Gerbera Daisys - Sure-Cuts-A-Lot



With half a sheet of paper and a few minutes work, you can make these great gerbera daisys. Here's how:
Use the file below with sure cuts a lot (this is a sure cuts a lot file, NOT DS) and cut your flowers -I have reposted this as a svg file. After importing, size in SCAL so that the largest flower is about 3.5 inches in diameter.
LINK WAS MOVED TO 4-20-10 Post

Using inks or chalks, darken your edges of the flowers - getting darker as you do each smaller size. The backs of the flowers will show, so do both sides.

Lay flowers on a cushioned surface (I use a sheet of kids craft foam) and a stylus, make a crease down the center of each petal on the 4 largest flowers. This will cause them to curve a bit in and up.

Use a toothpick to wrap the petals of the smaller 4 flowers.

Layer the flowers with a small dot of glue between each layer.

Use your flowers to decorate cards, gifts, photos or attach to a stem to with florist tape for an arrangement.

absolutely beautiful! I wonder if there's a way to do it in scal. I almost never use my cartridges now. I'm gonna try it anyway, cuz who could pass this up? TFS!

I love this file. but when I tried to cut it it shows a bunch of N's no flower am I doing something wrong?

Jessica L said...

What a great idea. I look forward to using this one. One quick question, to enlarge the scale is it to drag in the lower corner to the desired size?

shirley said...

Yes, just grab the corner arrow and size it so the largest flower is about 3.5 inches- or whatever size you want your flower to be.

Neither of these links work, and I know it's over a year since you posted this, but the Gerbera Daisy would be perfect for my mom's birthday card in a few weeks! Any chance we can get a link to the .svg again, or could you email it to megan167@gmail.com? Thanks!!
