Paper Chrysanthemum Flower Template

Paper Flowers

I designed this chrysanthemum template with the intention of making it on the Cricut.

While it is possible to make this flower by hand, I would highly recommend using a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette.

With a cutting machine, this is super easy to make. The flower looks great as wall art or placed on floral stems in a bouquet.

Materials for Paper Chrysanthemum

Cardstock – Because there are so many intricate petals in this design, I would recommend using a non-textured cardstock with a colored core. The paper weight doesn’t matter as much. Textured cardstock tends to have white cores and doesn’t cut as well for detailed designs. Here are some of my favorite cardstock brands. I used the Metallic Shimmer assortment and Neenah collections for the flowers you see in the photos.

Glue – I like tacky glue but a glue gun works too

Floral Stems – There are many floral stems to choose from on Amazon. I like the 18 gauge ones for this project.

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

    Tips on Making these DIY Paper Chrysanthemum Flowers

    Step 1: First cut all of the petal layers out.

    Step 2: Curl the petals using either a scraper or a credit card. Hold the base of the petal as you are doing this and be gentle as to not tear the petal.

    If a petal does tear off, just let it be. This is a very forgiving design and no one will notice if you are missing a petal.

    Step 3: Glue each layer on top of each other starting with the largest as the base and working upwards.
