Paper Flower Spring Centerpiece

All the hints of Spring coming are starting to get to me.  I decided that I needed to do something about it, so I put this Paper Flower Spring Centerpiece together. It’s got me excited for Spring to get here. Is anyone else excited for Spring? What do you do to bring Spring into your home? One of the first things I think about doing this time of year is bringing color inside. I love color, and after a long cold winter, I look forward to lots of colorful things. Today’s project is the perfect thing to bring fun colors into your home and help get you ready for Spring! I’m so excited to be sharing this on The Happy Scraps today!


With my Cricut Explore machine, I cut several flowers out of all different papers. Using a paper piercer, I started rolling them really small. Once I got far enough with the rolling, I was able to just use my fingers to roll the paper. For some flowers, it was easier to lay it on the table and roll. Once you get to the center, you can let the flower loosen a little bit if you’d like, and then glue the larger circle to the bottom of the flower.  I found that glue dots worked really well.

Once all the flowers are put together, you are ready to put them in the container. I chose to use this fun oval shaped tin, that I purchased from Pick Your Plum.  I cut some foam core board to put in the bottom of the container, so the flowers would show over the top. Once I had the foam core board as tall as I wanted, I put some coordinating paper down on it. Then I was ready to glue the flowers down. I just used my hot glue gun.

And here is the finished project! Those flowers make me want to squeal!

I love the character that the tin tray adds.

Isn’t it so fun?! I love fresh flowers, but I’ll be able to enjoy these for a few months, and not have to throw them out.

What kind of fun and bright colored Spring decorations do you like to put up?

  29. Beautiful! Which cartridge did you use, or is it a built in feature of your machine?

    • One of the flowers is on the Close to my Heart – Art Philosophy Cricut Bundle Cartridge, the other three designs that I used are on the Flower Shoppe cartridge. There are several other flower options on the Flower Shoppe cartridge as well, I don’t think there would be need to purchase both cartridges. I hope that helps! :)

    • Awesome, thanks!

  30. Beautiful quick question can this be done with the original cricut machine?

    • Yes! One of the flowers is on the Close to my Heart – Art Philosophy Cricut Bundle Cartridge, the other three designs that I used are on the Flower Shoppe cartridge. So if you have those cartridges, you could certainly use them with your machine. If you don’t have them, I would recommend just purchasing the Flower Shoppe cartridge, because it has several flower options on it. I don’t think there would be need to purchase both cartridges. :)
