Learn how to make rolled paper flowers and use them to decorate a cute wooden sign.
Rolled paper flowers are really fun to make and if you’ve ever tried making giant paper flowers where each individual petal is cut out separately, you’re in for a treat– this type of flower goes together much more quickly!
To make a rolled paper flower, you will need:
- Rolled Paper Flower Templates (I used this one, this one and this one)
- Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Electronic Cutting Machine
- Smooth Cardstock
- Hot Glue Gun + Gluesticks
Purchase a few different rolled paper flower templates from the Silhouette Design Store. Open the templates in Silhouette Studio. Adjust the size. For this project, I made all different sizes of flowers, with 3-4 flowers per 8.5×11″ sheet of cardstock. Cut.
If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine, you can still make this craft. It’ll just take longer. You’ll have to try cutting a shape similiar to those pictured by hand.
Shape the petals by rounding them over a pencil.
Starting at the outside end, roll the flower up. Release the tension until the flower matches the size of the center circle. This is the base you’ll glue the rolled up section to. Cover the circle with hot glue, then press the rolled flower edges into the glue until secure.
Now it’s time to make something out of all of these pretty flowers you’ve created!
I picked up a blank wooden sign at the craft store and arranged my rolled paper flowers into the shape of a heart, then used hot glue to secure them in place. Isn’t it fun?
It would also be darling to make the first letter of someone’s name or to make the flowers into an animal. The possibilities are endless with this part… let your creativity go wild!
This isn’t the first time I’ve decorated a sign with rolled paper flowers. I made a patriotic themed decoration last year and filled a USA mason jar with red, white and blue flowers. Taking a seasonal twist with this craft would be really easy and super cute.
So now that you know how to make rolled paper flowers, what kind of craft are you going to make with them?
