Handmade Flowers...

If your looking for the FCCB Cricut Crawl.....link HERE!

The new challenge this week at The Paper Variety is to add handmade flowers to you project. 

Handmade Flowers are fun to make and the options are really endless.  You can roll spiral flowers, make flowers out of buttons, ribbon, fabric or cut them with dies.    That seems to be the hardest part about making handmade flowers, just figuring out what type of flower to make. 

Handmade Flowers

For this challenge, I decided to make a gift bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and I added a spiral flower cut from Art Philosophy.    Seriously, this Art Philosophy cartridge is amazing, if I had to recommend one Cricut cartridge to take to a deserted island (that had electricity of course) I'd choose this one.

I added some silver liquid pearls along the rim of the flap and some crystal Stickles inside the flower. I've been totally into Jute Twine and Burlap lately so I added a Jute handle to the bag and tied it all together with a Jute bow.
