Gerbera daisies are one of my favorite flowers. I wanted some bright colored giant paper flowers in my craft room so I decided on sunflowers and gerbera daisies. They go really well together.

You probably could cut this out by hand if you are feeling very patent but I would recommend having a cutting machine for this template.

This template goes great with my giant sunflower template. You can buy the set here.
