Is this the correct svg pattern for the asters? The svg files are very different than the pdf pattern for the flowers. While I understand that some aster can have very thin petals, the svg flower petals are so much thinner than the pdf pattern as well as being quite a bit smaller. The svg file also has extra parts that don’t match the instructions and included leaf patterns doesn’t look anything like the aster leaves I am familiar with.
Thanks for catching this error! It was linking to the SVG file from this potted Aster (https://liagriffith.com/frosted-paper-asters/). The correct SVG has been uploaded.
What is the file name for the greenery included with the asters?
Oh yes! It’s actually grass from this wreath project: https://liagriffith.com/papercut-grass-wreath/
Step 3 in the pictures should say curl not cut
Thanks for letting us know 🙂
