Mum Flower Tutorial

November 8, 2012 in Cricut Cartridges by Cindy Herman

This flower is just one of the rolled flowers from the Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut Cartridges.  The flower used for the tutorial came from the Artiste cartridge.  The flower on the card was cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  You need to have your Liquid Glass ready when you start rolling the flower.  I used the Z1382 Tweezers to roll these flowers until I recent purchased the Z1795 Quilling Tool.  The Quilling Tool works much easier!  Another hint is to make sure your mat is sticky enough so the paper won’t release as the Cricut cuts the flower.

Ink the edges of the flower with Smokey Plum ink before rolling.  With the tweezers or quilling tool at the small end of the flower, start rolling around the tool.  I roll it tight as it will loosen when I start to glue it.  Roll all the way to the center/circle end.  This will be your base.

Once that is done, holding the flower against the circle base, loosen the tweezers/quilling tool.  Holding the flower so it won’t come unrolled too much, carefully lift the flower a little bit so you can get Liquid Glass on the base.

 

Put the flower down into the Liquid Glass.  You will need to add some to the center as well.  Hold the flower until the Liquid Glass starts to set up.

 

Once it is dry you can push the petals down to better shape your flower.  Add a sparkle in the center to make it pop!

 

 

Accordion Disk Flower Tutorial

November 8, 2012 in Cricut Cartridges by Cindy Herman

 

The two strips need to make this flower were cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  This is the scalloped edge flower of this type.  Fold each of the scalloped strips accordion where the little slits are in the paper.  They should be where the scallops start.

After both pieces are folded, attach one end to the end of the other strip.  Now attach the other two ends together making a circle.

With the straight end folded tight together, push it down to make it flat.  The scalloped end will flair out.  Put one of the circles in the middle.

 

Carefully so it won’t come undone, turn it over.  Use Z679 Liquid Glass in the center now.  Make sure it is still pushed together tight.

Now you can put the other circle in the center.  If you hold it together for a minute or two to give the Liquid Glass time to start drying, it will stay.

Use a glue dot to add the paper flower to the center of the printed side and another glue dot to add the sparkle to the center of that.  That sparkle is from the Z1741 Haunted Assortment.
