I started by cutting out the flowers. I used the Fresh Blossoms Smooth Cardstock pack from Walmart. Worked perfect for these flowers. Good weight. The flower pattern is from the Silhouette Design Store, Design ID #178393. It took some maneuvering but I was able to get 8 flowers on my mat.
After getting them all cut out I took my thingy (have no idea what it is called but you can see it in the picture below) and added some dimension to the first 3 petals and the center before rolling them. It is not necessary but I wanted to make sure the outer petals curved and lay a little better.
The next step is to roll all of them up. This takes some time. I used my Cricut Quilling Pen that came in a die set I have. I have heard others saying they used a bobby pin to roll them or rolled them by hand. The quilling pen was actually quite easy and fast.
After rolling all of the flowers I used my hot glue gun and applied glue to the center of the flower. Believe me I burn myself a lot doing this. Be forewarned!
Hold them in place until the glue cools.
Next came gluing on all the flowers. I just placed them on however I liked from the center front top to center front bottom. I just made sure mine didn't have same colors next to each other. You can put them on however you would like. The one I made for my daughter is actually rainbow order. It turned out great.
Just apply hot glue on the bottom of the finished flower and hold into place until cool. I pushed pretty good to make sure it held to the wreath and not just the moss. That way I knew it wasn't coming off. I offset each flower so they fit together nicely.
To finish it up I used some wide ribbon I got clearance after Christmas. Works perfect for this. I just measured how long I wanted it and put a bow in it then hung it up with a command hook. Love the way it turned out.
