Want to make something like this for your home? It's really easy, I promise! Get ready to roll some paper and let's get started!
Start with the Cricut Flower Shoppe digital image set or cartridge (depending on what version of the Cricut you have) and cut out at least 30 flowers. I used 36 flowers in my frame, all cut at the same size (11" x 11").
Helpful hint: Use double-sided pattern paper so your flowers have a fun design on the inside and the outside.

Don't have a Cricut? Follow my instructions for a felt rosette and cut the paper out by hand. It's the same idea.
Once all of your spiral pieces are cut out, use a hot glue gun to secure the center piece. Dab a little hot glue on the end and fold over a few times before you start rolling.
Hold onto the center and begin rolling the spiral up, keeping the bottom edge matched up.
Keep rolling until you reach the circle base piece at the end of the spiral.
If you want the flower to look like a bud, glue it in place now.
If you want your flower to be fuller, hold the flower in your hand and let it gently unroll.
When the flower is the desired size, put a generous amount of hot glue on the circle base at the end of the spiral and set the flower in place.
Rolling all of the flowers took me about two movies (3-4 hours). When all of your flowers are ready, start to arrange them in place on an old frame. I used a framed canvas I found at a thrift store. I covered the existing painting with a few sheets of scrapbook paper and then glued the flowers right to the painting.
Squish the flowers together to create a nice effect. Be sure to use different papers and flowers to give the piece depth and variety.
