Paper Flower Pomander

I made this flower pomander as an entry for the Cricut Circle January Monthly Challenge:  Scraplift a circle blog project!  A perk of the Cricut Circle is access to their Cricut Circle blog, which in my humble opinion is worth the membership fee alone.  Such inspiration!  So when asked to make one of their projects for a challenge is was more like, "Which one?" 

For the challenge, they require you to use at least 2 or more cricut cuts.  This project has 176 separate flower cuts.  I chose the October 15 entry, Nancy Damiano's paper flower pomander as my project to scraplift.  Nancy had used a cuttlebug daisy and chrysanthemum quiling kits to create her flowers.  I just used my cricut and the Forever Young cartridge to make my flowers.  Each flower is actually 4 flower cuts and pinned on a five inch Styrofoam ball with a floral pin.  In addition, to qualify you must use at least two products from the sponsors of the Cricut Circle.  I used Bazzill Basics for my card stock of choice on this project.  The ribbon was attached to the top with some stick pins from the Your Family History Scrapbook kit by Creating Keepsakes.
