365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#79 Paper Flower Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone! If you are a friend on Facebook then you've probably seen this flowers that I made today. Here is my deatailed tutorial for them enjoy!
Step 1,2- Cut 8 Scallop circle shapes for each color at 2.53 in. with Gypsy. The flower is on the top left part of your Gypsy keypad Shift/Shadow key functions. I got 12 flowers total on one 8.5x11 inch white cardstock. To make all 6 flowers I needed 3 total sheets of white cardstock. Ink around the edges.

Step 3- Spray all flowers with water and rub the water all over the flower, you want it to be very damp.

Step 4- Crumble like trash!

Step 5- Uncrumble and lay flat.

Step 6- Stack all 8 flowers on top of eachother.

Step 7- Punch a hole with Crop A Dile, I punched all 8 at the same time

Step 8- Place any color brad in center, you won't actually see the brad in the end.

Step 9-Crumble each flower layer upwards around the brad.

Step 10- After crumbling all layers upwards around brad it should look like this, then "Smoosh" it all together in your hands to look like this.

Step 11- Spray with Glimmer Mist, Let dry for 5 Minutes!!

Step 12-  Time for the flower to Bloom! Uncrumble as many layers as you want slowly.The Glimmer mist should be dry but the flower will still be damp from the water.

Here's a side view of the the flower.

The flower is over an inch in height

Products I used Crop A Dile, Accent Essentials, spray bottle of water

Glimmer Mist and Dew Drop inks. For the black & blue flowers I used Irredecient Gold, Pink flower Vanilla Breeze, purple flower Pearl, brown flower coffee shop, yellow flower Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist.

I have been having so much fun making flowers and I promise to post more flower tutorials for you!

Be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow morning for the Cricut Imagine Blog Hop I am hosting called "Imagine That blog Hop"
