As part of our Rocky Mountain bouquet for Cricut, our felt peonies are a favorite floral craft from our archives. With the release of the new and improved Cricut Maker, we decided to bring this project back and provide you with a set of SVG cut files to make your crafting simpler than ever before. If you don’t have access to this new cutting machine, don’t forget you can always cut by hand using a trusty pair of scissors! Simply download, cut and follow our step-by-step instructions for dreamy peony paradise.
