I love paper flowers. My very first designs for the Cricut were paper flowers. I’ve designed many more paper flowers since then because I just love how we can turn regular cardstock into these beautiful works of art. I believe I’ve designed over 25 paper flowers at this point, in fact! But did you know there are 10 paper flower designs right in Cricut Access that you can use any time you want? They are part of the Flower Shoppe cartridge and included in Cricut Access.
To make paper flowers, you just need some cardstock (60 lb. to 80 lb.), a way to roll your flowers, and something to keep them together. I’m going to show you the kind of paper that works best for paper flowers because there are some things to watch out for. I’m also going to show you three different tools you can use to make your flowers and how well they work.
HOW TO MAKE CRICUT PAPER FLOWERS
STEP 1: FIND THE PAPER FLOWERS IN CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
There are THREE ways to find Cricut’s paper flowers:
1. Just go to https://jennifermaker.com/cricutflowers (or https://design.cricut.com/#/design/130709934) and all the flowers will come up for you in Cricut Design Space! Super easy!
2. Go to Cricut Design Space, click on Images and search on each of these 10 ID numbers: #M3F171 #M3D7D0 #M3D7E1 #M45BF3 #M4733C #M44A7D #M4431D #M434FB #M451E6
3. Go to Cricut Design Space, click on Images, click on Cartridges, search on Flower, click on the Flower Shoppe cartridge, and select each of the 10 flowers.
Once you’ve found the Cricut paper flowers, you’ll want to size them for your project. I’m making these flowers for my Vase of Paper Flowers Canvas so I’m opting for 8″ wide, but you may have different needs. To resize a whole bunch of flowers, select them all, click Align, select Center, then type in the size you’d like them all to be.
STEP 2: CUT OUT YOUR CRICUT PAPER FLOWERS USING THE BEST PAPER
STEP 3: ASSEMBLE YOUR PAPER FLOWERS USING THE BEST TOOL
There are at least three tools you can use to roll up your paper flowers. The first is a Cricut quilling tool, which you can get as part of their paper crafting set. The second is a DIY quilling tool, which I have a tutorial on and is simple to make. The third is a pair of tweezers, and reverse-action tweezers work best. I personally prefer to use either the Cricut quilling tools or my homemade quilling tool, depending on the project.
STEP 4: GLUE YOUR CRICUT PAPER FLOWERS USING THE BEST GLUE
