BBTB2 Challenge; Flowers

Hey there, I’m hosting the current challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) site. The challenges last for two weeks and I hope you join us. The current challenge theme!

I do not have a green thumb at all so the idea of "growing" flowers using my Cricut is one that I can do!
I decided to make a Congratulations card for my coworker (first time grandmother) with a pop up flower. I got the idea, SVG and instructions on the A Piece of Rainbow website. Even though the project is simple, I highly recommend watching the video.

Tip: All flower pieces come in as one image. Ungroup and then select each piece and group (there are tiny cut lines on each flower and they are separated if you don’t group them). Once you do that, select all of the pieces and group again. The reason why I regrouped is so when I sized the largest flower piece, they would all cut out to size. I hope that makes sense.

I adjusted the flower size to fit both a standard A2 card. Isn’t this so fun? I can’t wait to give it to her. The baby isn’t due until May.

Here’s the front of the card but the best part is the inside! I also used my Cricut to cut the scalloped circle for the “congratulations”.

Now it's your turn...create a flower project and link it to the BBTB2 site and please let us know how you used your Cricut or what cut you used.

  3. What a cute card. I love seeing people's faces when there is a fun surprise like this inside. I am sure she will love it and you certainly have a green thumb with the Cricut.
