Rolled Paper Flowers with the Cricut

I declare today Rolled Paper Flower Day!

Rolled Paper Flowers are simple to make, adaptable and have the appearance of intricacy, when they’re not!

Cricut has an entire image set devoted to quilled flowers.  It’s called Flower Shoppe and it’s FREE to all Cricut Access subscribers, too!

Here is the FREE Design Space file for all six of these rolled flowers:

For today, we are going to focus on these spiral shapes, which have all sorts of fun edges. I’ve chosen the scalloped edge ones and put them on my canvas, which are available in my project file below, but feel free to check out the full set of images by searching for the Flower Shoppe cartridge in Cartridge Search.

Once I pulled the spiral shape to my mat, I make sure they are the size I want. I like to make my quilled flowers on the small size so that they work with my quilling tool, but you can experiment with the size to suit your taste.

In this example the shapes are about 3 inches in size, which allows me to fit 9 shapes on one mat.

Once quilled, these three inch spirals will shrink to about an inch wide, so keep that proportion in mind.

When the cut is complete, carefully remove the excess paper from your mat.

Caution! You may become mesmerized when you remove the excess paper from the mat.

Isn’t that so interesting to watch?

After removing the excess paper, carefully remove the spirals from your mat. These are a bit fragile, so do use caution. I recommend bending your mat to help remove each spiral. Cricut mats are very bendy, so don’t be afraid to do that to ensure none of your cuts get ripped.

Once removed, you should have a pile of spirals that are now ready to be spun.


The quilling part requires a little tool you can get at any craft store and it looks like this. It’s basically a pen with a little tip that has a slit in it.

If you can’t find a quilling tool, you can use tweezers or even a dowel. Someone even told me they use a motorized drill to quill theirs!

However way you choose, start with the outside edge of the spiral and twirl the spiral upon itself. This does require practice and patience. Go easy with yourself!  (Please pardon my ugly, un-manicured fingers!)

Once you get to the middle of the spiral, carefully remove the wound flower from the tool while holding the outside edge. You’ll notice that the inside end of the spiral has a little circle. This is for your glue.

Drop some glue on that circle and rest it on the edge of the quilled flower.

Note: you can decide to allow your flower to unwind a lot or a little depending on your taste. I let mine unwind a little bit before doing the glue.

Hold the rolled flower to the circle base for a minute until it fully adheres together.

White all purpose glue works just fine for this job, but if you’re brave you can also use a glue gun. I’m not brave, so I avoid the glue gun whenever possible.

Here’s what a completed quilled flower looks like!

Note that–depending on your project–you may need to make dozens of these little beauties. I recommend cutting out more than you think you’ll need and relaxing in an easy chair to do the rolling.

Your completed flowers can be used for a myriad of projects. I’ve seen some really gorgeous shadow boxes filled with these flowers and decorated with vinyl on the glass. Stunning!

What will you use your completed quilled flowers for? Let me know in the comments or on my official Facebook page.

Here’s the Pinterest pin for this project:

I do hope you will try making these delightful little rolled flowers. They are so cute and you will definitely feel a sense of accomplishment once you complete one!

Now…go forth and Cricut, my friends!

Best always!!!
