You can create fun and decorative rolled flowers using your cutting machine (like a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo) or cutting them by hand.
A Cricut rolled flower template is so easy to use and is one of my favorite craft projects. I use them for all sorts of decorations and as center pieces on beautifully wrapped gifts.
If you don’t have a cutting machine, don’t worry! You can cut out the printable rolled paper flower template by hand using the PDF provided and a pair of sharp pointed craft scissors. Prefer to learn how to make paper flowers with Cricut?

ROSE ROLLED FLOWER SVG
The straight cut svg rolled paper flower template is inspired by a rose rolled flower svg. This is plain and has no shaping for petals. The second rolling flower template has very distinctive petals and a thing base line, so be sure to roll this one carefully. Rolling multiples of both and arranging them together in contrasting colors makes a striking craft arrangement.
CUTTING YOUR ROLLED PAPER FLOWER TEMPLATES
First, make sure your glue gun is heated and ready! Then begin cutting out your Cricut rolled flower template. If you are cutting with your machine, upload the svg into the software and cut your flowers. I use a Cricut Maker (which I absolutely love and highly recommend), here is what it will look like in Cricut Design Space:
If you are cutting by hand, print your flowers onto colored card using the pdf file included. Then get cutting with a nice sharp pair of craft scissors.
ROLLING YOUR PAPER FLOWERS
Once you’ve cut these floral svg templates, you will roll them. This can be a bit tricky if you haven’t done it before.
I found, after a lot of experimenting with tweezers, a quilling tool, an electric quilling tool and rolling by hand, that the non electric quilling tool gave me the best results.
There is no hard and fast rule and with practice, you will find which method suits you best. The most important factor is to maintain the same tension throughout the rolling, this ensures the most even spacing between the petals.
SECURING YOUR ROLLED PAPER FLOWER
At the end of the roll of petals is a small circle of card which acts as the base of the flower. This is what you will glue the rolled petals to in order to finish the flower.
Once you reach the end circle, bend it backwards slightly, apply your glue with the glue gun and then fold in onto the base and hold for a few seconds. You can watch how to do this at the end of the quick video below.
