It’s been a while since I’ve done a Paper Flowers with Simple Shapes post. These sweet and easy DIY Paper Flower Toppers came to mind. The simple shape? A rectangle. I love it when a simple design comes together. These little flowers will be perfect as bows or gift toppers on your pretty packages. Want to make your own? As I do with most of my projects  here, I used my Silhouette cutting machine to cut the shapes. However these can totally be done by hand. Shall we?


The What

The How

To cut the shape with the Silhouette cutting machine:

  1. In Silhouette Studio, create a new document with the grid shown
  2. Create a rectangle with circles as shown below. Make sure the circles are wide enough for your brads
  3. Use the Replicate tool to fill the page
  4. Load your cardstock onto your Silhouette mat, and cut your shapes using cardstock settings

To cut the shape by hand:

  1. Draw and cut rectangles as shown below
  2. Use your hole punch to punch holes at the middle and ends of each rectangle

To assemble a flower (each requires 4 rectangles):

  1. Put a brad through the middle hole of a rectangle
  2. Lightly fold (without creasing) one end of the rectangle towards the middle and feed through the pointed end of the brad
  3. Repeat for the other end
  4. Using your fingers to keep the ends in place, do the same for the other 3 rectangles
  5. Secure the brad and arrange your petals so that they look like a flower
  6. Repeat for as many flowers you need
