Here it is, the start of another week! But it isn't just any old Monday! Oh No!!! It's time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. Our theme this time is 'April Showers Bring Us Flowers'. Make sure your project includes a cricut cut and flowers. This is the gift I gave my Secret Sister at Church for Easter. It goes with the Spring gift I gave her. It was the most adorable pot shaped like rainboots with frog faces on them!! I got it at Hobby Lobby. I bought a plant at Lowes and put it in the pot. I also gave her the card I made for the last challenge. If you didn't see the Easter card I posted yesterday, scroll down. It is the one I gave her with her gift. I used the Flower Shoppe cartridge to cut all of the flowers. I used the one on page 16. I didn't use all of the cuts from this page though. I used my Gypsy Girl and welded together fun 3 so it would cut as one piece. I made 3 different sizes. Each petal is 2.72 height, 2.01 height and 1.48 height. then I cut fun 2 at 3.25 height and 2.54 height. Two different sizes for that one. I used the leaf called heart 5 and cut them at 2.25 height. It can be found at #43 on the overlay. I used the hide contour and hid the holes from the middle. All of the papers I used for the cuts are from my scrapbin. I misted each flower piece and the leaves with water and crumpled them up and then flattened them out. When they dried, I misted them with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I curled up the ends of the petals, and then punched a hole in the center and attached them together with pearl brads that came from Hobby Lobby. I cut down some wooden skewers and painted them with light green acrylic paint. I used glue dots to attach the flowers to the skewers. I made 6 flowers. The watering can came from Hobby Lobby. Now if I were really crafty, I would have painted a beautiful picture on the side, but I can't draw or paint pictures worth a flip!! And I couldn't find a painted can anywhere! I crumbled up some tissue paper and put inside the can and stuck the flowers in. I had picked up some Easter chocolates just for this gift. I love the ones shaped like carrots!!
It is now your turn to create a project using your cricut and flowers. I'm so looking forward to visiting you and seeing what you made. You have until 9pm EST, Saturday, April 14th to link up your project. Check out what my DT Sisters created for some inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!
We would love for you to come back each day and see our daily projects, too.
Hope ya'll like my project!!!! :)
