Step by step tutorial for paper flowers DIY:

Step 1: Upload the template and cut the templates on your cutting machine.

The cutting lines are neat, and much quicker than hand cut. So it’s really quick and easy to make the whole Gerbera  bouquet for your big wedding day or your room decoration.

Step 2: Use the round stylus to form the flower centers

Please watch the video to have clearer view of how to form them. Then glue it together accordingly.

Step 3: Curve the flower petals

Each layer will have its own curves.

The inner layer (which is a little smaller) will have the strong curves while the outer one will have only light curves.

    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.
