DIY Paper Lily Template and Tips

I made a calla lily a while back which was a bit underwhelming because it only required 1 piece. I thought I would challenge myself a little more with a full-on lily design this time around.

I’m a huge fan of my semi-rolled paper flower technique. Not only is it faster to make flowers this way, I think it makes it more symmetrical.

Recommended Materials for Paper Lilies

Cardstock – I like to use medium weight cardstock with a colored core. It flexes easily and doesn’t have white frayed edges.

  • 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.

Glue – I use Tacky Glue.

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

Template – I’ve included my Paper Lily templates in my resource library.

    Step 3: Glue the smaller loop on top of the bigger loop. Then glue the rolled up stamen piece to the center.

    Step 4: I’ve included a base leaf loop that I use for all my bouquet flowers. This step is optional.
