Improvising

While working on a project for a challenge this week, I came up short on some items.  I don’t have any of these little beauties from CTMH.  And I need them now

So I decided to improvise. 
P1030699
Using one of the B&T papers from the Lucy collection, I cut the scalloped rose on my Cricut using my Art Philosophy cartridge at 1.75.”  I turned down the speed to medium and made certain my paper was well adhered to the mat. 
Here’s my tip for rolling such small items:  Spray them with water or a mix of rubbing alcohol mixed with our Perfect Pear paints in a Mini Mister and start by wrapping them around our piercing tool.  The paper had to be soft and flexible in order to make a smooth roll, otherwise it would have just folded at the bottom of each petal. 
Aside from the spritzing, they didn’t take any longer than a big flower.  I rolled all 6 while watching a movie with my sweetheart.  They held their shape until this afternoon when I glued them together with Liquid Glass.
In the next week, I’ll post the finished project. Until then, have a crafty day!
Here’s what I used.  Click each tile for more info.
