I made these paper flowers with my new Cricut and the Giant Flower art cartridge!
I cut most of the flowers at 3.5 inches, which won’t mean to much to you non-cricutters. But basically it means that the main component would be cut at 3.5 inches tall and everything in proportion to that. The directions for each flower stated they would be best cut at around 10-12 inches. That would have meant my pansy would be close to 2 feet across!! As it is this guy is close to 6 inches across. Plenty big enough.
The daisy got turned into a black-eyed susan, and I left off the ridgey thing that was supposed to be around the black part. It wouldn’t go into the slots, glue properly, and pretty much flung itself onto the floor – never to be seen again. Seriously. I don’t know where it went. Maybe a dog ate it? New cat toy? ah well. Still looks good!
I want to make the rose and the lotus as well sometime. I’m thinking summer garland? Maybe some BBQ decorations? We’ll have to see!
