Adding to my series on bouquet paper flower templates, I designed a pattern for tulips today.
It was actually quite simple, the assembly of the flower was much more complicated.
Its not my favorite flower I’ve designed but its not bad. I think it looks better in a bunch rather than by itself.

Recommended Materials for Paper Tulip
Cardstock – I like to use medium weight cardstock with a colored core. It flexes easily and doesn’t have white frayed edges.
Best deals on recommended cardstock:
- Recollections 65lb Cardstock from Michaels
- Metallic Shimmer Assorted Set from Amazon
- Neenah Collections Assorted Set from Amazon
Glue – I use Tacky Glue but I think in retrospect a glue gun would have been better.
Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut
Template – I’ve included mine in my resource library.

Tips for Making Paper Tulips
Step 1: Cut all the pieces
Step 2: Curl the petals. I like to do one big curl inwards and then curl just the tip outwards.
Step 3: Cup the petals together and glue where the petals meet from the inside.
Step 4: Roll the stamen piece and glue to the base.
