Cricut flowers hints.....

Hi ..I am back...had a lovely relaxing time with my parents on the edge of lovely ( now full of water again..Lake Boga)

I have had so many comments regarding the flowers I made for the bird cage, I wanted to pass on how simple these are and also how easy to make different versions from exactly the same cut.

Here is a close up of an example....
These are identical cuts I just played with them in a different way.

The flower on the left - I pinched each petal in half and made a defined crease on each of three varying sizes, inked them and then glued them together.
The flower on the right I inked and then rolled each petal fairly firmly before gluing together.

To finish them I put a dew drop in the centre and scattered dimensional magic here and there followed by a light sprinkle of  stampin up dazzling diamonds.

I cut a full page on the cricut in assorted sizes of several shades. Its a great way to use spare paper and older paper.

Here are a couple more shots......enjoy and please email me if any assistance required....I love to share and help others

These flowers are just lovely! It's difficult to tell how big they are but they remind me of some I have that are around 6 inches wide that are hung on the wall. It's a fun fad here in the U.S. These would be so lovely if used in that manner!
