Unscripted Sketches has a new challenge each Saturday. This is the card I created for that challenge. There is only a small amount of Cricut in it. I used George to cut some of the basic shapes.
The background paper is from a stack Donna and I shared so I don't have the cover to know the name (sorry). The bottom layer of the flower is made by cutting a 12" X 1 1/2" strip. Score every 1/4" and fan fold. Glue the ends together. Working on a flat surface, fan the bottom out making a circle. Place something on top for now to keep it from popping back up. Cut a circle of paper and glue on the bottom of the flower to help stabilize it. The top layer is another strip cut at 3/4" X12". Use the same directions for this layer. Glue it to the bottom flower and place a large brad or embellishment on top to cover the hole. It's very simple.
Please let me know how you make out with the pleated flowers. If I can help you, please email me. Thank you for following our blog. God bless you. Peggy
