Make 3D Art quickly using Print, Cut, Draw Features with your Cricut Maker.

Life can be crazy

During the last year my family suffered several severe health scares. We also celebrated engagements, our son's wedding and most recently our Godson was married in April. In Between the excitement shortly before Thanksgiving while ice skating  I suffered a broken leg. As I say my leg pirouetted and I did not causing a spiral fracture requiring surgery. Now I am still recovering from becoming a human tripod for several months but the prognosis is good. It is just a slower process than I expected. Which is why it is so important to stop and take in the beauty of the world around us. Last year my own personal journey of twist and turns is inspiration for this cute little 3D art print.

After you gather your supplies place your paper in your printer. When your Cricut prompts you to print select your printer and then press print. 
The printing is complete simply place the paper in your upper left hand corner of the light grip mat. follow the prompts on your Cricut screen.
Next release the mat from your machine, using the spatula suggested gently lift the paper and fresh cut flowers in the Ball jar to set aside.
