Bouquet of Paper Flowers – 7 Free Templates

I wanted to design a paper flower that could go in a bouquet for a wedding or just as a centerpiece.

The problem with most paper flower templates for bouquets is it takes FOREVER to make. Because you see the base of the flower in a bouquet, you can’t use the rolled flower template because it doesn’t sit well on a stem.

I really don’t enjoy gluing each petal on individually for each flower not to mention making an entire bouquet of them.

I wanted to make a template for my Cricut that used the technique of the rolled flower but adjusted for a stem.

And that’s exactly what I did here. Each flower takes about a minute to assemble.

Floral wire – I order mine from Amazon, you can get the same package here

Cardstock – I like using shimmer cardstock for paper flowers because it is so pretty when it catches the light. I like this variety metallic pack from Amazon. Note, if you want to make the base leaves, the green colored cardstock does not come with this variety pack. Here are some of my other favorite brands:

  • Recollection Assorted Starter Pack – Basic assorted colors, great starter pack, perfect weight for most papercraft projects
  • Cardstock Warehouse Brand on Amazon – I love the quality of all the matte-colored cardstock with Cardstock Warehouse. It is my go-to brand for individual matte colors that I might need
  • Poptone Assorted Variety Pack – This is the perfect peppy assortment of colors of heavy cardstock. It’s a heavy cardstock assortment with colors I actually use frequently for cardmaking.
  • Seasonal Assorted Variety Pack – This is a slight variation on the Poptone assortment and has a quite few neutrals that complement almost any accent color.
  • Stardream Metallics Line – For paper crafts, the Stardream line is the go-to for a metallic shimmer finish. It is the perfect sheen to make any project pop. The core is also colored is which hard to find for metallic paper.

Glue – I use Tacky Glue but a faster drying glue or a glue gun would probably work better.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

Templates – I made 6 different templates for this bouquet. You can mix and match as you please. I also included a leaves base template.

    Instructions for the Paper Flower Bouquet

    Step 1: Gather your materials and cut each piece

    Step 2: Roll each petal round and glue to keep in place. I was using Tacky glue and didn’t want to hold it in place so I just taped it for a while as the glue set.

    Step 3: String each rolled layer onto the wire with the smallest round layered on top. I used pointed tweezers to enlarge the hole at the base but a paper clip works too.

    I curled my petals before assembly but that is really up to you.

      How big are these supposed to be? I used the SVG on my silhouette and they came out huge! Did I do something wrong? Please help! Thanks.

      1. I made mine around 3 inches wide/tall. I actually don’t have a silhouette so I have not tried to use that interface. I have seen some SVGs made on the silhouette design studio but for some reason, their software scales up the files compared to every other vector editing software by an order of magnitude. I would just scale everything down by like 10x and see how that goes.
