Exploring Cricut and More Thursday Project

Hello! I am sharing today at Exploring Cricut and More. In keeping with the challenge I created a project for Mother's Day including a ribbon in my floral arrangement.

I created 7 flowers with the Flower Shoppe cartridge.There are quite a few videos on showing various methods of making paper flowers. I really like this one and used it as my inspiration. She has other videos on different flowers as well that are awesome! I chose to not have them so tightly cupped for a different look.

The wire was hot glued between the folds of the layers and then the button was hot glued to the center. 

The butterfly has a vellum overlay that is hot glued in the center. It also has a wire attached with hot glue to the back.

I inked the flowers prior to using the stylus, as shown in the video, to cup the flowers. I stickled the edges of most of the petals once the flower was put together.
