Instructions

This Cricut thanksgiving gratitude tutorial was contributed by Nicki S. Thanks for sharing your project Nicki, We love it!

I used a blue light grip mat and used reverse tweezers to curl the paper. (You can use a paper quiller) I just rolled it super tightly towards me, working slowly, until it was a very tight flower.

(The spiral has a flap on the end and that is the base of the flower. ) Once I have the flower rolled, I drop it on the table to loosen it up. Turn it upside down and use hot glue to keep the layers together.

You can see a video tutorial here –

 

Flip the bottom flap over the exposed layers. Once I did that I rolled the “petals” back and arranged them to look more lifelike. I just laid them into the shadow box . I did not attach or glue the flowers to the back. They are just squeezed in tightly but you could glue them in place.
