I made this Bouquet for my mom for Mother's Day. The flowers are made from Giant Flowers and Flower Shoppe and the carnation is just tissue paper.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Card stock
  • paper
  • 16 and 22 gauge wire
  • floral tape
  • tissue paper
  • hot glue
  • ink for edges

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Giant Flowers-The Poppy flowers was cut at just over 3" and I ran the petals through a crimper and inked the edges. I put the petals together secured them with hot glue. I then turned the flower upside down and put a 16 gauge wire in the center and lots of hot glue. I also cut leaves out from the same cartridge and folded them in half and put through the crimper. I added a little hot glue to center of the leaves and added 22 gauge green wire and folded the leaf just to cover the wire. I wrapped the wire with the leaf, to the wire I attached to the flower, and then wrapped it all in floral tape.
You can see it all in this video.
Flower Shoppe - Daisy-I started by rolling and gluing the center to a 16 gauge wire I was using as the stem. I rolled the yellow center on wire. I then put the daisy together by gluing one petal under the one next to it to give it a 3d affect and not be flat. I then glued the petals to the center, ok, this sounds much harder than it actually was. Watch the video, it is easy. The hardest part was covering the wire with floral tape, but it is worth it.

Carnation is not a die cut, I just used tissue paper and some scalloped punches. You can watch the video. See more on my blog post. http://melodylanedesigns.blogspot.com/2013/05/tissue-paper-carnations.html
