Just a short post today. I'm trying my hand at the handmade flowers. I bought the art philosophy cricut cartridge (exclusive to CTMH) but before I tried those flowers I wanted to give it a go with just layering the petals you can get on a number of cartridges. I have to give credit where credit is due. While trying to figure out how I was going to do this handmade flower stuff I "googled" handmade paper flowers and came across a wonderful blog. Simply paper is ran by an amazing woman who is also very kind in sharing her "how to" tutorials. She has many tutorials showing how to make many different types of flowers.
This is my attempt at what she calls a sweet rose. It's not as good as hers but I think for a first try they turned out nice.
Here is the link for this specific rose tutorial http://simplypaperandcreativity.blogspot.com/2010/09/sweet-rose-tutorial.html but be sure to check out the rest of the things that this lady can do.
