Use This Free Rolled Paper Flower SVG To Create Beautiful Rolled Flowers
In this easy step by step tutorial, I’m going to show you how to roll paper flowers with these free rolled paper flower SVG files so you can make beautiful and striking Paper Flower decor.
Using your cutting machine, like a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo, you can create fun and decorative rolled flowers. You can also cut these out by hand using a pair of sharp pointed craft scissors.

CUT OUT YOUR FLOWERS
First, make sure your glue gun is heated and ready! Then cut out your flowers. If you are cutting with your machine, load 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 FLOWERS
Once you’ve cut the flowers, you will roll them. Now 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.
