Fabric 3D flowers cut on the Cricut

Back in April I blogged about cutting our Chantilly textiles on the Cricut.  Here’s that post.  It has great tips and a link to a tutorial on how to prepare your fabric for the Cricut mat. 

Today, I’ll show you the flowers I promised.  Just like the fabric bows, they were cut on the Cricut.  The only difference between these flowers and paper ones is getting them glued together.  I prefer to use Liquid Glass when assembling paper 3D flowers.  These required hot glue.  I needed that instant bond because the fabric doesn’t have a memory.  If you roll it up and let go, it wants to unroll and does it quickly!  Thus the hot glue.

Lalia Harris created 3D fabric flowers using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut rolled roses

I discovered that imperfect flowers are the best. See the one on the top right? I had to fix the center and it crumpled. It looks the best of all the flowers I made that day.

 

Hope this inspires you to create today!

  1. These are gorgeous! I agree that some subtle imperfections can result in the most natural-looking blossoms. Thanks for the link to the "toot" too!
