Last week I was a guest designer at Passionately Artistic sharing my Valentine rolled rose wreath. I wanted to post this on my blog too but didn't get a chance till now as things have been so crazy with Blog Hops, Design Teams, etc. So here it is.
Today I am sharing a project for Valentines Day. Recently Provo Craft came out with an Art Philosophy Cart that is amazing. I love making the rolled flowers. There are three different rolled flower shapes on the cartridge which I used to make this wreath. The cuts are found on page 68, 69 and 70. I cut them at 2.75 inches so I can get 16 on a page. If you don't have a Cricut keep reading and I will show you how to make the same flowers without a Cricut.
So here is my finished wreath.
Closeup of roses and ribbon.
This wreath started with a 12 inch straw wreath which I wrap with ribbon.
This is what the cut shapes look like when they are cut out.
For this wreath I used double sided K and Company paper.
You will need a Quilling tool which cost a few bucks at your local craft store. You catch the edge with the prongs and roll the flower to form the rose.
In this picture I am showing if you roll away from you what the three roses look like and if you roll towards you what they will look like with the same paper.
Now if you don't have a Cricut you can hand draw the shape. It doesn't have to be perfect.
I also love to make these with book pages or dictionaries I get at the Dollar Store. When I hand cut book pages I do three at a time.
Here are some finished flowers from scrapbook paper, book pages and dictionary pages. The size depends on how loosely or tightly you glue them. These are so cute on cards, layouts, altered crafts, etc.
Here are a couple other examples I made using the same technique.
Another wreath made with double sided Christmas paper but could definitely be left up all year.
A rose covered press board monogram. I made these for gifts and they were a big hit.
