The centers of each bloom are finished with a glitter paper in either black or lime green which are two common colors for the gerbera centers. I have provided the pattern below for both a printable template and an SVG file for all of you who do have cutting machines. Of course to save time so I can get onto the next project for you, I used my Cricut Explore to make this gorgeous bouquet.
