Lace Paper Flowers

Paper Flowers

I’ve been on a lace kick lately and thought it would look nice as petal designs on paper flowers. As always, I’ve included my SVG cut files for this project for free.

A lot of people try to make paper flowers look as close to the real thing as possible. I’m sort of in a different camp. I’ve decided paper flowers are their own art form and my goal is not to make it look like it does in nature.

If I wanted real flowers, I would just buy real flowers.

Maybe I’m just justifying my latest project. ha!

In any case, here’s a few tips on how to make these paper flowers.

Material Recommendations for Lace Paper Flowers

Cardstock – I’ve been making a lot of detailed cut designs lately and there’s a few winners in Cardstock brands.

My favorite is this Neenah Creative Collection. I like it for multiple reasons. One, the core is not white so it looks much better for rolled flowers. For more detailed cuts, they also don’t have a white frayed edge.

I also like it for its texture, or lack there of. The smooth surface grips the light grip mat just better enough to make a clean cut reliably. And because you can you the light grip, it makes peeling off the design much easier. And even more importantly, it makes cleaning the board with scraps that much easier.

I also like this lettered sized sets from Recollections

Glue – I use tacky glue. I had to use a little tape to hold the edges together while it dried though.

Lint Roller – This might be the most important item. You really need it to pick up the scraps. This or masking tape.

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

Template – I’ve included 3 lace paper flower designs for free available in my resource library.

    Tutorial and Tips for making Lace Paper Flowers

    Step 1: Cut the templates

    Step 2: Roll the outer loops and hold them with tape if necessary. Then glue each loop onto the base circle with the largest on the bottom.

    Make sure to offset the petals.

    Step 3: Rolled the center loop loosely and glue to its base. Then assemble the whole thing together.

    If you are looking for a simpler center, just skip the hold rolled center loop.

      Is there a video? I cannot for the life of me figure out why there are 4 pieces (having never made a paper flower before). All the other videos are one piece. Thanks!

      • Hi there, I haven’t gotten around to making a video for this one yet but it is similar to the construction of my magnolia flower:
        I have multiple loops that you layer on top of each other so that you can control the overlap. I hope that helps in the meantime! I hope to get around to making more videos in the new year.
