Paper Pansy Template

These paper pansies are super eye-catching and easy to make. They are fun paper flowers that will add a little extra to any craft project.

Pansies are so cute in the real world I can’t believe it has taken me this long to make a paper pansy as part of my crafts collection.

While they are not as fancy looking as some of the more voluminous flowers with layers upon layers of petals. What it lacks in fuss, it makes up for in cuteness.

They are super simple to make as well with minimum curling and assembly required. They are great if you need to add multiple flowers to a bigger craft projects and don’t have time to assemble a flower with a ton of different pieces.

Materials for Paper Pansies

Cardstock – I would still recommend getting medium weight cardstock with colored cores for this project because the stamen piece is relatively intricate to cut and may fray more with textured white core paper. Here are some of my favorite brands:

  • 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.

    Tutorial for Paper Pansy

    Step 1: Cut out the petal layers using the template

    I always like cutting paper flower templates on a fresh light grip blue mat. I find the standard mat a little too sticky for clean up although for this design, there are not a ton of scraps to clean up.

    Step 2: Curl the petals

    I do a gentle with a softer straight edge for these petals. No need to make a super aggressive curl with this flower.

    Step 3: Glue the petal layers together

    I like to glue the stamen pieces on the petals first and then layer on the petals together.

    That’s it’!
