Have you seen the latest craze..everyone making paper flowers..most are using cardstock or scrapbook paper, have you tried using Cricut's pearl paper? It's thin enough to make rolling the flowers so much easier, and its all the same weight so you don't have to worry about if the cardstock you are using will be to thick and make it hard to roll. Or just to do the cut flowers this paper is great for. Here is a sample of a few that I did this morning using several sheets of the Cricut pearl paper.
Just a little bit about the paper, first its 12 x 12, creates uniquely beautiful paper flowers, wreaths, special decor, etc. They recommend using the Cricut UltraGrip mat, that is the blue mat.. i have used a barely sticky green mat as well..you don't want to use a new green mat this paper will stick way to hard to it.you want to be able to left it off without tearing your cut. Using the Cricut Explore machine you would set your dial to Custom and then choose Pearl Paper, cuts flawless.
