This centerpiece make with Cricut flowers was so easy and fun to make! It’s a lovely little spring project that you can create once and store away to use year after year.

Should You Get a Cricut Machine?

Before we dive into the Cricut flowers, one of the questions I get asked the most about crafting is this: Do you have a Cricut machine, and is it worth it?

We have always done tons of Cricut projects here, and my answer to whether the machine is worth it is a hard-core, resounding yes.

I can’t tell you how many hours of cutting my Cricut machine has saved me over the years; I actually did a post breaking down how much money you can save with a Cricut!

For more info on how much money I save, how much I use my Cricut, and to find out the best Cricut machine for you, check out these posts:

Spring Centerpiece with Cricut Flowers

We used the machine to make a Cricut flower spring centerpiece and it’s another perfect example of how it can make projects go insanely fast!

If you’re used to cutting things by hand and you’re a regular crafter, I think you’ll find that a cutting machine like this one will speed your projects along in a way that you could never imagine.

You’ll also save hours of cramping hands and scissor blisters!

Spring and Easter Decor

I love this fun and colorful spring centerpiece for Easter decor! Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, it’s such a fun project to do for spring.

The way that we’ve created the Cricut flowers makes it so that you can disassemble them, lay them completely flat, and pack them away in an envelope for the next year.

I love holiday decor that packs up easily and only takes up a little space in storage! Such a great solution for decorating and not having to store huge pieces.

Materials You’ll Need to Create Cricut Flowers

You don’t need too many supplies to create Cricut flowers for a spring centerpiece. But here’s the breakdown of supplies you should have.

Cricut Machine. A Cricut is one of my most-used tools, and it’s crucial for this project! You can see this post to find out which one might be right for you.

Cardstock. For this project, a nice thick cardstock works well. You can try a lighter weight cardstock but you may find that your Cricut flowers tend to move around or tip over with a little breeze or jostling.

Poster Putty. Poster putty is a nice thing to have on hand for this project in case you find that your Cricut flowers won’t stay where you want them. You can apply a little poster putty to the base of your flowers to keep them in place on the table.

Flower Templates. You can find links to our flower templates below!

Make a Paper Flower Spring Centerpiece

Let’s make a Cricut flower centerpiece for your home!

Make the Cricut Flowers

  1. Download our flower stem and flower petal templates. Upload them into your Cricut Design Space as cut-only images. Start by adding the stems to a new project. Size the stems so that they are no taller than 10 inches on the long side.
  2. Load green paper onto your light grip mat. Set the dial to Cardstock. Cut out your stems!
  3. Once you’re done cutting the stems, weed out the excess paper. Then carefully pull the stems and crossbars from the mat. I like to place the mat face down, hold the cut piece, and then pull the mat away from the paper so that the paper doesn’t curl.
  4. Assemble your stems. Place two stem pieces back to back. Then slide the crossbar pieces into the slots on either side (each stem template has two extra crossbars just in case). This should leave you with a stem piece that stands up on its own.
  5. Now add the flower petal template to a new project. Size these according to the size of your stems; we sized ours so that each flower was a little wider than 2″. Load the paper of your choice onto your cutting mat and put the machine on the appropriate settings. Cut out your flowers. Once cut, remove them from the cutting mat.

Assemble the Flowers

  1. Now add your petals to the stems! Each flower should have two stems pushing through the center slit (because your stems are back to back to make them stronger). Load all of your petals on and arrange the flowers on your table as a centerpiece!
  2. Repeat until you have all of the flowers that you’d like.
  3. If you find that your flowers are toppling over, add a little bit of museum putty to the bottom of the stems, at the “x” of each crossbar. This will help stabilize the whole piece.

More WAys To Use Your Cricut Flowers

Aren’t these insanely cute? They’d be really fun as individual placecards, too — just write your guests’ names on the base of the stems and place one by each plate.

And the Cricut machine cuts these out in no time at all. I think all the cutting total took about 20 minutes.

  1. Oh, my gosh! This project just screams SPRING to me. What an awesome way to liven up a space. Bonus that these flowers won’t wilt.

  2. Yep, I’ve debated and debated getting that cutter……. ☺️ Didn’t realize it could do that much that quickly! Wow. Flowers are adorable!

  3. I love these! I’m wondering if you think it would be possible to do this without a cutter? I’m looking to decorate a table but I’m kind of on a Budget?

    1. Hi Sami! You could definitely cut these by hand — just download the file, cut one set, and trace it onto the paper you want. Then cut out the tracings.

  4. Love your Paper Flower s
    Spring Centrepiece.
    I uploaded the stems with no problem but the flowers only upload as a print and cut not as a cut only.
    I uploaded it several times but each time it does not allow me to upload as cut only.
    What can I do???

    1. Hi Else!
      There should be an option to select cut only for any file you upload. If that’s not working, check that you have the most recent update of the Design Space software. I’d recommend closing out of the program and a computer restart once you update the software to make sure everything is working properly! Thanks!
