As featured in our Pacific Islands bouquet for Cricut, this tropical greenery will wow you! Using the all-new Cricut Maker, we were able to cut not only paper, but also felt and leather to create these lush leaves. We’re head over heels for this new machine… Learn more and see the full bouquet series here. Simply download our SVG cut files and use your Cricut Maker cutting machine to craft. Take a trip to Pacific Island paradise with this project today!
If you don’t have access to the latest cutting machine, you can certainly use our PDF templates and scissors, though it will take you a bit more time. To give your bouquet more shape and volume, back your felt and leather leaves with paper for stability, then glue floral wire in between using a low-temp hot glue gun.
We used a wide assortment of paper, felt and leather for this project. For our paper, we used an assortment from My Mind’s Eye Green Tones Variety Pack. As for felt, we used Benzie Design’s Moss, Meadow and Evergreen. In terms of wire, we used 16 and 18-gauge floral wire which you can find here. And lastly, we found our leather at our local leather store and used a green craft paint to tint accordingly.
