Paper Posies

I have been in a paper playground making large scale projects these last few weeks, I thought I would give you a peek at one of the display items for the upcoming Cricut Circle crop being held In Orlando Florida on April 8th. Our theme is April showers bring May flowers, and flowers seem to be stacking up all over my home!

Big bright blooms and several other pretty papery items are being made every day, but you will have to stop by often to see a few more glimpses into the decor for the crop. I cut these flowers with the Walk in my garden Cricut Cartridge and they were cut at 6" if memory serves me....... {but it usually doesn't} LOL

I used skinny dowels and hot glued them to the back to make sure they stay put! The buttons were hot glue additions as well, but I did use a large brad to secure all the flower layers.No petals will be falling off of these paper posies! If you want detailed instructions on making these distressed flowers, I have a video tutorial here.

OK its back to work for this girl, time is running short!!!  Whatever you are doing today, make it happy!
