Theme Day Thursday - My Cricut Craft Room

Today at My Cricut Craft Room we made 3D carnations! 
I wasn't sure how to approach this other than making tissue paper flowers so I started googling. I found a post from MCCR from early in 2012 by Shelley HERE is her post.

I cut scalloped circles from the Lite Lovely Floral cart. I did 9 circles each and then put them on pipe cleaners (I could only find white ones).
Eventually they will find themselves on the corner of a ribbon or bulletin board, but for now,

Here are close ups of a couple of the flowers

I cut them at 3, 3.5 and 4 inches. Then I sprayed them with a mister and crunched them up and dried them with my heat tool.
The paper I used is My Mind's Eye.

Be sure to visit My Cricut Craft Room and see what my DT sisters have come up with!!
