- Using your Cricut machine, cut the word “Mom” using the Jasmine cartridge/Shadow feature. Embellish with Platinum Stickles.
- Tie a bow around your vase. Wrap the center with copper wire and hang your charm.
- Using your Cricut machine, cut your flowers with the Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge. Use various flower shapes ranging in size from ½’ to 4 ½”. You’ll find the more layers the better! We recommend at least 6 layers per flower.
- Distress the petals by wrinkling, sanding, or inking some of them. Add dimension by curling the petals of the bottom layers under and the top layers up.
- Poke 3 copper wires through the center of a jumbo pop dot, and then through the center of each flower layer so that about 1” to 1 ½” of wire sticks out of the flower. Spiral the short ends of the wire “inside” the flower and wrap the opposite ends around a wooden dowel to hold your flower in place.
- Cut lengths of ribbon to match your various sized dowels. Apply tape runner adhesive along one edge, and wrap it around the dowel (Lengthwise) -completely covering it.
- Arrange the faux greenery and flowers in your vase. Add touches of curled copper wire to the arrangement. Attach leaves (cut with Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge, then embossed and distressed with ink) to the flower stems with more copper wire. Finally, apply Stickles to your flower petals to make them shine and sparkle.
