How to Make Giant Poppy Paper Flowers: Free Paper Flower Templates

Free Poppy Paper Flower Templates

Every year I always add at least 1 new signature giant flower design to my free paper flower templates collection. While I have over a hundred affordable designs in my shop, I always enjoy giving away something new from time to time and I know that giant paper flowers are a favorite for my readers.

After all, you guys seriously blew me away when I tallied up that almost 3,000+ copies of The Art of Giant Paper Flowers have sold!

I recently revolutionize my craft space and decided to create an accent wall with bookshelves and storage in the back. I quickly noticed an empty space between the shelves and knew that paper flowers would be going there.

When I put something new on my walls that usually is a new paper flower design. Check out how they look below! And yes that vibrant teal is on my wall for real!

This tutorial is also special because I am introducing you to a different paper that I discovered works amazingly well for paper flower making.

Usually, I work with 65-pound cardstock for all my flowers and paper crafting, but I decided to try out Savage Universal paper rolls this time. To my delight, it worked great!

Savage Universal has a wide array of colors to work with, and my favorite part? They come in large rolls, so they are more budget-friendly for big projects!

I don’t think there is any downside to using Savage paper for paper crafting, personally. If I had to be picky, maybe that fact that you have to cut it yourself. However, for me, this was an easy thing to do with my xacto knife and self healing crafters mat. Plus, you can measure more exact amounts of paper and produce less waste!

    Do you have templates for small flowers. From regular sizes to tiny ones. If you do can you send me information and prices. I want a large variety if you have them. Thank you.

  2. I am not sure why but I have so much trouble on your site finding the resource library. I have subscribed to you I have ordered from you I would think the link would be easier to find. all I see is to gain access subscribe but can never just find the link. I know the password. Please help me figure out what im doing wrong.

    I tried uploading this flower’s svg files into Deisgn Space and the petals grouped together come out to be about 2 inches, so each petal is tiny. I tried using the pdf and changing it to a jpeg, uploaded it again, and it comes out way bigger. Any idea on how to fix it or get the correct petal size?

    1. Hi Marissa,

      There is more than one SVG file so you might be uploading the small petals which are close to 2 inches. The video tutorial on my YouTube channel also contains exact petal measurements in the description if you should need them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMDiL7quyWw&t=4s 🙂

    2. Thank you for the free template and the resource vault! Love them. I plan to use them for my baby shower!

  4. Do you know what weight the Savage paper is?

  5. Your poppy paper flowers came out so cute, and I love your tutorial!
