My Cricut Craft Room Design Team Theme Day: FLOWERS!

Hi everyone! Today I a sharing a project for Erica's My Cricut Craft Room, and today's theme is Flowers!

I have been making a few new projects that you will get to see soon, but I have been very busy with my ornaments.  Have you seen them yet?  Check them out here in my Etsy Shop!

I made a whole bunch of these this summer and I thought it would be fun to share something a little out of the box with you today.

I used Mother's Day Bouquet to make the fabric cuts for this, but you could use any scalloped circle cut that you have.

I didn't take pictures of the process, but it's pretty simple to do.

The first step is to prepare your fabric for cutting.  Most people suggest you do so by using Wonder-Under to stiffen up the fabric before cutting.  It also keeps the fabric in place while its being cut on your mat.  I cut four in one size (toy with the sizes that you like best but know that the largest one you make will be about the size of your overall flower), then three in a slightly smaller size.

I cut a small piect of circular felt and hot glued the pieces fown after folding each piece in half twice.  For the larger pieces you are recreating the circular shape.  Do the same with the smaller pieces, but you are doing this just to fill it in more.

Finish it in the center and voila!  In the polka dot one, I chose to make an extra 1-size smaller cut (smaller than the second layer) to make my center... didn't fold it, just kind of bunched it before hot gluing it down.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and I hopoe to see you back soon!
