This is a 4" pink rose created from the "The Giant Flowers" cart.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • pink cardstock (for petals)
  • green cardstock (for stem)
  • glue (your choice)
  • ink for petal edges

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I followed the directions in the "Giant Flowers" User Manual. (However I cut the pieces out at 4" instead of the recommended size. I was making this rose for the first time, and wanted to be able to handle the pieces as I attempted). After cutting the petals and stem out, I lightly 'inked' the outer edges of the petals by rubbing the sides along the ink pad, until desired color was achieved. After the ink dried, I then glued all the petals into the starting shape (Per instructions in manual), and once dried,I "shaped the petals using a pencil to help curve the petals as desired. I then assembled the rose. I found it easier to go ahead and glue the petals into the starting position from the beginning than to do it as I went step by step. I have since gone back and re-inked the torn edges of the petal making it even more realistic. I, however,do not have a photo)
Once it is assembled, sit back and admire your work. I know I sure did! Enjoy.
