Make Your Very Own Paper Flower Unicorn Wall Décor!

If you haven’t gotten down and crafty yet this year, now is the perfect time to start. For our second week celebrating National Papercrafting Month, we created this beautiful, large scale, floral wall décor and are giving you our Cricut Design Space™ file, FREE, to recreate this very same project at home!

(Click on the individual images for a closer look!)

In order to keep things simple, we manipulated shapes from just one of our Cricut® collections, Flower Market, while designing our arrangement.  If you don’t own the Cricut® Flower Market Collection, contact your Close To My Heart Consultant (or find one near you, here) to get started.

To give you an idea of the physical size of this project, the center French Vanilla flower is 20″ in diameter, both Peach flowers are 17″, the Lilac flowers are 14″, and the smaller Mint flowers are 13½” each.

When you open the file in Design Space, you will find some hexagon shapes among the petal shapes. These are your bases for each of the flowers. Attach the petals of each flower, layering them from largest to smallest, to these bases. You will also notice that the eyelashes are quite large. They are so large, in fact, that when you attempt to “make it” the program will tell you that you need a 12″ x 24″ mat. We did not use a longer mat to cut these, so there is a way around it! When the prompt comes up, all you need to do is select the image and rotate it to make it fit diagonally in the 12″ x 12″ square.

We don’t want any of our readers to feel left out, so for those of you who do not use Cricut®, a few months ago, our very own Jill Broadbent visited Studio5 and shared how to make similar large paper flowers without a cutting machine.

Every little (and grownup) girl deserves to know just how gorgeous she is! Happy crafting!

  1. Thank you for this template! I have a Cricut but some of my customers do not and I LOVE that thy are included! Also the sizes are helpful for me as I am designing a Flower wall for an upcoming Event!! Thanks again CTMH!

  2. Yes this is beautiful, I do agree that flower sizes would be helpful, even if it was just mentioned as a side note

    • Thanks for the feedback! The center French Vanilla flower is 20″ in diameter, both Peach flowers are 17″, the Lilac flowers are 14″, and the smaller Mint flowers are 13½” each.

    • Yes. Make sure you have access to the Flower Market collection on Design Space. If not, contact your Close To My Heart Consultant to get it. If you’re still having any issues, please reach out again. <3

    • Note that when you bring it into design space that there are hidden and you have to click on the eye that hides them to show them.

  3. Such a shame the old Cricut machines using cartridges are no longer catered for. No software to be able to design and create.

    • Maggie,
      CTMH has graciously included a PDF file on how to create these gorgeous flowers without using the Cricut machine!! Love that CTMH did that for us, even when Provo Craft (those that create Cricut) has new machines that only use Design Space! 🙂 How thoughtful & KIND of CTMH to think of those that don’t have Design Space yet! 🙂

      As far as the wording—any Cricut machine can cut the words. The font chosen for this project is from our “Flower Market” exclusive Cricut collection…a favorite of mine personally 🙂

      Enjoy creating these beautiful flowers! 🙂

    • When the prompt comes up, all you need to do is select the image and rotate it to make it fit diagonally in the 12″ x 12″ square. We only used 12″ x 12″ paper to make what you see here.

    • Not published. Is there something specifically that you are having a hard time figuring out? Please let us know how we can help. <3

      • Are you rolling the petals to give them some dimension as they don’t look “flat” in the picture? Also is there a spacing to follow as far as placing the petals onto the various hexagon shapes? Thank you!!

  5. Silly question, but could you tell me what pages of the flowers you used each color on? I’m having a hard time distinguishing when to switch colors when preparing the mats. Thank you for the adorable design!
