I’ve done a number of rose-themed crafts over the years. Here are all of my free Rose SVG template projects in one place.
I’ve done so many projects over the years involving roses I’ve lost count. I actually have way more than what’s highlighted here in my free resource library but these are my favorites:
This paper flower is easier to make than it looks. It’s actually just a bunch of layered petals.
This is also a layered paper rose. It takes a little more effort because the outer most petals are separated so you have more control over the final layering.
This is one of my earliest projects. This is the easiest rose to make with just a single petal strip that you rolled up.
This paper Luminaries are also super easy to make and look great all year round.

The rose is my favorite flower. And I know now why. I think it has mainly to do with the color, the dark red blood red color, and the fragrance it gives. Walking through garden, I was always attracted to roses. It would instantly catch my eyes, blooming among pink ponies, purple bluebells, white jasmines, and red tulips. The red color is surely a treat for the eyes. Roses symbolize love. No perfume in this world can match the fragrance of roses. Just like in life, roses too symbolize hardships. There are thorns attached to the stem and sometimes when you pluck it you may get a little cut on your finger. This symbolizes that life is like that too. It is bittersweet. Not a bed of roses as some people suggest. And this is okay because this is how life is supposed to be. so yes, I love roses not merely because of the red bold color or the fragrance or the prettiness they give off. I love them because of the deep meaning they have given me in life. Everyone loves roses. It goes beyond the boundaries of culture or religion. People bring a bouquet of roses for an ill person as a well-wishing gesture. lovers give it to each other as a symbol of love, poets have written sonnets on it. Gardeners adore them just like their own child. Rose truly is a universal symbol of love, happiness, and togetherness.
How to turn any image into an SVG template?
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
These dragonfly SVG files for Cricut are perfect to make any garden craft or insect-themed card. I like using them to make simple hole punch cards. These are versatile and easy to customize for any occasion. Of course, garden Cricut cards are great for backyard parties as well.
