How to Stem a Paper Flower for Bouquets and Arrangements

Making small paper flowers are really fun and easy, especially if you have a cutting machine. But what if you want to put your paper flower in a arrangement or bouquet?

You will need to figure out a way to stem it. Of course I decided to share my technique to create stems for paper flowers so making your paper floral arrangement can be a snap!

– Small paper flower  – Leaf base  – 18 gauge wire – Glue gun


Using your 18 gauge wire bend it at one end at a 90 degree angle. You want the bend to start about an inch down from the top.

Working the wire with your fingers, mold the wire into a circle.

Using a hole punch, make a hole in the center. If you are using SVG cut files you can always use your Slice tool in Cricut Design Space with a circle so you machine does this part for you.

Grab your prepared wire stem and thread it through the center hole, pushing it all the way up to the top.
