Tropical blooms like this hibiscus flower template in today’s tutorial are always a favorite of mine because of the vibrant colors.
If you have looked around at my crafts here on the blog at all you know I am a huge lover of color.
I have spent a lot of time conquering cardstock paper flowers over the last few years and sharing with you all along the way, but now I am venturing into crepe paper. Even though both have their unique looks like my giant paper hibiscus and giant Hawaiian plumeria, I really love the realistic touch of the crepe paper.

You will need to cut out the following number of petals:
Cut out 5 hibiscus petals, 10-12 center petals, plus leaves to your preference.
With this hibiscus flower template you can hand cut with the printable PDF outline files or use the SVG cut files with a cutting machine. Cricut Maker is the only one I know of that works with crepe paper using the rotary blade.
