Making rolled flowers is a great way to add some extra wow to your projects. You can customize the size and colors to match your project. Here are a few tips you'll find in this video:
- Mixing and matching papers and sizes makes for a full and interesting bouquet when you group these together.
- When adhering the rolled flowers, I like to use hot glue to adhere them and I place a dab on the base circle and a dab on the last rolled part to hold it all together securely. When using hot glue you can place your glue on the circle and then let the flower go a bit if you want a looser flower.
- If your paper is stiff and hard to shape, try using your heat tool to heat up the paper a bit and it will be more pliable and easy to shape.
- If you'd like a fuller flower, look for an SVG design that has extra petals included that can be added around the outside edge of the flower. My favorite is Cricut Design Space flower #mfgfb53.
Here are the Cricut Design Space files used:
- #m295b4e3 - These are the swirls. They are a great shape and easy to roll.
- #m295b547 - This is a shaped flower.
- #mfgfb53 - This is the flower with the extra petals. I'm absolutely in love with this one.
