Paper Sunflower Template – Free SVG and Tutorial

Leave a comment
Paper Flowers

This is a tutorial for a relatively easy rolled paper sunflower tutorial with free SVG templates.

I was gifted a nice bouquet of flowers the other day and it included a few sunflowers. The sunflower outlasted all the other flowers in the bouquet.

It reminded me I wanted to add to my suite of paper flower templates one for the sunflower but I’ve been putting it off because I didn’t want to glue each petal. I also wanted an easy way to make the core without it looking tacky.

Well, problem solved! I used my base rolled core and then re-purposed my lint roller to pick up all the scraps leftover from cutting the center piece.

Aren’t they cute?!

Recommended Materials for Paper Sunflower

Cardstock– You will need at least 2 colors for this sunflower. While you might be able to get away with a white core cardstock for the petals, I would recommend a colored core cardstock for the center piece because it will fray a little and white frayed pieces don’t look good.

My favorite is this Neehah Collections brand, it’s super affordable, comes in an assortment of colors, has a colored core so you can’t see fraying.

Glue – If you are going to make the bouquet stemmed version of this, you will need a glue gun. If not, then Tacky Glue works.

Floral Stem – Only if you are going to make the bouquet version.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut

Template – I’ve included my flower SVG files for free in my resource library. I also included a little leaf base for the bouquet version.

    Tutorial for Paper Sunflower

    Step 1: Cut all the template pieces. Don’t forget to use some masking tape or lint roller to pick up all the small pieces from the mat.

    I like to use either a really old green mat or the fresh blue mat.

    Step 2: Roll the petals and glue in place. Sometimes I cheat and use tape to hold it in place while its drying.

    Step 3: Curl the petals. I have this super professional tool that I use to curl things. (haha, jk, its the scraper for my cast iron skillet)

    Step 4: Assemble the flower by gluing each layer on top of each other.

    Step 5: For the bouquet, use tape to hold the base leaf loop at the tip of the stem

    Step 6: Glue the base leaf to the stem from the inside. I used tacky glue here which didn’t work well. The glue gun is best for this part.

    Step 7: Place some glue at the base of the flower and set it on top of the leaves
