-These sweet flowers were made using my Cricut cartridge George & Basic Shapes. Use the 5 petal flower on Shadow Blackout (flower2). Cut at 2.5" (you can get 12 flowers on a 12x12 page).
-You will need to cut out 2 flowers for each sucker.
-The bottom part of the flower you will cut an 'X' by floding it lightly in the center and cutting a small slit and fold in half the other way anc cutting a small slit.
-Then take a dowel rod or chop stick or something small and round and curl the top edge of the flowers over 9be careful...it is paper and can rip.
-The center part of the paper floewr you will cut off 1 petal and fold them into each other to make a cone shape. i hot glue my petals together. (be careful if you do this...it's HOT glue). I then snip a small hole in the bottom of the cone and insert my sucker.
-I put a small amount of hot glue in the bottom of the come shape area and insert it into the center of the 'X' that you cut earlier, and press them together (again be careful...it's hot).
-For the "leaf" tie a gree ribbon in a double knot around the "stem" sucker.
Happy Crafting! And please let me know if you have any questions.
