Also used: Tulle, hot glue gun Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge and quilling tool.
1.Using the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge or flower patterns (visit Amber's blog of the My Mind's Eye blog for pattern), cut the following:
•9 - 3 1/2" flowers (one large background piece, one middle piece and one rolled center per flower)
•9 - 2 1/4" flowers
**use the auto fill button to cut as many on a page as possible if you are using a Cricut to cut the flowers.
2.Mix and match patterns and set out in piles so you are ready to create flowers.
3.Glue each piece together, if needed.
4.Using your fingers or the quilling tool, roll and fold petals to create depth.
5.Roll flower centers.
6.Set aside a few of the centers and add embellishments (buttons, chipboard pieces and brads) to centers of flowers.
7.Build flowers using liquid glue or glue gun (I don't like to wait for the glue to dry, so I used a glue gun).
8.Hang lanterns and adhere flowers to them in diagonal rows mixing flower shapes and colors. (I used a wreath hook on my counter)
9.Hang from a chandelier, curtain rod or outdoors from an umbrella, tree or pergola. Use your imagination...
