding, starting with the smallest flower first. Rotate the petals on each layer.
Step 4: Spray flowers with water.
Step 5: Starting with the center flowers, scrunch towards the center. Repeate with each layer.
Step 6: Unfold the flowers
Step 7: Spray with a glitter spray to variety.
Step 8: Let dry
Step 9: Apply to your creations
**To create more depth, ink the edges of the petals before assembling.
