If you've come from visiting the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog then you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start here.
For our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, each Design Team member will be featuring a specific element related to using your Cricut. There will be a wide variety of techniques and elements that will be featured so make sure to check out each DT member's blog! There will be prizes along the way AND there will be a grand prize for the participant that incorporates the most featured elements on ONE project!!! How fun is that?
I'm also giving away a prize on my blog in conjunction with the blog hop. I'm giving away the Cricut Robotz Cartridge. There are so many cute images on this one. Keep reading for details on how to win.
The element I've chose to feature for the crawl is..."Die-Cut Flower Power". You can use any Cricut cartridge with flowers and circles to decorate your flowers. Here is a bundle of flowers that I cut using various patterned paper.
Don't just use plain flower die-cuts on a project. Here are pictures of how I spruce them up a bit by using Stickles, glitter, fabric buttons, bling jewels, or pearls.
I also like to make accordion flowers. Here's how I make mine...First, cut a piece of patterned paper on your Cricut or paper trimmer. It needs to be 12" long and about 1 to 1-1/2" wide. Then fold the paper accordion style like you see here. I used 2 sided paper. I couldn't decide if I wanted the polka dots or the pretty green on the other side. Keep reading to see which side of the paper I chose.
