 DIY Valentine's Decor Paper Flower Wreath with Cricut Maker

Roses are red, Violets are blue, The Cricut Maker is amazing for Valentine Home Decor too!  If you've stuck around my blog long enough, you'll know I am allergic to flowers.  I love making flowers out of paper, they are bright and cheery and look beautiful.  Valentine's day decor is so much fun with shades of pink and red...hearts and flowers...and add some sparkly gold for a crowning finish!
I love the varied shades of pink...I love the glittery gold.  I love how this Valentine's decor wreath turned out.  I am addicted to paper flowers and this amazing wreath can be finished in an afternoon.

You will need:

Cricut Maker
Cricut Scoring Wheel
Cricut Cardstock 12x24 Red Tones
Cricut 12x24 Light Grip Mat
Cricut Glitter Cardstock
Riley Blake Polka Dot Fabric
20" Styrofoam Wreath
Hot Glue/Gun
Cricut Design Space™

And these 5 CDS projects:

Flowers in Pink
Flowers in Red
Flowers in Bright Pink
Leaves in Gold
Accordion Flower

Here's the red tones paper pack:  I love the varied shades of pink.  This is perfect for all your Valentine's day crafting needs!
Begin by placing colored cardstock on the cutting mat.  It does not really matter which file you do in which color.  Just pick the colors that speak to you.
I love the 12x24 cutting mat size...and the matching size cardstock is magnificent!  Some of the images need scoring, so have the scoring wheel ready to swap out with the cutting blade.  This machine is so smart, it will always let you know what tool it needs.
I quickly peel off the excess paper right off the mat.
Then carefully use the spatula tool and remove the flowers.
Get a fat quarter of fabric and cut it into 1.5 inch strips.
Use the hot glue gun to wrap and glue the fabric around the wreath form.
After the wreath is covered, it's time to build the flowers.  Fold the accordion flower on the scored lines.  Hot glue the 2 strips of red paper together and to each other to form a circle.  Hot glue it on to a scrap of paper.
Hot glue the scallop flower over the top of the red flower.
Then attach and hot glue the pink strip together and onto the stack.
Top with the smaller scallop.
Now simply hot glue the flowers onto the wreath.
Roll up the swirl pieces and hot glue them as centers in the flowers.
Continue to fill the wreath with all those beautiful pinks.
I love the polka dotted fabric, so I left some of it showing, but feel free to fill up the wreath as much as you like!
Finish it off with some gorgeous glittery gold cardstock leaves.  Use one sheet of gold paper and a smaller mat.  Use the scoring wheel and blade to cut a dozen leaves.
Fold them along the score lines for dimension.
The gold glitter is the perfect finishing touch!
Hot glue the leaves under and around the flowers.

I absolutely love how it turned out!
