In the video for the Cosmos flower, there are no instructions for the lines cut, I’m not sure what to do with those pieces. Also, the green leaf is cut in half and again I’m not sure how to deal with it. Do you have written instructions?
Those lines need to be changed to SCORE in Design Space for making it, otherwise they will cut 🙂
Hello All!!!! The “score” lines on the SVG file work PERFECTLY with the score wheel on the Maker! This flower is beyond easy and amazing for a filler flower in any arrangement.
I just recently purchased a Silhouette Curio and want to make flowers with it (among other things, of course). Can these be made with cardstock paper? Can any of your other projects be made with cardstock?
Hi Michelle! Text weight is much easier to work with when making flowers and greenery (unless otherwise noted), but you can use whatever paper you’d like for your projects 🙂
I’m not sure if you are aware that the SVG files does not have any score line.
Thank you! The correct file is now available 🙂
How do you estimate how many sheets of each color paper you’ll need to make each flower? I’m planning to make the floral bouquet but after looking at all the paper sizes (sheet size and pack size) on the Paper-Papers website, I’m a bit overwhelmed.
I’d recommend you buy the minimum quantity pack available, which will be either 25 or 50 sheets for text weight metallic paper depending on the brand 🙂
Where do you purchase the purple frosted metalic paper for this project? I have the green but not the other colors: thank you
They’re all from Paper-Papers.com 🙂
I would like to use my cricut for these but it won’t let me download SVG file. Made the Anemone flowers and they turned out beautiful. thank you
