This is four classic Japanese flower designs: Cherry blossom, Plum blossom, Bamboo leaf and Chrysanthemum.

 I don't know much about Chrysanthemum, but the three designs Plum blossom, Cherry blossom and Bamboo are often seen together in Japanese art. They are called The Three Companions of Cold  because the plants  survive cold winters and bloom again in the early spring. Used in art and stitching, they are symbols of strength and resilience, and of invincible spirit and hope.

About the Stencils:

Size: 12mm x 12mm (4" x 4").

Pattern area is 10mm x 10mm. Stencil thickness is 0.2mm.

The stencil is made of a composite fibre that is strong, washable, bendable, & not easy to tear (I tried, it doesn't tear although it is thin and has a 'paper-y fibre' feel).  You can use almost any transfer pen or pencil with these, unlike the thicker acrylic plastic stencils which need a long thin tip to reach the fabric.

Easy to store, space saving, and not breakable.
