A Special Cricut Announcement…
We are so excited to share these giant paper flower bouquets from all around the USA! Can you guess which region of America each of these bouquets is from? We were invited by Cricut to design and make nine jumbo paper flower bouquets for their annual Mountain Make-A-Thon, happening in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are so proud of these and are thrilled with how all of them turned out!
Three all-new Cricut products are being launched at the Make-A-Thon, each with a focus on innovation. The first product is the Cricut Bright Pad – a super-slim light pad that allows you to weed more easily. It also allows you to trace illustrations and patterns. The second product is the Cricut Easy Press – a heat press that combines the speed of a heat press with the convenience of an iron. It’s very fast, and it has a timer and a temp gauge. Makes creating projects with iron-on so much faster, safer and easier.
The Cricut Maker
The third and final product is the Cricut Maker – a new personal cutting machine that cuts more than ever. Almost 4 years in the making! It cuts felt, leather, balsa wood and 100’s of different fabrics. It will cut a simple sewing project pattern in fifteen minutes, where it would otherwise take almost an hour and a half to cut by hand. We used this new machine to create all nine of our beautiful jumbo bouquets and fell in love! We’re so excited about these new Cricut products!
Today we are taking you on a tour of the US with a closer look at each of these Cricut Maker-made bouquets, giving you step-by-step tutorials and templates for you to easily recreate at home. Pictured below:

I am having an issue staying logged in. I am a member but on the Bouquets page I can not find the SVG Files to download??? HELP 😑 On the other Hand I am very very freshly new to the paper-crafting world and I recently purchased the ‘Silhouette Cameo 4’ . I love your site and your work the crepe paper flowers are just gorgeous!!!!! Thank you for all the info and files you’ve been a great help and guide on the “how-to” !!!!!

The list of projects is now included in this post, so you can click each bouquet and it will lead you the post with more information where to download all the parts and pieces for each bouquet. Please reach out anytime if you continue to have trouble! firstname.lastname@example.org
What am I doing wrong? I am so frustrated!!! I have purchased a membership. I have ordered a ton of Lia Griffith crepe paper from Amazon. I’ve purchased wire and florist tape. I am ready to go! How do I find SVG files to download for Cricut???Everywhere I go on this site is a dead end!!! HELP!!!
The SVG files are provided at the bottom of each project page you must click to download, some of our older projects do not have an SVG but you can request for one to be made! Check out this video on how to use our SVG files with the Cricut https://liagriffith.com/how-to-use-svg-files-for-cricut/ If you have anymore questions about SVG files please contact email@example.com so we can better assist you 🙂
What is frosted paper and where can I can get it. Does it go by another name? I am in the USA and just can’t find frosted paper. I love your beautiful flowers and would love to try some of my own. Thanks so much for your help
Hi Debby– it’s also called Metallic or Pearlized paper! We purchase from PaperPapers.com.
These are stunning!! I have just bought the maker after buying your crepe paper flowers book to make lots of decor for our wedding. May i ask, what material setting do you recommend for your heavy crepe paper? I’ve tried the normal crepe setting with more pressure but it hasn’t quite cut through it.
Thank you Natalie! I usually start with the Denim or Cotton setting. I recently filmed a YouTube Live showing tips & tricks you may want to check out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91IyqbcFQzk&t=2434s
Hi Lia! I am from Romania, and I would like to purchase a cricut explore air machine. Is there any possibility to find this tool in Europe? Thanks!
Hi Maria! I’m not sure about that one– you should reach out to Cricut’s customer service, they’ll be able to guide you best where to buy their machines 🙂
Yes, it is. If you have not found one by now I just bought mine, a cricut maker, from a german store at craft-robo.de.
The site is all in german but it has pictures of the machines so you will find your way around.
Very good and fast service.
The cricut arrived in a matter of days.
Will these work on the Silhouette?
Yes, you’ll just need to convert our SVG files to STUDIO files 🙂
Are these available in the design space?
No, just on our site 🙂
One word, WOW.
Well thank you!! 🙂
hello team Lia,
I wish to make these beautiful flower boutiques. could you please tell me where can i find pdf files for the same? i do not have access to your kits as i am living in india. i also do not have circuit machine
Hello! We will post PDF templates along with each bouquet and individual flower as we roll them out over the next few weeks!
I can’t wait to see them!
Your bouquets are just beautiful. I truly enjoy make the flowers. The problem for me is arranging them so they look as gorgeous as yours. Would you consider doing some videos on flower arranging in the near future?
Thank you Sharyn! I do have a few posts on arranging flowers, but will consider it for a video shoot 🙂
Hey Lia, I have been a member for several years and have enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for your inspiration!
I purchased a Cricut rather than its competitor several years ago based on your comparison of the two machines. Making crepe paper flowers is about 80% of my crafting and once you came out with your line, I use it exclusively. I would love to buy the new Cricut Maker IF it is accurate and would save time. I am aware that you are a spokesperson for Cricut, but would love your opinion regarding the new machine’s working with crepe paper. Many thanks.
Hi Rosemary! In all honesty… I LOVE the Cricut Maker (and they don’t really pay me to say so). lol. It will cut my crepe paper which is perfect for detailed cuts and complicated leaves. The only drawback is that it only cuts one layer at a time, so in some cases it may be faster to hand cut stacks of simple petal shapes. We are excited to use this machine with leather, wood and felt and you may be seeing more of this kind of project on our site. We will still be using our Explore for all of our non-crepe paper, vinyl and iron-on projects.
These flowers and arrangements are exquisite! I can name all of these flowers, as my mother owned, designed and operated a florist. You are truly amazingly talented as is your team. Looking forward to purchasing the Cricut Maker and making your stunning flowers!
Thank you so much:-)
Can you cut it on the explorer air?
You can cut anything paper easily enough on the Explorer Air, but felt, leather, fabric, and crepe I would not recommend. You could always cut them out by hand, and we will be posting PDF files alongside SVG cut files very soon.
These are totally amazing!! They look like real. I am curious though, being on a budget, which of these could not be cut using an explore? I realize the felt might be a problem but I think it can be cut according to the website.
I would not recommend cutting out felt, thick leather, fabric (without a stabilizer), or crepe on the Explore. You could still cut by hand obviously, but it will just be a bit more time consuming vs. using the new machine. 🙂
Absolutely stunning! I had no idea they were not real even when I watched the video that Melody Lane did. I may have to have that machine to to make these.
Thank you, we are so excited about all the possibilities this machine offers. No more having to cut by hand:-)
These are absolutely stunning! I cannot wait for the tutorial. Amazing! In love with these. ?
Thank you so much:-) Tutorials coming soon!
All of them wonderfull, some of them so’ perfect that at the first glimp you cannot tell if it is paper or real flowers. My compliments!
Thank you so much, we look forward to sharing all of the patterns!!
Love love love. Can’t wait to make some of these.
I am pretty speechless looking at these magnificent bouquets, and can only guess which states they come form – perhaps I could guess 2 lol!
Thank you:-) We had so much fun coming up with new flower patterns representing the various regions of our gorgeous country!!!We are looking forward to sharing them all over the next couple of weeks!
Can you use the new cricut machine coming in August on your fine crepe paper. . .?
I ran across your site and joined right away. Best membership ever
Yes, we are so excited that the new machine cuts crepe paper!!!! Cannot wait to get our hands on a few of them, we only got one to make these bouquets! We are so happy you are enjoying the membership:-) We have a full lineup of fantastic projects to share….
Beautiful! I’m working on my wedding bouquet and was wondering if you have a pattern for the little 5 pointed petal flowers in pink and white in the second to last photo. Thanks!
Yes, it is a jasmine flower and we will be sharing the pattern next week. Just working on some finishing details. Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!
You and your team are amazing. My house will be filled with these beauties I can see that in the future. XOXO
Thank you, you are making us all blush;-)xx
