Burlap Flowers? YES!

Hello there!

Today I want to show you these amazing flowers that my Cricut Explore cut for me with the Deep Cut Blade.  I had watched a video from the super fun Country Charm by Tracy and I just had to try my own.  I love burlap so much, but the messy factor of it almost always makes me choose a different material to work with.  Tracy's blog has been a place where I can always find inspiration.  You should check her out!  I mod podged my burlap a bit too heavy so when these flowers were all rolled and set they were a bit hard and since I was making them for a wedding I thought they should be a little softer.  I don't have a ton of die cuts for my  Cuttlebug but after this project, I will be getting so many more! Rolled flowers are my favorite things to make with my Cricut so it seemed as natural as Burlap to make some! Thanks to Tracy for being my inspiration!

This is the card I ended up using.  The wedding colors were cranberry and gold with burlap. It was a very beautiful reception and I loved those burlap flowers with rolled ones!

Thank you for visiting today!
