Perfect giant paper flowers made using your Cricut Maker. Use the new Scoring Wheel for perfect score lines on these paper daisies. Learn how easy it is below.
I saw some similar giant daisies made by Cricut and I fell in love immediately but I wanted to do something different for my own Craft Room. I still wanted the giant flowers but I wanted them to match the rainbow theme and be coordinated in the coloring.
I found some half wooden circles and adhered them to the foam half circles using some hot glue. Spray them with a soft yellow from Rustoleum that matched the Lia Griffith crepe paper I had on hand.
Switch it up a bit and use some purple or pink cardstock and make Gerber Daisies
How to Make Cricut Paper Flowers
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore
- Large Cardstock
- Cricut Scoring Wheel or Scoring Tool
- Wooden Half Circles (1.5″ size)
- Styrofoam Rounds in different sizes (6″ and 4″)
- Hot Glue
- Yellow Spray Paint
- Yellow Crepe Paper (use with the Maker or hand
–cut if you have the Explore)
Load your 12×24″ or 12×18″ cardstock on to the 12×24″ Cricut mat and use either the scoring wheel or scoring tool to create the notches that you’ll need in your petals.
After you’ve scored and cut your petals, use a scraper tool or a credit card to bend and manipulate your cardstock to make them look more life-like. Just curl the very outsides lightly to make a slight bend in the cardstock.
how to create the center of your giant paper flower
Cut your styrofoam rounds in half to act as the center of your flower. You can buy the foam in half rounds but they’re more expensive and I figured I’d save some coin and the back will be hidden anyways.
Use your hot glue and glue your half wooden circles to the top of the foam rounds. After you’ve placed your wooden circles on the foam, spray paint it with a coordinating yellow.
Cut your crepe paper on your Cricut Maker using the rotary wheel. Place your crepe paper so that the grain goes up and down. When cutting crepe paper on the Cricut Maker, you need to pay attention to the grain of the paper. The flowers in Design Space are already placed on the mat just how it should cut.
Now for the fabulous Infusible Ink Giveaway. I have played around with the markers but I have not done any of the sheets quite yet. It’s an amazing product that has zero fade when used on the correct blanks.
FYI – You do not need to have Cricut blanks but you do need to use shirts that have a higher count of polyester. A 60/40 blend will work fine but the colors will fade a little and white is always best.a Rafflecopter giveaway
