Rolled flowers using Cricut's pearl paper

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.

Comes in lots of different colors

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 don't want to use a new green mat this paper will stick way to hard to 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.

  1. Thanks for this. I caught the Cricut Pearl Papet when it was on sale. Love the look and feel of it. Will be using that in my next flower making projects.
