Paper Vines: How to Make Paper Leaves and Vines

Alright guys! Today I am going to teach you a little but more about leaves and paper vines. And yeah, I am totally gonna give you a freebie! I’ve designed lots of leaves and vines since I started paper crafting and let me tell you, when you are looking at you flowers thinking, hmmm, something is missing, it is probably the leaf! I’ve even come up with some nifty ways of using my special Paper Blooms shaping mat and tool set to create a realistic vein technique on the leaves.
I’ve kinda lost track of how many different paper vines and leaves I’ve designed but I’m going to round them up for you here and let you have one today as a gift!.  So let’s go!

Paper Vine and Leaf Designs

Here is a quick round up like of my paper vine designs. Some of these are available individually while other are part of a flower design. Click each one for a link to the shop. Annnnd can you spot the free one?!

Leafy vine template set. This one is the design I use to teach you how to do the vine veining in the video below. Download your freebie here to try it yourself!

large paper leaves

The large basic leaf was my first ever leaf design. It comes with just about any of my flower designs that are not roses. It’s simple but perfect for backdrops.

Fern leaf paper vine

Our long fern leafy vine was showcased in the Giant Dahlia tutorial that create a big wave of excitement on the blog. Find it by itself here!


small fern leaf vine

My small fern leaf template is great to use with small designs like Ansley rose which is where you can find it!

Round tip lead vine

I designed the round tip vine upon request. It will give you backdrop or arrangement a slightly classic farmhouse rustic appeal.

Whimsical vine

The whimsical vine is just that, whimsical. I love this one for backdrops because it makes nice swirling effect when a lot of them are added to a backdrop of large flowers.


You will receive all the leaves shown here plus the basic standard leaf included with all giant flower templates. And lastly I have this versatile set of leaves. A little of this and that. Like one big happy leaf family!

You might be tempted to just cut out a leaf or vine and stick it near your flower without doing anything else, but there is a real technique that can make your greenery more naturally realistic. Yes, of course I made you a video to show you! Make sure to grab our Paper Blooms shaping mat and tool set to create this fun effect!
