12 Free Rolled Flower SVG Templates

These free Cricut paper flowers templates are the perfect addition to any DIY gift project or decor piece.

These Cricut rolled flowers are really fun to make and great easy starter projects for any paper flower crafts. If you are new to Cricut paper projects, these are a great start. These rolled paper flowers are really an enlarged quilling project. Quilling is the art of rolling paper strips. Here, instead of straight paper strips, we rolled a spiral of petals connected together. It not only creates really even paper flowers, but they are also super easy to make so it’s great for collage projects where you might need a lot of paper flowers.

I love using rolled paper flowers for wall decorations or even party centerpieces. They look great in a shadow box frame or just by themselves on a blank canvas. I’ve even made miniature rolled paper flowers for quilling projects on greeting cards. The possibilities are endless.

My free flower SVG files are for the Cricut but SVG is a standard file format and can be used with many other cutting machines like the Silhouette.

Rolled Paper Flower Templates

Sharing is caring so I’ve made my templates free for everyone. (update: I have since cleaned up my templates and made them more symmetrical so it doesn’t look exactly like this photo, but better:)

I’ve included 12 rolled flower SVG files in this set. These paper flower templates are free for personal use and limited commercial use. (feel free to sell the flowers, please just don’t redistribute the flower svg)

In my initial set of paper rolled flowers, I used a mix of medium-weight (65lbs) cardstock with colored colors and ones that had a white core. While some of the colors available for cardstock with white cores are really pretty, I recommend using cardstock with colored cores when possible. The nature of this design exposes a lot of the core so when it is while it doesn’t create as clean of a finish as does the colored core cardstock.

Materials for Rolled Flowers – Templates, Cricut, Glue and Cardstock

*this article contains affiliate links for your convenience, full disclosures here

Cardstock – I prefer to use cardstock with colored cores for rolled paper flowers. They are easier to cut without snags and they look better. Here are some of my favorites for making rolled paper flowers:

  • Assorted Starter Pack – Basic assorted colors, great starter pack, perfect weight for most papercraft projects
  • Cricut Joy Insert Card Packs – You don’t have to use these with the Cricut Joy, they are nice material kids for cardmaking.
  • 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.

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

Glue – I use Tacky Glue but a hot glue gun works as well.

Templates – These rolled flower SVG templates along with 300+ other project templates are free and available in my resource library.

In addition to this set of rolled paper flowers, I have many other rolled paper flowers when you’re ready to move on to slightly more complicated (but still pretty easy) paper flower projects. The templates for these rolled paper flowers are also free and you will get access to them when you sign up for the newsletter.

There are so many different projects you can create with a basic rolled flower. These free Cricut paper flower templates are great for any DIY decor or party prep projects you might have. Sometimes I make a set of these paper flower and make them for one project and then when I get tired of that project or used it for a party, I might pluck them off and repurpose them on another project. Recycle reuse crafting style!

Cricut Flower Template Tutorial

Step 1: Cut out the paper flower templates – Cricut cutting machine recommended

I use my Cricut to cut these rolled paper flowers. I’ve cut hundreds if not thousands of paper flowers using my Cricut at this point.

I know the general consensus is to use the Standard Grip mat but I find it really tedious to clean the green mat. Plus, something happened to these recent batches of Standard grip mats, they are super sticky and peel off in chunks.

My preference is actually a fresh Light Grip mat. These designs usually do fine with the blue mats. Using the Light Grip mat makes cleaning a breeze.

If you are going to resize this rolled paper flower to something much smaller (like less than 5inches wide for an unrolled spiral), I would recommend sticking to a Standard grip mat.

Step 2: Rolling the paper flower template

Starting from the outermost edge, roll the petal strip into a tight roll. I like using tweezers mostly because I already have them. Some more serious people using specialized quill tools. I can’t be bothered.

You want to start the roll rather tight, you can always loosen it later if that looks better to you.

If you are using heavier cardstock, you might want to curl the starting end with a scraper or credit care so it bends more easily.

Step 3: Secure the Rolled Flower

After a few turns, secure the center of the flower with a paper clip or bobby pin. This is not totally necessary but I find it is easier than holding the tweezers in place.

I also like keeping the clip in place while the glue is drying, it adds a little more control to the end look of the rolled flower.

Step 4: Complete the rolling

Now roll the whole thing. A quick note on my templates, on some of the templates, the start end of the template does not fit the rest of the outline. I did this purposely because it rolls better. If you don’t like the look of it, simply just cut that part off.

Step 5: Glue and Secure the rolled paper flower

Fold the circle tab underneath the roll and glue in place.

I like using Tacky Glue for rolled flowers because it is inexpensive and non-toxic. However, you do have to hold it in place for a good 10 seconds if not longer. The stiffer your cardstock and the more tightly you’ve rolled it, the longer you’ll have to hold it in place.

If you are impatient and love using hot glue guns, that will go much faster. Just add some glue and hold for 5 seconds and it will set.

In terms of how tight or loose you want the rolled flower, I like it not super tight. I have a different set of rolled paper flowers (Deluxe Set of Rolled Paper Flowers) that I have designed for a tighter roll. I like to set it loose and let it unwind a bit as the glue is setting.

A few additional tips:

I sometimes like to use masking tape to hold everything in place while the glue is drying. Sometimes a hair elastic works too.

Alternatively, you can just use faster drying glue like the hot glue gun.

I’ve also mixed and matched by petals. I cut off part of petal strips from different designs and mix and match them so that the flower has a different center stamen design than the outermost petals. You can also do the same with the same petals but just different colors. I love doing a subtle gradient of darker pink in the core to a lighter pink on the outer petals. You can also combine more contrasting colors and start with something completely different than what you up with. The possibilities are endless!

Interested in all my other projects using rolled paper flowers? I have a few ideas here. The templates for all these projects are also all free in my resource library:

For more visual learners, I’ve created a video tutorial showing you how I roll these paper flowers.

I am a paper flower making enthusiast. I might be making really complex paper flowers but I surprise myself how often I go back to just a basic rolled flower to finish a particular project or complement a specific item in the bouquet. This set of rolled paper flowers not only is essential in my paper flower bouquets but it’s the perfect add on for cardmaking, DIY decorating, entertaining and party planning. You name it, I’ve probably made it. I hope it becomes an essential paper flower in your repertoire too!

    These are not free to use they are free to put to your images but when you want to use them you have to purchase each of them

    1. Hi Brenda, I’m confused by your comment. You don’t need to pay to use them. They are just free in my resource library. You’re more than welcome to sell the finished product as well. I just don’t want anyone to distribute them. I hope that clarifies things!

  2. Cherie

    How do I find your resource library ? I put my email in

  3. Jessica

    I’m looking at your bottom picture with the flowers in a circle, there’s dark blues, plums, pinks, lilacs. Those are the exact colors for my wedding. Can I ask where and what colors you used?

    1. Hi there! The rolled flowers in the newsletter sign up block uses cardstock from 2 sets. The more purple tones and lilac is from a 12inx12in Recollections Paper Pad |Bloc De Papier in Ultra Violet. (The navy is actually just dark purple) The more pink shades are from a letter-size variety pack also from Recollections but I think its called Roses. Hope that helps!

    hi! I just signed up and downloaded this template – thank you so much! Do you have an image to show what each flower template will look like when finished/rolled? I am having trouble figuring out what the finished product will look like just from the svg file! Thank you

        I have tried looking for the password in my email and have not seen it.

    Great ideas for crafting with my group at the library

  15. wow!!! such an amazing piece of art, one can even do it at home.

  16. Joneva

    Thank you so much for the templates. I have a cricut expression 2 and wondering if it’s possible to connect it somehow to cut these?

    1. I don’t think so but I’m not super familiar with the expression. My understanding is it doesn’t use the .svg file format.

  17. Lee

    How do I get 1 individual flower template into Cricut design space? I tried uploading all 12 to then ungrounded but there’s no option to do so…

    1. Hi there, if you don’t see an upgroup option, you likely uploaded the non-SVG file format version of the template. If you upload the SVG format version, you should have an option to ungroup.

  18. Kelly True

    Have you ever cut the cookie sheets from Dollar Tree on your Cricut Maker? If so, please let me know how it worked. I have made really neat sunflowers out of the cookie sheets, but hand cut them. Would be so much easier if my Cricut would cut it.

    1. I have not but it sounds interesting. I have a dollar tree around me so won’t be able to get the material but I’ve tried cut thicker stuff with the Cricut and find the rotary blade surprisingly useful in those scenarios.

  19. Emily

    When I download these all I get n the folder is a PDF document and an edge html document, how do I upload into design space?

    1. Hi there, that edge html document is probably the .svg format version of the template. You likely have computer set up so the default program used to view an SVG file is your browser. Try uploading the edge html document to design space.
