Flowers for You by Jessica
It's Designer Jess here today with my first project of the month - a gorgeous Flower Rose Frame - perfect for Mother's Day or Teacher Gifts!
I have wanted to make 3D Roses with my Rinea Foiled Paper forever....and I FINALLY picked myself up a brand new Cricut machine - so it was finally time! The colors I chose for this project were Fuchsia/Gold Glossy Solid, Blush/Gold Glossy Solid, and Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Solid.
To make the roses, I used my Cricut machine and a rose SVG cut file (sorry, I had it saved on my computer, and I can't remember where it came from!!). I uploaded the SVG file into Cricut Craft Room and set it up to cut!
I loaded up a light tack mat with my Rinea Foiled Paper (one of my older mats that was NOT brand new!!!). If it's too tacky, you risk tearing the layers of the foiled paper apart when you remove it from the cutting mat.
Once my roses were all cut, I used double-sided tape to adhere all my layers. I made nine flowers in total. I shaped the petals as I went - that is the most awesome part of using Rinea Foiled Paper - it HOLDS it's shape! Plus, once you have all the flowers built, you can still arrange and re-arrange the petals until you have it to your liking!
To create the final project, take your frame (mine was from the dollar store and was an 8.5x11" frame) and remove the glass. I kept the mat background and added a piece of the Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Paper to peek through as my base. I reattached the frame backing and flipped it over, then hot-glued my flowers in place. A good tip is to arrange the flowers how you want them first before gluing, then lift them up one by one as you glue them down. Then your spacing remains correct.
Fluff your petals to your liking once more, and now your beautiful 3D Frame is ready for gift giving!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to make some frames of your own.
See you again soon!
