Rolled Paper Flower Spring Wreath--with Cricut Explore Air 2!

 Rolled Paper Flower Spring Wreath--with Cricut Explore Air 2!
 I love my Cricut Explore Air 2!
I received all these fun goodies to review.
Cricut knew I'd be hooked and swear my loyalty to them for the rest of my life.
This machine is uhhhhhh-mazing!
Read more about the set up and first projects on this post here.
 For this fun project, I used the Cricut Design Space.
Just +Create New Project.
Then "insert images"
Then search for 3D flower.
You'll find tons, but I used the spiral looking ones.
 They are available with Cricut access.

Adjust the size and click "go" to cut!
Load the paper, I just used bright colored cardstock.
Some of the flowers I cut were full size 12X12 sheets, some I made 4 on one page.
 Cut all the spirals, they pull easily off the mat without ripping!
 Take one at a time, and a hot glue/gun.
 Start rolling the outside to inside.  Add a dab of hot glue occasionally,
to keep the rolling in place and tight.
 Roll to the end or center...where there is a large circle, that's the base.
 Add a big glob of hot glue and press it down on a silicone mat.
 Press until cooled.
This will keep the coil nice and tight.
 Cute and done!
Now repeat for all the other flower coils!
 I love adding yellow centers and wrapping colors around them.
 I also cut out a bunch of green leaves.
I have a small wreath form and I am ready to hot glue flowers right on to it!
 Add glue, hold in place while it cools and sets.
Repeat.
I love the bright colors!
 Add leaves and maybe a ribbon or a banner!
It's cute and perfect for Spring!
 I love paper flowers!
