Two-Toned Paper Flowers

These two toned flowers are the perfect Cricut project. They suit beginners and provide enough variation for the advanced crafter.

I wanted to make a little variation on the classic rolled paper flower so I designed a new template to accommodate different colors.

This one was super fun to play with because the possibilities are endless for what color combinations you might pair together.

I made 3 different petal shape templates. It took a little while to figure out exactly how long each piece of the rolled strip had to be to optimize the end look of the flower.

This two-tone paper flower template is free and available in my resource library.

Materials for Two-Toned Rolled Flower

Glue – I use Tacky Glue because it is non-toxic but a glue gun works too.

Cardstock – You will need 2 colors. My favorite is this Neenah Collections brand, it’s super affordable, comes in an assortment of colors, has a colored core so you can’t see fraying. Here are some of my other favorites for paper flower:

  • 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.

Clear Tape – Any brand will do

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