Every now and then I like to take one of our kits and see what I can create with it. Typically I take the flower kits and mix them up to create paper flower bouquets (like this one). So this time I decided to take one of our greenery kits and see what I could make! This creative exploration resulted in four frosted paper plants that are absolutely gorgeous.
If you do not want to purchase the kit, I have included the fern and eucalyptus patterns below for you to download. Because the paper leaves are intricate, I recommend using a cutting machine. But you can also use our template if you want to cut by hand.
Beleaf in your creative skills
Our pattern includes two designs for the paper fern leaves and two designs for the paper eucalyptus leaves. Once you have cut all of your greenery, our tutorial will show you how simple it is to bundle your leaves together to create some frosted paper plants you can display anywhere in your home.
To give our plants more depth, we varied the colors so each plant includes at least three different shades. This is a great opportunity for you to play around with colors and see what you like best! When you are done crafting your paper eucalyptus and fern plants, be sure to share photos of your creations with us on our private Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.

How to Make Frosted Paper Plants
- Gather the craft tools and materials you need from our list.
- Pop out all paper ferns and eucalyptus from our frosted paper kit, or use our SVG files to cut the leaves from frosted paper.
- With a high-temp glue gun, attach binding wire to centers of each greenery piece. Gently shape longer leaves with curling tool.
- Arrange into bundle with wired sides facing down. Twist wires to create a bundle.

Thank you for such a speedy reply. Yes, I did unzip the file correctly. I have downloaded several of your flower templates and used them successfully. However, this is the only template that I am having difficulty uploading into the Cricut software. The error that I receive calls the “unsupported file” a “text issue.”
I really love your creative aesthetic with your projects and the fantastic website and offerings you bring to the crafting community.
I’m using several of your templates to create my final “personal reflection” project in my Design II class this semester. I’m really excited to create an engaging piece that reflects my journey of transformation during these past two years. I started back to college at 56 years young, then my 28-year-old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2021 and I was later diagnosed with breast cancer this past September. I have personally gone thru a tremendous transformation in discovering my love of creating with my hands using new mediums to me (namely charcoal and graphite and designing in materials of wood and paper). I have always had an affinity for flora and fauna and will be using the medium of paper the create the transformative properties of flowers with my last project this semester.
I’m grateful for creators like yourself when you share your talents and present the community with thoughtful and engaging content.
Thank you Lia,
Hello Pam! Happy Monday. I went in and took a look at the file and I think I see what the issue was. It should be working now. I appreciate it when you all let us know when something is not working so we can troubleshoot.
Thank you for sharing your story with us. The team and I are all sending you and your daughter piles of love.
I’ve tried to download the SVG file for my Cricut Maker and my software tells me it isn’t supported and won’t upload the SVG file. Is this a glitch?
Hi Pamela. Did you uncompress your SVG? We have a video to show you how to use our files. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/how-to-use-files-cricut/
I’ve loved your videos and free projects. However, this is my first project as a a paid subscriber and I’m disappointed. There is an extra cut line on the fern template so four of the leave on the left are cut off. Also, the directions were paltry – I expected at least some guidance as to how many leaves/frond to cut to achieve the look in the photo.
Hi Stacie – thanks for your feedback. We always test our SVG cut files before adding them to the project post, but once in awhile there are little glitches or errors we don’t catch. We will always do our best to fix it quickly! I believe I fixed the issue here so please download again and email us (email@example.com) if it has not been resolved.
