Cut-and-Fold Fabric Flowers

Add a romantic touch to your wedding décor. These four-step DIY blooms can make an impression cascading down a cake, but don’t let your imagination stop there. You can create a mix of 3 1/2" flowers by varying the weight of the textiles used.

  1. Download, print, and cut out our free flower template. Trace template onto fabric and cut with fabric scissors.
  2. Fold flower in half from left to right; unfold and then fold in half again from top to bottom.
  3. Flip over and rotate 45° so the creases make an X shape. Repeat step 2. You will end up with two sets of crossed creases.
  4. Pinch petals into a flower shape. Add a drop of glue to the center of blossom to hold shape, or poke a wire through center to create a stemmed bloom.
