I was inspired by this Scandinavian Floral Vase I have that you can see in my email signature box. I decided to create a set of wall art cut files that work great by themselves or with a paper flower arrangement shadow box.
Most people think the picture of my vase is wall art but its actually the top of a vase I bought from a home decor store in Stockholm.
This inspired me to actually make an art piece. I ended up making 3 pieces in this geometric wall art series. These are all free and available in my resource library.

Recommended Materials for Geometric Wall Art
Cardstock – I used a variety of different cardstock for this project. My favorite is the shimmer metallic one. The glossy one is from the Recollections foiled cardstock collection. My only recommendation is to not used textured cardstock. Textured cardstock is harder to cut intricate designs and has a white core that frays.
- Recollection Assorted Starter Pack – Basic assorted colors, great starter pack, perfect weight for most papercraft projects
- Metallic Shimmer Assorted Set from Amazon – This set is a little lighter in weight but the colors are beautiful in 3D
- 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
- 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.
- Assorted Pink Set from Paper Paper – This is a must-have for paper flower makers. The variety is perfect to create a bouquet.
- Assorted Purple Set from Paper Paper – This is another must-have for paper flower makers. I love the variety of finishes in this pack.
- Metallic Variety Set from Paper Paper – I don’t know any avid paper crafter that doesn’t use Stardream metallics line of shimmer paper. It is the only metallic cardstock line that I know of that has such variety and has colored cores.
Templates – Both the geometric series and the rolled rose are available in my resource library.
A Few Tips on Making Rolled Roses
Start with the outer edge using tweezers or a quilling tool.
Hold the core down into the base circle with glue for about 15 seconds and it will set.
For a more “rounded” flower, I like to pinch the petals as I am rolling.
