DIY Paper Gerbera Daisies

DIY_Gerbera_Daisies_Paper I have to admit that I find a great joy in inventing my version on paper flowers every week. Gerbera daisies are such a happy flower so it seems that this week I have a double dose of cheer. I made these paper blooms with a variety of papers in text weight (anything lighter than card stock) that I purchased at Some are metallic and others are an uncoated stock. The centers of each bloom are finished with a glitter paper in either black or lime green which are two common colors for the gerbera centers. I have provided  the pattern below for both a printable template and an SVG file for all of you who do have cutting machines. Of course to save time so I can get onto the next project for you, I used my Cricut Explore to make this gorgeous bouquet. Once you have gathered your paper and materials, just follow my step-by-step tutorial below. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  11. Adoro las gerberas, lástima que las de verdad duran poco, ahora voy a poder tener un ramo por mucho tiempo.Gracias Lía!!!! me encantan todos tus trabajos

  12. So gorgeous Lia, love Gerbera daisies so much. I have some colored card stock and noticed in previous comment you say it’s ok to use card stock for these flowers. Fantastic project, thanks so much for sharing your incredible creations. Hope you’re enjoying your vacation. Happy days

    • I call them Happy Flowers because they always put a smile on my face, glad to hear you are enjoying them too. And a bonus that you got to use your colored card stock.

  13. These are so pretty. I love all your crafts. Its amazing :)

  14. Thank you so much for sharing your flowers and tutorials. I love them all and have made a few. They brighten up any room in the house.

    • Happy to hear you love flowers as much as I do, great thing about paper is that they last and need no water;-) I actually owned a flower shop in a previous life.

  15. Seriously? I don’t want you to go t any great effort. I will try to do a comparison from the paper paper website. Please only if it is EASY for you.

    • Hello! I am working with Paper-Papers on adding my projects with the papers I use so that it is a bit easier to order from them. Hope to have the Gerbera up within the next few weeks. Thanks for your patience!

  16. Do you think card stock paper is too heavy for these? its all I have in colors…

    • I think these are going to be okay in card stock. It is the petals that have more curl that need the lighter paper. Give it a try and let me know how they look.

  17. Love love love your work. Any chance you would reveal the color names of your daisies? Such a gorgeous palett! Thank you for your inspiration

  18. Gerberas are my favourite flowers and these are beautiful. thanks for sharing!

  21. These are awesome. Can’t wait to give them a try.

  22. Thank you so much, my daughter had these for her bridal bouquet . Yours are beautiful !!!

  23. Another awesome craft from you. May I ask where you find your paper that you use. I would love to do the succulents like you did a while ago, but I can’t seem to find any paper that suits my fancy.

  24. These are beautiful! I have the Cricut expression. Can you tell me which cartridge you could use to make this flower. Thanks!

    • These are my designs so I did not use a cartridge. They will however be available in the Cricut Design Space very soon if you have the new Explore. Also, with the Explore you can upload the SVG I have here.

  25. Hi Lia, I’ve downloaded the Gerbera SVG file but it will not open in Studio 3.The message is that the file may be corrupt. Anyone else had this problem?

  26. I love gerbera daisies! Thank you so much for the file for these gorgeous flowers
