Cricut Friday: Spring Paper Flower Wreath

 

 

Colorful and very spring!

Colorful and very spring!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am little obsessed with these paper flowers.  I created this wreath for my front porch and you need the following tools and supplies to create it:

  • Cricut machine
  • Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
  • Cuttlebug machine
  • Cuttlebug embossing folders
  • cardstock and patterned paper
  • adhesive
  • hot glue gun
  • circle punches
  • 12″ wire wreath form

Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 3″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 2.5″.  For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at 1″ and 1.25″ with circle punches.  For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 2.5″.  For Flower 3, punch a circle at 1.25″.  For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 2.5″.  For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 3″ and punch a circle at 1.25″.  Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.

This project is a fun way to create something seasonal and doesn’t use too much in the way of supplies.  All of the flower centers were created from paper scraps and you need one 12×12 sheet of patterned paper for each flower.  That’s it.  If you are looking for a fun project to give as a gift that doesn’t cost a lot of money, then you might want to try it.  You will most probably get hooked like I did.  Enjoy!

Isn't it lovely!

  1. So fun! I might need to try this. Actually, I was at a graduation the other day and remembered that a friend once made a paper flower lei. I really want to try that too.
