Springtime Favors

Hello everyone todays post is a small Heartshaped metal favor tin decorated with the flowers from "April Showers" the Spring Collection Cartridge from

 I wanted to try to make some flowers from this cartridge and I LOVE the flowers, they work perfect for making little flowers and big flowers.

Supplies Used:
April Showers Cartridge
12 x 12 mat
Cricut Expressions
Cardstock (2 colors-blue/green)
beads(for centers of flowers)

This cartridge is super easy to use and super FUN tooo! And has AWESOME prices on all of their cartridges and other scrapbooking goodies, dont forget FREE shipping on all orders over 25.00!!! Wooohooo cant beat that!! :)
First I cut my blue flowers =

6 at 3/4 of an inch
3 @1"
1 @ 1 1/4 "
Now for the Green=
1 @ 1"
2 @ 3/4 "
Now scrunch your flowers each one, and then glue them together. You will use 3 of the 3/4 inch flowers to make 1 small flower, and then do the same with the other 3, then use the 1 large( 1 1/4") for the large flower and use the 3 1" for the middle of it. let set, and then glue to the green flower, and add your beads to the centers.
These are super fun to make and easy too. I think they would work perfect for shower gifts,wedding favors or even baby shower favors with a little tag hanging :)
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
