Paper Hellebore Tutorial

Paper Flowers

The hellebore is such a cute and easy to make flower that is also super versatile for any paper flower artwork project or bouquet.

This particular paper flower is actually very similar in structure as the paper buttercup and magnolia flower but even easier to make.

It is also called the winter rose and belongs in the same Ranunculaceae family that the buttercup. (Try spelling that one over and over again.)

Hellebore flowers in the real world range from dusty red to almost a black red that reminds me of my favorite Chanel nail polish Vamp that goes back all the way to the 90’s.

I didn’t have either one of these in cardstock so I did the best I could with a maroon.

Materials for Paper Hellebore

Cardstock – I would recommend medium weight cardstock with colored cores. It is an intricate cut and I find the textured cardstock sometimes doesn’t hold up. Here are some of my favorite brands:

Glue – Either a polymer based glue or a hot glue gun works.

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

Templates – I’ve included the templates for this paper hellebore in both SVG and PDF formats for free in my resource library.

    How to assemble the paper hellebore

    Step 1: Cut out the templates

    I like to use light grip blue mat for the petals and a standard grip mat for the center pieces that are a little more intricate. You can get away with a light grip mat for the center pieces if it is fresh and your blade is fresh but I’ve snagged the paper way too many times to go that route.

    Step 2: Curl and loop the petals

    I like to curl both set inwards for this flower. I use the softer side of my scraper to create a softer curl.

    Glue the end tabs of the petal strip together to create a loop.

    Step 3: Glue the base petal layers together

    Be sure to offset the petals

    Step 4: Glue the center pieces together

    I like to just stack them on top of each over.

    Step 5: Glue the center stack with the base petals

    I like to apply a ring of glue around the center of the petals and then sort of push the center stack downwards. It creates a nice curvature to the whole thing.
