Flowers

Hi all,
I'm debuting on www.tuesdaytreats.com. It's my first time as a designer on there. The blog was started up on the Cricut Members Board for Gypsy users to gain inspiration and to try to learn how to use her. Today I decided to make flowers. The file is pretty simple. It was one of the first ones I made on my Gypsy. I saw lots of flowers being made on Utube using punches. That seemed a lot of time wasted punching out. I made this file with 8 different size flowers.

Here is my Gypsy screen. You can change the flowers, which I'm going to do now I have even more carts. The flowers are just over 1.5 inches.


Here are the floers all cut out on my mat. I used K&Co card. I find light weight card works better as it holds the shape and doesn't tear.


I then used the end of a paint brush to curl the petals. I also squeezed some with my fingers.



You can make lots of different flowers depending on how many layers you use. The purple one in the picture was my very first attempt. It's the last one of the batch I made, so I keep it as a record. You can see by the pink ones, depending on what ones you use you can get different results.
I hope you all enjoyed my project. I will add the file at a later date to my Gypsy File section.
Thanks for looking
Kelly :)

Your flowers are beautiful! Thank you for sharing a way to spend less :-) I have looked at those punches and wanted them but not realize I have what I need.
