YOU WILL NEED:

Cardstock in the colours of your choice for flowers (I chose light pink, bright pink, peach and lemon)  // Teal card for foliage // Bamboo Sticks // A Cricut Explore // Craft glue //

STEP 1:

Open up the design space and find the following flower images from the image library: #M4431D , #M3CBDF & #M3D7E1

STEP 2:

Vary the sizes of how big you want these, I sized mine around 8 inches wide.

STEP 3:

Pop your card onto your mat and hit go on the Cricut, do this several times, varying the colours of your card as you go until you have 8 flowers stencils.

STEP 4:

This step is a little tricky to describe but you’ll need to roll up the flowers tightly then let them spring out and uncoil until a flower shape has formed! Glue this in place then allow to dry and repeat with your other flowers.
