Leaves template for a backdrop

I think these leaves with many curves are more suitable for the backdrop than a bouquet, as it’s not stiff enough.

I know that these are quite many details and it’s hard to cut with your scissors manually.

It’s more suitable for a Cricut. I would really appreciate if you could support me to buy anything via this affiliate link.
