Can you believe it has been nearly 8 years since I made this frosted paper gardenia? Although it is still one of our most popular projects, I felt like it was time to come up with a new design for this flower.

This pattern is simple to cut by hand or you can use a cutting machine. Along with the full gardenia bloom, you will also learn how to make the leaves for this flower and add a bud.
