DIY Hot Chocolate Bar with Free "Baby, It's Cold Outside" PrintableYesterday I shared my seasonal Hot Chocolate Bar and promised I would share how I DIY’d some of the fun elements. Today I’m going to share with you the Floral Branch Clips. I am so in love with these sweet Floral Branch Clips that I made with my Cricut Explore (affiliate link for your convenience). I simply adore how they look clipped to branches I stole from the trees in my yard and placed in a tall vase.  They are super simple to make and there are so many options to personalize them.

Simple and Elegant DIY Flower Branch ClipsI made these out of a paper similar to handmade paper that I purchased at Michaels. You could also use linen or burlap, or any other fabric that catches your fancy.

Supplies Needed:

Cardstock or fabric

Foam Glue Dots

Hot Glue

Cricut Explore Cutting Machine

Alligator Clips

Cricut Design Space - Floral Branch Clip TutorialThe first step is to pick a flower from the Cricut Design Space Image Library. I found a simple 5 petal flower that I thought would work well. I inserted the image, sized it to about 3″ x 2.8″ and then duplicated it as many times as I could for my 12×12 canvas.

Floral Cut OutsI sent this to the machine to cut from the beautiful paper I had purchased on the “cardstock” setting. I was able to get 4 clips out of one sheet of 12×12 paper.
