Instructions

Begin by cutting the Gerbera SVG file with the help of your Cricut or Silhouette machine.

Lay out your pieces on a clean working surface.

Begin with the two large flower pieces. Use a bone folder to curl the petals outwards (as if you’re curling ribbon). Repeat for both flower pieces.

Once all the petals are curled outward, take one of the flower pieces and fold each petal inwards.

Once you fold over each petal, open them back out (only slightly) outwards, and you’ll find that it creates a circle in the center naturally.

Repeat the same for the second flower.

Add hot glue to the center of one of the flowers. Add the other flower on top, securing by pressing down in the center. When you’re layering the flowers, be sure to offset them from one another so that the petals are not perfectly aligned.

Now, it’s time to put together the center portion of the paper gerbera daisies. If you take a look at your cut-outs, you’ll find that the center is comprised of rows of petals. The thicker rows will be on the outside and the thinner, on the inside.

The first step to creating the center portion of the gerbera daisies is to connect the thin rows so that they create one long line.

Hint: When gluing the rows together, you will want all the pieces facing the same direction.

Place hot glue on the top portion of one thin row. Secure a second cut-out on the glued portion. Continue for the remaining thin row cut-outs.
