As much as we love paper flowers here at Lia Griffith, we don’t mind highlighting the supporting cast from time to time. I happen to love ferns and moss, and to be honest, they’re among some of my favorite plants to design. So, I’m always happy to create something that celebrates their quiet diversity. Not every centerpiece needs a colorful bloom, and this Cardstock Maidenhair Fern is a perfect example of a plant that can shine on its own.
This maidenhair fern is a beginner-friendly craft that still manages to pack a punch style-wise. Though it’s appropriate for all skill levels, there are quite a few pieces to cut out for this project, so we recommend a cutting machine to speed things along. Once you’ve gathered your materials, scroll down to the tutorial below.

The look of fresh greenery can’t be outmatched, but sometimes the upkeep can be a little much. Imagine a beautiful potted plant to add some nature to your home or office without the added mess of dirt and water — perfection! With its long, lush stems, this maidenhair fern would look so chic on your fireplace mantel or as a table centerpiece. Simply add some colored stokes to each leaf using the Karin brush markers to give the leaves some dimension.
We’d love to see your lovely fern once you’re all finished, so remember to upload your pics to our crafters’ community. Also, you can use the hashtag #MadeWithLia when posting your creations on Instagram.
