DIY Paper Camellia (with free flower template)

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!
