DIY geometric paper vases

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.

How to Make Geometric Paper Vases

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the template above to the right of the page.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Glue the tabs on the hexagon base to the lower part of the vase on the inside.
