Default Check out these gorgeous paper flowers!!!!!!!!!!!



These flowers were made using a cutting file designed and sold by Lauren Meader. Her files are sold in formats for different digital cutters (Pazzles, Wishblade, CraftRobo, Cricut, Gazelle, etc). I was playing around with the file I bought from her and these flowers are the result....mind you I've not added anything to the center of them yet. My DH could not believe that I made these out of cardstock.....in person they look SO real!!! They are much prettier than Primas!!!

Here is a link to her blog where she has a wonderful video showing how to create them and here is a link to her online store where you can puchase the cutting file and it's only $2.50 (so worth it!). She has a lot more really nice cutting files!!!

Enjoy! Pam

The first one (peach) took a good bit of time as I'd never made one before! I figure that last one I made (bottom purple) took about 15 minutes! I think they are definitely one of those things that the more you make the quicker you get...practice makes perfect!LOL

Diana, try this............click on the link to her blog and there is a link above the photo of her sample. It is underlined and in pink and it will take you to the file at her store! Let me know if this worked for you.

Love your flowers Pam. I am an avid monthly shopper on Lauren's site. I am totally tech challenged and haven't bought the cutting files. I have the Cricut Exp, but just don't feel confident to use the cutting programs.

Still can't connect. I'll keep trying- it is probably my computer- certainly can't be the user.

Finally was able to get to the site. Thank you so much for showing us the flowers- can't wait to cut one out and make it. Thinking how perfect for Mother's Day cards.
