Cooking With Cricut May Flowers Challenge

Today the challenge at Cooking with Cricut is "May Flowers" - it's such a versatile challenge I think we'll see lots of different projects this week which is exciting!

This weekend we are having a big " birthday bash" for my kids and my niece and nephew. They all have birthdays within a month of each other so we get the whole family together and celebrate all four at once. The theme this year is "Luau".

I used Mother's Day Bouquet and created the lei for my daughter:

Each flower is cut at 2 inches. At first I just had them flat, but realized it didn't look "real" at all. So, I scored each petal and folded it up slightly. I used one of my cricut tools to poke a hole in the center and threaded it with pink twine.

Head over to Cooking with Cricut and post your project with flowers on it. We'd love to see what you create!


  1. Oh Melissa, what a cute idea! I never would have thought to make a lei for this challenge! Very "out of the box"! The papers you have chosen are awesome as well.


  2. Beautiful papers! What a labor of love, Melissa!

  3. Thanks everyone. The paper is actually all American Girl paper. LOL. I love those papers, so bright and I tend to use them more than any other brand! (I just wish they had cardstock!)

  4. Love that you made this gorgeous lei. the flowers look awesome pinched up like that. Gorgeous colors.


If you enjoyed my projects or have feedback I'd love your comments and always love new followers!
