Paper Flowers, Winter Aconite SVG Template and Tutorial


Download and craft life-like paper flowers with this winter aconite SVG cutting machine template for Cricut or Silhouette. Winter aconite has small, buttercup-like flowers with a detailed flower center and a single leaf that forms a ruffled collar beneath the bloom. The finished flower is about 1.25" wide with a 2.25" leaf. The cutting file also includes a stand alone leaf to complete the display. The example flowers use colored paper with additional color added by hand using markers and pastels. Use your favorite coloring medium or create your version without additional color. Downloads include a four-page, step-by-step tutorial with photos (PDF).

Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced (multiple small detailed pieces to cut and hand color, but you can do this!)
