Paper Flowers Craft with Cricut
Hey crafty friends! Today I’m gonna show you how to make a paper flower wall Display with your Cricut. Plus I have three free paper flower SVG files for you so you can make your very own.
The paper flower SVG file also includes a ‘greenery’ SVG file so you can add leaves to your wall display.
You wanna know the best thing about paper flowers? I can’t kill them! They last forever and bring such a nice pop of color to a room.
The display I made today is for my teen daughters room. She’s all about the teal right now.
So I made light teal flowers, dark teal flowers and cream colored flowers for my neutral. I cut the ‘greenery’ in gold card stock since green doesn’t exactly go with teal.
So don’t be afraid to pick non-traditional colors for your paper flower display.
Let’s get started.
-Oh one more thing, scroll all the way to the end to enter the Think Spring Giveaway for your chance to win a NEW Cricut Maker!
Paper Flower Supplies Needed
- Cardstock -Three colors for the paper flowers and a color for the leaves
- Tacky Glue or Hot Glue Gun
- Poster Tack and or Thumb Tacks
- Paper Flower SVG -I’m including three free paper flower SVGs with this tutorial + the greenery
- A way to cut the Paper Flowers – I use a Cricut
I used this variety pack of teal cardstock for my teal flowers. For this paper flower display, I used the lightest color and the darkest color in that pack.
The cream-colored cardstock I already had on hand. Both are 65 lb cardstock which is what I recommend for making paper flowers.
You can use as many colors as you want for your display. But generally three colors are going to look best.
You’re also going to need some tacky glue or a hot glue gun to glue the flower petals together.
And of course you’ll need a cutting machine like the Cricut and a free paper flower SVG for you to cut. I am offering three paper flower SVG files for you to use. You can find them in my free resource library I make available to subscribers of my weekly newsletter. More details at the bottom of the post.
Video – Make a Paper Flower Wall Backdrop
Take a look at the video on how to create this stunning paper flower wall backdrop. Written instructions are down below.
How To Size the Paper Flowers
Paper flower displays look best when they have a variety of flowers and sizes. When you upload the Paper Flower SVG files into design space the size is set to a medium sized flower.
So the easiest way to make different sizes is to make two duplicates of flower you’ve uploaded. Make one of the duplicates smaller than the original and then change the color. Make the other duplicate larger than the original and then change its color.
Now you have three different sized paper flowers that you can cut in three colors.
If you do this for each of the three paper flower SVGs you’ll have nine flowers for your display in various sizes.
Do the same for the greenery. There are two different leaf branches in the SVG file. I duplicated the file twice and made one duplicate larger and the second one smaller.
Assembling the Paper Flowers
All three of the paper flower designs are put together the same way. Start with separating your flowers petals by size.
You will also have a circle that is cut out, this is the base for your flower petals. You can choose to curl your flower petals or leave them uncurled.
Here is a picture of the same flower done each way.
Some flowers I prefer un-curled petals, but I mix it up and do some of each when I’m making a paper flower display.
If you want to curl your petals take a stack of the petals and roll them around a pencil. This will give each petal a nice curl.
Next we are going to glue the petals. To do that put tacky glue or hot glue along one side of the upside down ‘V’. Then overlap the other side of the ‘V’ to glue the ‘V’ closed.
Hold the two sides together until the glue sticks. It shouldn’t take long if you are using tacky glue or hot glue.
Repeat this process for every petal. After you get all of the petals glued we can glue them to our circle base and make the paper flower.
Flip one of the largest petals over and place a line of glue along the bottom. Then glue it to the outer part of the circle base.
Glue all of your largest petals around the outside of the circle. Two of the paper flower SVGs have four large petals that go along the outside and one of the paper flower SVG files will have five petals.
After the outer layer of petals are glued onto the base we can add the next size smaller petals.
Glue the next ring of petals evenly around the inside of the outer petals. Start the first one in between two of the outer petals.
The last ring will have three petals that you’ll glue evenly inside of the second ring.
And finally, you’ll be ready for the center of the flower. I just use my fingers to curl up and fold the center. Then place a small dot of glue on the back and place it in the center of the flower.
So that’s how you assemble the paper flowers. Do this for every flower you cut out for your paper flower display.
I made nine flowers for my display and it took me an hour or two to make them all. I’m not a super great judge of time as my kids interrupt me a lot! #momlife
How to Make a Paper Flower Backdrop
Now that all of the paper flowers are assembled it’s time to put it together for our wall backdrop. I like to start on the table and arrange the flowers until I’m happy with the look.
Then snap a picture so you can recreate your paper flower backdrop on the wall.
So to make the backdrop start with the largest flower you have and place it in the center. Then take the two next biggest flowers that are a different color and place them on one side of the large flower.
You can play around with the positioning, try exactly centered or slightly offset. I think offset looked the best for these flowers so that’s what I went with.
Then take the next two largest flowers and place them next to the first set of flowers. Again you can play with the angle here and see what looks best.
Next we are going to take the four remaining smallest flowers and fill in the gaps with those. I usually place these flowers on the top or bottom of the largest flower or off to the side and in between the medium flowers.
Finally we can add in the greenery branches to finish the paper flower wall display. I just tuck a branch behind a flower and try to spread them out evenly around the display.
When you’re happy with how it looks, snap a picture and we can start hanging the paper flowers on the wall.
How to Attach Paper Flowers to a Wall
So now we get to hang our paper flower backdrop on the wall. For the greenery, you’ll definitely want to use poster tack
Poster tack will also work for some small flowers, but the larger paper flowers will most likely fall down. They are just to heavy for the poster tack to hold up.
So for the paper flowers, I use thumbtacks. This is the main reason why I like to arrange my backdrop on the table first. Though thumbtacks leave just a teeny tiny hole, if you get a bunch of those holes as you arrange flowers it will look bad!
The great thing about using thumb tacks is you can place them in the center of the flower and it still looks natural. But if you don’t want it in the center they are small enough you could hide the thumbtack behind one of the petals.
And of course the holes they leave behind are so small they’re barely noticeable. Often times painting over it is all you need to cover the holes back up.
Again we want to start with the largest flower and center it where you want your flower backdrop to be. Then refer to your photo to hang up the rest of your paper flowers followed by the greenery.
Here is the finished result in my teens room. The paper flower wall backdrop is right above her vanity and really looks fabulous.
This picture doesn’t do it much justice because she’s a teen and her room is a DISASTER. As much as I would love to show the vanity in the pic also, well then you’d be able to see the disaster lol.

How many sheets of paper are need for this project? I noticed today at Hobby Lobby their paper was 50% off! I had purchased about 6 sheets each of several colors, cause I couldn’t decide haha!
I’m going to make these in school colors for graduation party decorations!
Your flowers are gorgeous. I would make mine in teal and pink with cream. I love your gold leaves. I would love this arrangement in my crafting room hanging on an open wall space I have above my sewing machine. I appreciate you sharing arranging tips, that is where I have the hardest part. Thank you for sharing your cut files and assembly video.

Thank you for all the great ideas you give us. I would make flowers for my entry wall in the living room in neutral creamy colors. I would also make some for future Grandbabys nursery in either soft pink & cream or soft blue & cream.💙💖

I love, love, love the colors you chose. I’m in love with turquoise, and this is going in my craft room above my “create” vinyl wall decal. Thank you so much for sharing your tips and tricks from start to finish.
These would look so cute in my daughters room! I love pinks and corals
I’m very indecisive about colors but I’m thinking something bright and cheery for spring. I think pink, purple and some cream. I might hang it in my bathroom to give the dull gray some pop of color. Thanks for the beautiful idea.
Cathy McKenna says
Beautiful work….in love with the color combination! I hadn’t thought of using Poster Tack to display flowers like this! Thank you for sharing

For a backdrop in my house most likely shades of red and above the couch in my family room. Excited to give it a try.
Kayla Sions says
I recently started with small paper flowrers and really enjoyed making them! We just moved into a new home and my daughter wants to re do her room. Oddly enough, she wants teal as her main color wih a unicorn theme. These flowers would look beautiful in her room. Once we finish getting unpacked and settled, I plan on working on these flowers for her room!
Grace Krenrich says

Thank you for sharing! I cannot wait to make my own!
Michelle Kimmell says
My granddaughter saw the flowers and wants to make some for her bedroom wall. She hasn’t narrowed down the colors yet, she has 2 shades of blue, 3 shades of green, and 2 shades of pink, so far! I’m a teacher, so I have tons of colors of cardstock and regular weight paper for her to choose. Should I use cardstock or regular weight paper? She wants to start next weekend!
Cardstock will hold up longer, but regular weight paper would work too!
I like your colors, but maybe use a light grey instead of cream. I’d use it in my bedroom. Can’t wait to try this.
That sounds good! Her walls are light grey so we went with cream.
Jo Ann Lloyd says
Thanks for the great tutorial! I want to different shades of purple to make these for a small wall in my bathroom. I think I’ll going to try make a bouquet as well to put in mason jars.
That’s a great idea! Purple is my favorite color.
Paula Hogue says

Shawn Melady Suda says
These are so beautiful. I was thinking of making these into a wreath instead and hang in the entry way inside. Maybe some beige’s, browns, yellow and cream. Good Job!
I didn’t have the courage to do these flowers but with your tutorial I’ll definitely give it a try, I have Birthday invitation coming up, I’d like to make the small flowers a part of the gift wrapping decoration.

I really like the design of these flowers. I am thinking about pale pinks and grays for my wall design.
How many pieces of cardstock did you use to make the larger flowers and how many inches across would you guess the largest one was?
The largest flower was 4 pieces of cardstock and it’s probably 10-12″ wide.
Charlynn Herman says

So beautiful! If I can find a Cherry Blossom one, I want one behind my couch-in reds and pinks.
I am just dusting off my old Cricut and l am excited to try some new ideas.
Sandy Davis says
I am definitely going to try this for some cards.
Wow….I luv them !
Denita Canipe says
I love anything I can use Teal in. I’m an Ovarian Cancer survivor and this helps give me some ideas how to incorporate my favorite colors. Main place they’ll be used…my office :@} Thank you for the wonderful idea
I would use pink and lavender colours for my flowers and put them on my wall.
Love this! I would love to win the machine so I can make them! I’ve been drooling over the maker since I came out 🤞🏼💝
Kasandra Griffith says
I absolutely love all of your creative ideas! You a very detailed when showing step by step and I appreciate that more than you know. I attempted flowers last night following a Cricut how to. Some worked, some failed. However you details on the flower Instructions made it fail proof for me!! Keep the emails and blogs coming! Thank you!
Sammie VanDyne says
I need one of these on my craft room wall. I live at the beach so I think I will make it in aqua, coral and lime green! Super cute. I love the curled petals!

Love this idea!
I would use yellow, pink and white, to decorate our entrance wall! Thank you!
Michelle Dworaczyk says
I would love to do it in my daughters room. I would do liter pink, blue, green and yellow. Love your work!!!
Super cute. Not something I would actually put on a wall. I would “kill it” the first time I dusted it….but I’m super glad you so generously share your svg files and your time with others.
Just lovely, thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to try!
Love this! I’ve always wanted to make but was t sure how to do it. Thanks for taking time to show us how to do everything!!
Cindy Evans says
So glad I found your helpful site! I plan on using this idea on a large wall of family pictures but not sure on the colors yet.
Beverly Stewart says
I would use the same colors you used and would place it in our new church’s ladies room. It’s still bare at the moment and could use some decoration.
Michele Orrison says
Woohoo would be awesome to win another Cricut maker. Thank you for all you do. Sometimes with my business I just don’t feel I have all the time needed to do more cricut work. But I do love it!
Courtney Keeler says
These are great for shower
Katrina Lovelock says
My Granddaughter would love this in her bedroom, she loves anything girly, pretty and princessey lol. Her favourite colours are different shades of pink with anything glittery so i would do the leaves in silver glitter with pink and white flowers.
Love the flowers and all your designs – thank you!
I currently have SNC650x and am seriously looking into adding a cricut to my room and I think I can get it all done then LOL.
Enrica Johnson says
God blessed you with such talent! Thanks for sharing it with the world!
I love the colors you’re using, they’d look great in a room in my house
carla nieuwsma says
Looks very fun!!!
Great tutorial. I’d like to add these to my craft room.
I love those flowers! I’m definitely going to make those and put them in the extra bathroom that I call wasted space since nobody uses it. Our kids are grown up so there isn’t any moisture in there at all. If I don’t put it in there I’ll put them in our bedroom above our bed. My color will be blue and cream. Thank you for this and I love your blog and all of your helpful information.
Kathy McIlrath says
Blues and yellow centers and hang above the window in my craft room. They are so pretty.
I have been looking into making paper flowers as decor and for present/gift toppers, but haven’t decided what flowers I want or the colors. I was thinking purples, blues & pinks mainly, but maybe some yellows and greens? I don’t know. I haven’t really thought too much about it.
I want to do a flower backdrop for my toddlers room. Light pink and metallic.
Susan Douville says
Love the flowers, uncurled are nice. Will try to incorporate a flower or two on the cards I’m making
Judy Kovalcik says
Love these, now to find the time to make them!

I want to make a flower wal for my toddler daughter’s room. Soft pink and something metallic. Thank you for the inspiration.
Love this site! So much to learn! Thank you!
Kimberly Spencer says
The color scheme is very nice. I would use red white and a smoke grey.
Marla Beach says
Where to put these… I’m thinking maybe I need to make some extras and go along the cabinets in the kitchen or maybe a swag over the front door. Decisions decisions
This are super pretty! I think they would go great on a photo wall with colors to match a party’s theme.
Laurie Browinski says
I would love to create a garden of flowers in bright colors and create it on a wall in a good friend’s preschool for some very special kids
amy bast says
Love how the flowers turned out!

Tiffany Castiglione says
I love this tutorial!! I’ve wanted to learn how to make these big flower displays for a while and can’t wait to try it out!

I will be using earthy colors and putting it in the living room to soften my Travel Decor look. Probably muted yellow or cream with light green or faded red.

I would love to make one for my office with shades of purple and lavender.
Sharon Blazer says
I have adored these flowers when I saw everyone making them. I have been very hesitant to try and make them. That you for this video, now I think I can attempt them. I love the colors that you used they would look great in my little craft area in the basement to give it some pizzaz. Thank you!
Shawna Mixon says
I think I would put these in my dining room. Would love to do so now, but my house is in chaos as we are getting it prepped to sell. The colors I would choose off my current color pallet would be shades of blue and grey. Once upon a time it would have been in shades of teal and grey. Thank you for the opportunities. 🙂

I love the paper flowers . I would like some above my bed. The colors I’d go with are cream, black , gold and a lite green. Thanks for the info for the flowers .
June Font says
I would love to use the paper flowers in my craft room and even for a Photo Booth backdrop.
Love,love,love these flowers. I’m obsessed with making wall flowers. I always cut the petals by hand, but your svg files will save my fingers and hand. Thank you!
I’ve made flowers for my friends daughter’s room in purple, violet and shimmer white. I’ve also made a set for my daughter’s communion reception in light pink, cream and gold.
Thanks again for sharing!
I,d make flowers with gingham papers and decorate my doorway arch…
I would love to put some flowers along my daughters wall in her bedroom! She LOVES flowers! She also loves unicorns, so the colors would be pink, turquoise, and pink!
Sandra Sadler says
I am really enjoying your blog and your creative designs. I am just starting out learning about Cricut and would love to have one to use with my Calligraphy pieces.. You are so inspiring!

Elaine Curtis says
Your flowers are beautiful. Thank you for the instructions. I’ve seen other people post about making these but the lack of instructions makes me fearful to try them. Thank you!
Beverly De Nard says
My daughter would love this for her room. Teams and navy would match her room. But she would probably want red and black.
Brenda Greco-Smith says
Love the colors! Thanks for making the tutorial.
Bethany Leatherwood says
I love the colors you chose! I’ve been intimidated to make flowers but you’ve made it look so easy! I think I’m going to make a backdrop behind my desk at work. It will dress up the beige cinder block wall. 😉

I would want to put this in my craft room. I would honestly probably use the same colors…. blues are my favorite. Thanks for all you do to help us. 🙂

LIZA MARMO says
I would love to create a flower back drop for my sunroom using summer colors orange, green , red, yellow.
I’m working on doing a 18 flower wall using these 3 flowers and 2 others in my 19 month old daughters bedroom. We’re finally moving in our brand new house this weekend after years of trying to buy and finally all 3 of my kids will have their own room. But of course I’ve got to jazz up my only baby girls room and I’ve been anxiously waiting to do these till closer to moving. I can’t wait to get them put up!!! EEEK!!! I’m using purple, teal, pink and 2 small Coral colored ones! That’s what colors I’ve done in her room too so had to do some of all lol. Thanks so much for sharing this and giving me the chance to win. I’ll never be able to afford a maker after buying our house so it’d be so amazing! My friends would love me getting this, they all get the best gifts at Christmas and birthdays lol.
Love this! We are currently redoing our bedroom decor and I think this would look great in it–blues and pale yellows are the colors. Can’t wait to make it!
Shuketa (uniquelydzigned) says
I have always love the paper flower backdrops. They are the reason I became interested in purchasing a Cricut machine. I could never find a good tutorial on how to make them, thanks to your video I now have a better understanding. Especially as to how to hang them up. I would like to put a backdrop in my office space and in my daughter’s room. Like your daughter her room is always a disaster, but she has nothing on her walls. Her room is silver, gold, black and white and those are the colors I would love to mix and match on her wall. In my office space I would love to do a bunch of bright colors, such as orange, yellow, green, red, pink and a teal color.
Dee Chapman-Lee says
Such beautiful flowers. I would use pink and grey 🙂
Very pretty flowers. Love the colors. Gonna have to try some in beach colors.
We have 4 daughters living at home. I think I will make these flowers in my daughter’s favorite colors to put on a plaque on their bedroom doors. Nt sure they will look with orange and red together (4 year old) but we’ll find out.
William Hilton says
Thanks for the walk through.
Tammy Feil says
I would use sea green, beige, and coral to match my beach themed craft room.
Amazing tutorial! Very easy to follow!!
Hannah Turbeville says
I want to use pink and teal for table decorations at my friend’s bridal shower 🙂
Loved the colours you chose! Great designs!
I’m going to try this in black, white and orange for my son’s school colors at his graduation party. He might not appreciate the flowers, but at this point, it’s all about ME! I think I’m stressing more about this party than he is about graduating and getting it over with! LOL! ;0)
Hi Bonnie, have you seen my graduation centerpieces? They are on the homepage
Lindsey Sears says
I love the versatility of these flowers! You can do so much with them! Thanks for the tips!
Dawn wagner says
Beautiful and so simple to add a touch o f spring to this cold and dreary winter.
Jo Anne says
I am going to make these with different shades of blue and cream to put on 6×6 canvas boards to hang in my hallway.
Love floral everything! This tutorial is great 😊
Bridget Wilkins says
I love all shades of pink , so I would choose those colors for my paper flowers. I would most definitely put the flowers in my craft room. Thank you!

I would love to make paper and fabric flowers. I have two sons about to get married. No dates set yet.

Twila Haifley says
Thank you very much for your instructions. They are very easy to follow. I hope the flowers are that easy to make! I have always wanted to do flowers, but have never had the nerve to try. But I will now. Thank you so much.
I love how this turned out.. so much that I wanted to create it for my bridal shower. I signed up with my email to get the free svg files. Once I did this, it was not available in the free files. Is it possible to still get these svg files?
A bride who has a lot of work to do!
Chris Butler says
Congrats on your wedding! The files are still there, under SVG files —-> Paper flowers.
Maggie Dahl says
Beautiful!!My daughter is a maker, and loves my cricut! This is definitely on our project list after we grab some new cardstock!! Look out wallet, i’m coming for you!
