  • Cardstock – my favorite go-to brand is Recollections. Make sure it is 65 lbs cardstock weight

  1. Select your templates
  2. Decide on the size of your flower. Remember to always set your base to be at least 2 to 3 inches larger than your largest petal. If your large petal is 5 inches in height, set your base to 8 inches
  3. Plan to have at least 3 layers for your flower. For a fuller look, add two more layers. Reduce the size of each petal by 1 to 1.25 inches
  4. Set up a project in Design Space. Not sure how to organize your petals? This detailed tutorial will walk you through the steps
  5. Use your Cricut machine to cut out your templates. Remember to use 12×24 mats to cut more petals at once
  6. Style each petal by curling the sides, and/or creating a slit in the middle to give your petal more depth. This playlist has several tutorials on how to style different templates
  7. Glue your petals to your base. Start with the largest size petal and work your way to the smallest
  8. Create fringe center or you can use small 3D flower link
  9. You are all done!
