These past two days have been CRAZY. First, I lost my friend’s cat and I was SO SO stressed out about it. Couldn’t sleep at night wondering where on earth the poor kitty is and how to get it back. The next day I was so stressed out, walking all around the neighborhood in search of the cat and in my stress, I thought one of the neighbor’s cats hiding in her garage is my friend’s cat. Turned out, IT WASN’T and my neighbor was pretty mad about me stalking her cat.
Anyway, my friend’s back from the holidays and when I told her about the cat, she took it all in very calmly and told me not to stress about it anymore. Ah, I feel so much better now after talking to her. Finally, I can sleep at night.
Okay onto today’s tutorial where I’m sharing how to create rolled paper flowers and turn a portrait or an image into an SVG decal that you can cut out using Cricut on vinyl or paper.

- 65lb in weight – this weight cardstock is THE BEST for making flowers
- the cardstock shouldn’t have a white center core
- it should be colored on both the back and the front
Here are some cardstocks brands that I recommend for creating paper flowers.
