Making and assembling these flowers is easy when you have a cutting machine. You can use either a Cricut or a Silhouette. To make these large paper flowers I am using a Cricut Maker.
We all have a favorite teacher. That one teacher that sticks with you in your memories through your adult years. I don’t ever remember giving her a gift but I am sure I did.

Fall wreaths are always one of my favorite things to make.
