Cricut Corsage

Remember way back when for Mother's Day your Dad would get a corsage for your mom to wear on Mother's Day at church. Things are much more casual at church these days, but I decided to make a corsage (or a crossant as my oldest son says) for my Mom that won't die they next day.

I totally scaplifted (or stole however you think of it) this idea from a Cricut Army Demonstrator who was so generous in giving one to me. She had made then for a swap at the Provo Craft Demo Army Training Convention that I was at in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. Everywhere I went people commented on how pretty my flower was.

I wanted to make my own so I went to Hobby Lobby to purchase the fabric, I was determined to only buy fabric.

The orginal designer, cut out the flowers with her cricut, but she said it was really hard on the blade and went throught alot of them cutting out the fabric, you could do this you just need to adhere freezer paper to the back of the fabric before you cut it out with your cricut. I choose to make a template.
I made a 4", 3",2" and a 1" but the 1" was too small. If I did it again I would start with a 5" flower and go down from there. The flower is from George.

Using a Sharpie Marker (love the Sharpie Marker) I just traced on my fabric. I wanted 4 of each size so each flower has 12 flowers total.

For the backing I just punched some of the cardboard I used to make the templet, then punch holes in the circle to place the pin and hot glued them together.

So here is the first layer

second layer

third layer
and.............tah dah!

My finished flower. This does look very handsome on a black sweater. 
The least amount of fabric I could purchase at Hobby Lobby was 1/4 of a yard so with all the mateial left over I couldn't make just one so I made 7 more.
I ran out of white ribbon so I used the pink ribbon (cute huh)
Thank you to the lady who made them originally for the Chicago Training I am sorry I met so many people that weekend I totally forgot her name.
Happy Mother's Day to you, and you Oh, and you too.
