Cricut Fancy Frames & Cricut Flower Shoppe Flower Frame – Cricut Fancy Frames Cartridge Give Away

Our Cricut”fied” CHA Badges

I took my daughter with me to the CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) trade show in Chicago a few weeks ago.  We enjoyed meeting friends in person and taking some seminars and classes.  We were invited to a Provo Craft class where we made these cool frames for our CHA tags.  I fell in LOVE with the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge because I was finally able to make a flower that didn’t look pathetic.  LOL!  My daughter had blown me away the previous evening when she kept up with a speedy class that we took and excelled at making flowers by hand.  Um…that’s not my talent.  So, I was really happy when I redeemed myself by rolling up pieces that the Cricut had cut out and turning them into the pretty flower on the right.  I still think hers is better.  Well, she should be good at it…her name is Lilly.  LOL!  šŸ˜‰

Like the embossed key and circle? We used THIS to make them.

Would you like to know how to make these frames and flowers?  These are the instructions that Provo Craft gave us to share:

Flower Frame Instructions:

Materials: Cricut Expression, Cricut Fancy Frames Cartridge, Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge, Cardstock: 6 sheets of coordinating colors and/or patterns, Adhesive Pen, Adhesive Dots.

Instructions for the Frame:

Using the Cricut and Fancy Frames Cartridge, cut one <Fram7> at 4 1/4″.  Next, cut one <Fram7Lr> and 4 1/4″.  Use adhesive pen to adhere the frame layers (as seen in frame photo above) and set aside.

Instructions for the Flower:

Use the Cricut and Flower Shoppe cartridge.
  Cut out four <Mum5> at 1″.
To cut out the center of the flower use the Cricut and Flower Shoppe cartridge and cut one <Daisy1> at 2″.

Twirl the image starting with the center tab to create the dimensional flower center.  Place adhesive dot at the end and adhere so that it stays rolled.
Cut one <Daisy4> at 2″ and one <Daisy4> at 1 3/4″.
Place adhesive dots on the tabs of the flowers and attach to the end of the flower cut out to create a dimensional shape.

Attach the smaller flower to the larger flower by layering.
Attach the center of the flower to the flowers using adhesive dots.
Add leaves to the back of the flower and adhere to the frame as shown.


Before I left for CHA I bought the Fancy Frames Cricut cartridge, so when I was given an extra at the class I decided to pass it on to you!  Please leave a comment telling me what your favorite Cricut cartridge is.  I’ll use to choose a winner of the Fancy Frames Cricut cartridge on August 8, 2011.  I’ll announce the winner on this post, so be sure to come back and check!


Love the flowers! Iā€™m sure Super daughter picked up some of her talent from you. I love ALL my carts. I try mixing em up when Iā€™m in my crafty room or on the couch with my Gypsy. If I had to pick, right now this minute, Iā€™d say Picturesque. Ask again in 10 minutes and who know? Thanks for the chance to win!
