The camellia flower is also another great starter paper flower that is super easy to make.
This paper camellia is a basic layered paper flower that is both great for beginner paper flower crafters as well as a more advanced crafter looking to add a piece to a bigger project.
This is a great flower for viewing head-on, as in, it is less compelling on a stem. I like to use it as wall decor, in wreaths, or in arrangements where the stems are not visible.

Let’s get started…
Tutorial for How to Make Paper Camellia
Step 1: Print your free paper flower template
This step is only for if you are cutting these by hand. I’ve created a printable flower template available in multiple formats.
Step 2: Cut the printable flower template
I cut my paper flower templates on the Cricut but it is totally doable by hand.
Step 3: Curl the petals
You can use a scraper, or just do it by hand. I use this scraper I have for my cast iron pan.
The smallest layer is just folded inwards.
Step 4: Assemble the layers
I like to have the curls for the 2 largest layers face down and the rest face up.
I also like to use tape for the 4 largest layers to add more depth. I then use the glue for the topmost layers.
That’s it! Easy Peasy!
