Giant Flowers help... as requested from facebook

Sunday's Blog hop post should be up between 10-10:30am EST.

Cricut Giant Flowers


Ok the trick for Giant Flowers is this...
(in my opinion)
1. Look at the assembly page and see HOW MANY of each you need to cut.... before you even get started....
2. Your base has all of the little slits to fit the other petals into.
3. I go through with 3 different colored gel pens.... I use the gel pen to color all of the slits that goes with each petal.... look at the book and what I am saying will make sense....
4. After you have color coded the little slits, apply adhesive to the front AND back of your base that you color coded the slits
5. Fluff your petals first, meaning roll them or ink the edges. I like to roll the paper over a pen, pencil or marker to curl the petal outward before I put it together.
6. Then slide the petals into the little slot they go in... start with the slots on the top with the smaller petals then work your way down the base and to the bigger petals....
7. As you fit the petals into the slots push them so they stick to the adhesive you put on the base... apply more adhesive as needed to hold the petals to the base.
8. Adhesive is the key to this otherwise it will fall apart.
I hope this helps.......
