How to Make Crepe Paper Ranunculus

The Cricut Maker rotary blade cuts crepe paper beautifully. So I cut petals to make a crepe paper ranunculus and turned it into a corsage for Mother’s Day. Read to the end for an awesome Cricut giveaway too!  (some links affiliate)

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make the Crepe Paper Ranunculus:
Crepe paper sheets in dark green, light green, light yellow, light pink and medium pink
Glue gun
Cricut Maker with rotary blade
Blue, light grip mat
Small scraper
Flat back pin
Small piece of felt

Crepe paper sheets pastel colors

Open the ranunculus Design Space project.

Cut each group of petals and the leaf in the correct colors.
