The best thing about artificial flowers is that they are evergreen. Fake flowers are perfect if you want to create a permanent floral centerpiece for your living room or a springy flower accessory to wear with confidence. Flowers are a timeless fashion trend that you can use to embellish just about anything, from wearing them as barrettes and headbands to putting them on necklaces and rings, or creating a flower brooch. Fabric flowers are sturdier and better quality than paper, which means they really do last forever. Using these flower templates, you can make flower bouquets that will never wilt or die, create trendy floral accessories, or make flower embellishments by the dozen to use in scrapbooking, card making, and general home decorating.
