How- to For the 3D Flowers on Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

Here is a quick tutorial on how to make the cute 3D flowers from our New Art Philosophy Cartridge.  This one is from page 69 and uses the Shift> Font>  <heart3>,  cut @ 4",  pressure 4>, blade 3>, speed 3.

Start at the small outside end.  Use your CMTH tweezers and roll it around the end of the tweezers.  Keeping it tight while you roll.
 Keep going all the way around the flower untill you get to the center.  Keep it tight.
 Stop rolling when you get to here. 
 Place a dab of Liquid Glass or use a glue dot in the center of the round part.
 At this point you can release the tweezers and let the rose open up some.  The way it looks good to you.
 Holding the rose in your hand push it into the glue dot.  This will hold it in place.
That is it!  You can bend the petals too to give it more shape but it is very easy to do.  Add a couple of green leaves from page 67 and it will be complete.  Check back tomorrow I will have a project using this flower and the muffin box.  See you then.
As you can tell I get lots of use out of my mats.
Hope this helps.  Let me know what you think.
