Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
In a Facebook group I belong to, they were sharing these rolled flowers made from Cricut Design Space.. So needless to say I went to design space and started to play. It took a few trial and error flowers to get the hang of it.
This will be your starting flower. There are many different flowers to choose from. For my shadow box, I chose to use 8 inch flowers. They roll up into a nice size for the shadow box.
The end of your flower where you glue to secure it together was not large enough for my liking, so I got out my Creative Memories circle punch and cut circles to adhere to the base of the flower.
I let my flowers fluff out a bit. I didn't want them tight looking from rolling. I just found a way to hold it and let it unravel a bit. Once I had it to where I wanted I placed a bit of hot glue to secure the outside of the flower. I then pushed the flower up so that the base stuck out a bit and placed hot glue all over. I then set it on the round circle I had punched out and pressed down lightly. If you have any unglued portions just place a bit of glue. Watch those fingers! You might walk away with some battle marks LOL.
I used a 9x9 shadow box that I purchased at Michaels. This is a very nice size. They sell larger or smaller. So just make flowers and see what looks best.
I placed a gem on each of the blue flowers for the stars. Glued down the flowers and placed the top of the shadow box on. I then went to my Cricut and cut out Because of the Brave in white vinyl.
It looks so amazing in person.. I hope you will give the rolled flowers a try!
