Paper flowers are so versatile, especially if you’re like me and lacking a green thumb. As shown here, I love to create small wall hangers with my flowers, but these can go in or on anything you can think of:

  • Add them to a wreath
  • Affix them to a seasonal greeting card
  • Create table centerpieces
  • Add them to a gift bag or box
  • They make a great addition to themed garland
  • Stem them for a bouquet
The options are endless! Today I would like to give you free flower templates for two of my most popular designs, so that you can try these yourself. Assembling any of my flowers is really easy. Follow along with my step-by-step video tutorials located here:

Key steps are curling the flower petals with the skewer sticks.

And giving each layer added dimension using the shaping mat and roundball shaping tools.

Each layer is assembled from largest to smallest to create the finished flower.

I prefer to use 65#, solid core, solid color card stock but you certainly don’t have to! Textured card stock can give a whole new layer of dimension in your paper flowers.

​ I added a bit of Distress Ink to the large yellow rolled flowers in the color Carved Pumpkin. Although subtle, I love adding distress ink to any flower styles.

Each of my original flower templates follow a similar shaping style and assembly. Once you have the technique, you can make any Rosy Bee flowers.

Happy crafting, friends!
