Jumbo paper flowers make such fun wall decor. We think these jumbo paper daisies would be perfect for a kid’s room. Or you can use them as party decorations for a birthday, bridal shower, or baby shower.
Get started by checking out our supplies list below. Then download our tutorial to see how we combined cardstock with a bit of crepe paper to make them!
Going daisy for jumbo flowers
In the past we have mostly used crepe paper and frosted paper to make jumbo flowers. But now that we carry cardstock, we were eager to see how this thicker paper would work for these jumbo paper daisies. Using cardstock for the layered petals gives this flower a beautiful, structural look while fringing the crepe paper for the center makes it look delightfully soft and fluffy.
We would love to see your version of these paper flowers and how you decorate with them! Be sure to share photos on our crafters community page or by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
Skill level: Intermediate due to all of the fringing
Crafting tip: We recommend cutting anything jumbo sized by hand, but you can always use your cutting machine if you prefer.

I’m uk based and not sure about our availability of good card stock. Also the crepe paper, ours is flimsy, how can I be sure I get the right stuff?
Hello Lynn. Check Amazon UK for our brand of crepe paper. Last time I looked, it was stocked with our 10 packs. For the cardstock, as long as it is for card making rather than kid’s crafts, it should work for you.
I’m trying to figure out how many of these I will need to make for a photo Backdrop – can you ptell me the approximate width of the finished daisies? Thank you!
They are about 24 inches. Plus or minus a bit. 🙂
I don’t think I understand how to cut the fringe to get it to look like yours. Can you help?
Hi Lori! Come to our Master Classed Member Make workshops, and you will learn all of our tips and tricks. These are member favorites. 🙂
In Firefox, all the PDF template pages are blank for me, as well. (All but the last page, which does show your copyright info.) I opened it in Google Chrome and the PDF looks as it should.
Good to know. I can see them in my Firefox, but trying different browsers is a great idea.
Is Botanical (paper color) unable to be purchased anymore?
Hi Lisa, I am not sure what color or paper you are referring to. Is there a cardstock color by that name? Or are you referring to the botanical 10-color pack that is crepe paper?
Oh I got it – they were 80lb cardstock. Thank you
Happy New Year to Lia and Team! Just wondering what’s the weight of your cardstocks? I have 65 lb and 80 lb cardstocks so I was hoping I can use them for this project.
We carry 80lb but this project will work with any cardstock. 🙂
Thanks for the beautifull project. I opened the pdf template and is empty, just white pages.
It might be a browser error. When you click the button it will open a new browser window, and you can use the download button to put the file onto your computer. Try that then open the PDF and see if you can see it then.
Just love all the colors in cardstock. I do make lots of projects out of cardstock and can’t t wait to use your colors.
We had such a good time curating these colors. We planned to have just four sets, but. . . I just could not say no to the others. lol
