The Shabby Tea Room
I love the atmosphere there
Fantabulous Cricut is full of that daily dose of cricut inspiration.
They’re a new blog site that is defiantly a must see for anyone with a Cricut.
They have tips, tutorials, and of cause a weekly challenge.
This week’s challenge is
The flower on my card is made from the Pagoda cartridge.
Thought about using my Prima flowers but then saw the Fantabulous Cricut challenge and said: “Why not make my own paper flower?”
So I did and I love the way it turned out.
Put together a little tutorial below. Enjoy :)
Using the “Pagoda” cartridge:
Shift Lock on
Cut 2 times at 2”
Cut 2 times at 1½”
Choose the front of your flower. It doesn’t matter which just, choose the side you like best :)
Ink all sides of the petals on the front.
Then ink the whole back of the petals.
When you’re inking it also helps to shape the flower.
Below I showed the front (on the left) & the back (right).
Next shape the flowers a little more with the ends of the petals pointed downwards, and the inside of petals shaped up.
Last thing is to glue the petals together.
Just add a small amount of glue around the circle in the middle.
Then position the flowers overlapping each other.
Add a center (I used a button) and that’s it.
A great paper flower you made yourself.
