Flower Tutorial Using Cricut and Metal Dies

Hi friends!
It comes as no surprise that we love to add flowers to our projects. Whether it be card-making, book-making, or altering items for home decor. This is all wonderful, but what happens when the store doesn't have the perfect color bloom you're looking for?
In my case, I like to put the tools in my crafty stash to work, and come up with my own!

Here is a bunch of little flowers, all easily made with my Cricut, and with several dies from my stash. I used Ranger Oxide inks in Abandoned Coral, and Spun sugar. You can use these individually, or combine them for gorgeous color combinations!

Also pictured above is Liquitex Gel medium, mod podge, and Nuvo drops. These are optional, but I like to add them to my papers to give my flowers great texture and different centers!
To shape my flowers I use McGill tools that allow me to manipulate the paper and add tons of dimension also!
Making these is time-consuming, but the end result is well worth it, as I then get to incorporate them to any project I like, or add them in happy mail for friends to use also!
Here is a video if you like more detail, and a peek into how I make these!
Enjoy, and Be inspired, Be blessed!~Raquel
