If, like me, you are absolutely obsessed with making Paper Flowers, I’ve created this flower tutorials directory for easy reference!
I’ve scoured the internet, my own site and Free Craft Magazines and today I’m bringing you 25 stunning paper flower tutorials. There are a few crafters in this list who should definitely start a side hustle selling their paper flower decor to wedding venues and stores!
The Paper Flower Tutorials Directory:
How To Make A Tissue Paper Peony
This amazing Paper Peony was created by DreamyPosy for Heart Handmade UK. The best part about this paper peony tutorial is the fact that it’s made out of printer paper! You can click here and stock up.
You will, however, need some chalk pastels. This cheap stuff still works great to get started. You can view the full supply list and get your template here.
I’m OBSESSED with this chandelier class! In about 30 minutes, Annabel Wrigley from Little Pincushion Studio teaches you how to cut out all of the individual pieces with a Cricut. Then, the assembly and decorating fun begin!
CreativeBug continues to grow and uploading the most incredible crafty classes regularly. You can even take classes for free!
You will find this tutorial in the Craft Cafe, the free magazine that is available right here. I loved this tutorial because you can use coffee filters to make a gorgeous peony or ranunculus. Stock up on coffee filters (they have to be like these and NOT these ones, or it won’t look like a flower) and a watercolour set and away you go.
Holy Christmas Crackers. How impressive is that?! This paper flower class is taught by Livia Cetti of The Green Vase. A real pro at making paper flowers. It’s no wonder she’s got lots of classes over at CreativeBug!
Oh wow! The word hollyhocks always make me think of the antiques roadshow! Thanks to Joe (from Adam and Joe, Attack The Block) and his Antiques Roadshow song. This paper flower class is also taught by Livia Cetti of The Green Vase! Just as above.
In this class, Lia Griffith shows you how to make impressive hydrangeas using a Cricut Explore machine. I’m obsessed with my Cricut machine. If you’ve been thinking about getting a die cutting machine, check out this comparison post between the Cricut Maker or the Cricut Explore Air machine.
How To Make Paper Wisteria
I adore wisteria and love how the Leanne over at Sizzix has created this paper wisteria with her Big Shot machine! I’ve made paper wisteria before but not using this technique. I ended up using long strips of pale purple tissue paper that I dipped in ink. It ended up looking rather lovely!
A Sizzix Big Shot was one of the first die cutting machines I ever bought. The version I purchased has since been retired. When I was no longer strong enough to roll the dies through, due to medical conditions I upgraded to a Silhouette portrait machine (this would be the standard kit you would need). Then when I needed to go bigger, I opted for a Cricut Explore air machine.
How To Make A Paper Flower Necklace For Kids
In this CreativeBug class, Annabel Wrigley shows you how to make the cutest paper flower necklace using her Cricut Explore machine! Again, depending on how excited about paper flowers you were, you could either take this class during your 7-day free trial or during 3 months for $1.
If you and your kiddo are feeling entrepreneurial and want to sell necklaces like this, you should check out 45 Easy Crafts That Make Money. There’s a section of crafts for kids to make and sell.

I love these flowers! Think these are my favourite. Although I’m not sure how they managed to use glitter and not get it everywhere! These are Number Three on the list of perfect fabric flowers to make. Not to mention a great idea to the paper flower tutorials directory.
