Here are a few tips to get you started with making paper flowers:
- Choose the right materials. The type of paper you use will affect the look and durability of your flowers. For example, cardstock paper is a good choice for making large, sturdy flowers, while tissue paper is a good choice for making delicate flowers. In each paper flower tutorial, we have suggested the best material for that flower’s shape and size. And we will recommend the paperweight in case you want to enlarge the flower size.
- Use a template. If you are new to making paper flowers, it can be helpful to use a template. This will help you to ensure that your flowers are symmetrical and evenly shaped. DreamyPosy has prepared so many templates and step-by-step tutorials to make paper flowers here.
- Be patient. Making paper flowers can take some time and practice. Don’t get discouraged if your first few flowers don’t turn out perfect. Just keep practicing and you will eventually get the hang of it.

Step-by-step tutorial for paper flowers DIY with pictures
Step 1: Upload this gerbera daisy SVG file and cut the templates on your cutting machine.
Gerbera flower has a lot of petals and with the help of Cricut, the cutting lines are neat, and much quicker than hand cutting. Gerbera flowers have many petals, and cutting them by hand can be time-consuming and messy. However, using a Cricut machine makes the process much easier and faster. With the help of a Cricut, you can quickly and easily create a beautiful bouquet of gerbera flowers for your wedding day or any other occasion.
To make a paper gerbera daisy, you will need the following materials:
- 4 center flower layers
- 1 small petal layer
- 3 bigger petal layers
- 1 sepal layer
- Some leaves
All of these items are included in DreamyPosy’s free Gerbera daisy templates (see picture).
Step 2: Use the round stylus to form the flower centers
Use the ball stylus and a soft foam mat to form the 4 center flower layers before gluing them together like in the picture.
Please watch the video to have a clearer view of how to form them. Then glue it together accordingly.
Add a lime green tiny circle to the center of those layers.
Step 3: Curve the flower petals
Each layer will have its own curves.
The inner layer (which is a little smaller) will have strong curves while the outer one will have only light curves.
Step 4: Glue the flower layers together.
Use the hot glue gun to attach them together.
Try to rotate each layer to be interleaved the other layer’s space.
Step 5: Make the stem
Attach the wire head (which is inserted into the PVC transparent tube) to the bottom of the flower.
Then cover it with the sepal.
Wrap the stem with floral tape.
Step 6: Make the leaves
Attach the wire to the leaf with white glue and cover it with a small piece of paper.
Use your nail to create the vein of the wire on both sides.
Step 7: Make the buds
Use the ball stylus to curve the bud petals. and sepal.
Attach the stem to make the flower bud.
That’s all, this should be the easy flower that you surely can make it.

I have a question. When you put the large flower together do you cut 2 sets of large petals or three? The svg only has two but the photo tutorial shows three. Thanks.
Dear Joy, the large flower has 3 layers of petals, and the top layer will be the smaller one, the other 2 layers will have same size. Hope this help.
Thank yo for this great template and tutorial. I’m glad I found you. Anxious to see more!
