I’ve always loved how bright and elegant orchids are! Orchids in nature are challenging to keep up, so I am delighted to share this paper orchid tutorial in collaboration with Michaels Craft Stores.
I crafted these beauties from pink and purple cardstock with the help of my Cricut Maker machine!
My Cricut is always the powerhouse of my crafting success. Michaels Craft Store is my favorite place to shop for supplies – I’m there almost every week!
