We get so many questions about the vases we use for our crepe paper flowers. But this time they’re handmade! After some requests that we make a paper vase, Krista came up with this gorgeous design that we absolutely love. These geometric paper vases are a beginner-friendly project — perfect for displaying your finished paper or felt flowers.
To get started, check out our tools and materials list below. And be sure to read our crafting tips!
You never know until you try-angle
It’s truly amazing what you can create with just a bit of paper and some glue. Our template below includes three different sizes (as shown in the photos). And our tutorial will walk you through each step.
For the finishing touch, we added a crepe paper clematis flower to each vase. We can’t wait to see your geometric paper vases and what flowers you place inside! Be sure to share them with us by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram or posting photos to our private Facebook page for members.
Skill level: Beginner or higher
Crafting tips: If you choose to make your geometric paper vases by hand, we recommend you print the template directly onto your paper of choice. There are 3 heights of vases, requiring 2 sheets of cardstock paper each. Once you’ve assembled your vase, we recommend placing a small glass jar or vase inside the paper vase and using it more like a sheathe (this is to help weigh it down). You can also fill it with rice.

- Cutting Machine (recommended)
- Detail Knife (optional, if cutting by hand)
- Cutting Mat and Ruler (if cutting by hand)
- Bone Folder (I recommend this over our curling tool because the length + pointed tip works best for assembly and gluing the sides together)
How to Make Geometric Paper Vases
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the template below.
- Cut out and score the paper vase according to template. If you are not using a cutting machine, it is recommended you print directly onto your paper of choice and then cut it out with a detail knife and ruler. Note that the base part in the files fits all the vase sizes.
- Fold along the score lines, all in the same direction. We folded our vases so that the initial score lines (or printed doted lines) are on what will be the inside of the vase.
- Glue the tabs on the hexagon base to the lower part of the vase on the inside.
