Cut out your plumeria petals

I cut out 5-6 petals for this flower. Plumerias typically have 5, but you can do some with 6 for variation. You can hand-cut with scissors using the printable PDF files or use the SVG cut files with a cutting machine like the Cricut Maker, which cuts crepe paper with a rotary blade!

A colorful bunch of orange, white and pink plumeria flowers rest on green leaves on a light grey tabletop with a blue backdrop. "Abbi Kirsten Collections" is written in pink text in the lower left-hand corner. The flowers are made from delicate crepe paper and a Cricut machine.

These paper plumeria flowers are very easy to make and simplistic. Get playful with the colors and the panpastel pigments, which really make them come to life.
