Vellum Flowers with Donna

Happy Saturday all you Quick Quotes friends! Donna here today to host the blog for you.

Today I wanted share with you some vellum flowers I made. I found this idea after watching several YouTube videos and took a combination of ideas to make these.


First I started out with Quick Quotes Bundles Travel and Family and pulled out several sheets of the vellum and embossed some of them. After my first flower and leaves I realized the embossing wasn't showing up like I wanted, so the two smaller ones I skipped the embossing.

  • Cut six flowers on the Cricut. 
  • Then inked them with Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk Ink,
  • After it dries hold, the six layers of flowers together, punch a hole, and put a brad or eyelet in the center.
  • Now here where the fun comes in, spray with Creative Imagination mist (gold) on both sides of the flowers, take a heat gun and dry until it just starts curling.
  • Using your hand, shape the leaves while the are still warm or you can let it go and let nature do it's thing. I love the way it curled up in the middle.
And here is the layout I made using the flowers. Can anyone guess what the scallop from at top right hand over the banner is from? It is from the bow on top of the present from the Quick Quotes Birthday Bag o' Chips. Earlier I had messed up the package part, but being a hoarder of scrapbook supplies I kept it around to re purpose!
