  4. Resize grouping to 9.5” high.
  5. Duplicate the grouping and resize the second set to 8” high.

  7. Ungroup all sets of patterns.
  8. Delete the extra leafy pattern pieces, keeping just the one largest set.
  9. Click to the Color Sync tab to sort images by paper color (you may change the colors to whatever you like):
    ~change the largest flower petals to cream-colored; change the ~medium-sized flower petals to grey colored; and lastly, change the ~smallest flower petals to white-colored;
    ~change all the pistil shapes to the black colored mat;
    ~change the leaf shapes to the green-colored mat.
  10. Delete the smallest sized flower pistils. Duplicate the medium-sized flower pistils two times. Use these medium-sized pistil shapes for the smallest sized flowers.
  11. With the machine set to Cricut Maker, select “Make It” in Design Space.
  12. Set material type to Cardstock, choosing the appropriate weight based on your paper.
  13. Place the first paper color onto the light grip mat.

  16. Remove the cut pieces from the cutting mat.

  18. Start by curling each of the flower petals using the wooden dowel. You are aiming for a wavy effect with petals, with the curls in different directions.
  19. Glue five of the larger petals to the backside of one of the discs, aligning the slits of the petals with the notches in the disk.
  20. Glue the five smaller petals to the second disc in the same way as the first.
  21. Layer the small set of petals over the larger ones, covering the gaps between the larger petals. Glue together at the center.
  22. Glue both of the round pistil pieces into the center of the flower.
  23. Fold the final piece along the score mark (this will be towards the inside).
  24. Curl the rounded ends of the final black piece in the same directions. Roll along the length of the piece to create a black rounded “ball”. Glue to hold together. Glue it to the center of the flower.
  25. Turn the picture frame face down. Starting in one corner, staple the end of the twine in place to secure and zig-zag the twine across the back of the frame. Turn the frame over.
  26. Practice the positioning of the flowers until you are happy with the arrangement. This arrangement has the largest flower in the corner, a medium one above, and two small ones on either side.
  27. Glue the leaves and the flowers onto the frame in the desired arrangement.
