Happy Friday! Just as promised, I am here to give you the new tutorial for the older four, plus three brand new paper succulent plant patterns that we released yesterday. We added the three new designs to give our arrangements a different texture and height we were looking for in this table centerpiece.
To keep things together in one spot, here are the steps for creating these simple-to-make paper succulent plants. My favorite thing about these little guys is that they will never shrivel and die on me! With such a busy schedule I need all of the help I can get.
Stay tuned for more projects we will be making with these little paper succulent plants for fall décor in the next few months. You can download the template in both PDF patterns or an SVG cutting machine file at the end of this post. Enjoy! ~ Lia

I cannot seem to get the grey succulent to look right. If I slide all the leaves under the wire fold, they all stack up on each other in a row but yours in the photo looks nice and spread out. Should I be turning each one somehow? I tried to do that but didn’t seem to work either. Appreciate some tips! thanks
Yes! You want to stagger each layer so they’re not all lined up.
I’m new to using a cutting machine.I have a brother scan and cut am I able to use the SVG file in my machine?
Hi Myra! Yes our SVG files are compatible with the Scan N Cut.
where do you find the paper for the succulants
There’s a link in the post to the paper stack available from My Mind’s Eye 🙂
I’m sorry if this seems obvious but how would I go about using the PDF file to hand cut the templates?
Hi Valerie! You can place the template over the paper you’re using to make the succulents, then cut it out. Or, you can cut the shape out from the template, place it over the paper and then trace it. OR, you can print the template directly on the paper you’re using, if it’s 8.5×11 🙂
I was searching for a printable set of directions for the seven Succulents. The tutorial is great, but I would like a printed version. Is this available?
Hi Ruth, we don’t have printable directions for some of our older posts (like this one). We’re working on updating them as we can! In the meantime, you can save the photo tutorial image that print that for reference.

What type of paper do you use for these and what weight? Thank you!!
Look for “Shop this project” at the end of the post– there’s a link to the exact paper used in the kit. But of course, you can use whatever colors inspire you!
I am confused…the SVG templates look much smaller than those in the PDF version. How do I know what size to make them?
When you upload the file into Design Space, they should be the correct size (we just checked!)
Does this pattern work with felt? I’m wanting to make felt succulents for a party, but I want to be sure the pattern will work before I buy!
We actually have a few felt succulent patterns on our site! Here are the links to those projects 🙂
how do you get a card stock
We find ours at our local craft stores and also online at paper-papers.com!
Love these little succulents, would LOVE to see a paper air plant design as well!
That’s a great idea! I’ll add it to our idea board 🙂
[…] tutorial com fotos está disponível em Lia Griffith, mas os moldes somente comprando pela Amazon. Então confere lá porque acho que dá pra fazer só […]

What gauge of floral wire do you use to make the flowers? I am struggling to find the right thickness!
I really like 18 gauge. You can find it at Amazon in tubes.
Does it have to be 18 gauge?
We would recommend at least 18 gauge to help with stability.
So much fun! I made a few of the new shapes and tucked them into my existing wreath! I love the floral wire as a base too! They are a wee bit addicting! Thank you once again!
Great idea! Yes, the wire is helpful and we find that it makes it easy to move them around when we need them for another project. 😉
I’m new to Cricuit. I have the Cricut Explorer Air. Do I open the Cricut Design Space and grab your svg file after download? Then it will let me separate the individual succulent to be printed in different color?
Yes, it will let you cut in different colors. Here is a link to a video showing how to upload it https://liagriffith.com/cricut-explore-uploading-a-jpg-or-svg-file/
Will you ever have the PDFs for the succulents as a free download?
Probably not:( It is one of our most popular patterns and is selling on sites Etsy and Design Space for around $5 for one pattern.
These are fantastic, can the files be used with the cricut explore ?
Yes, the SVG files are ready for you to upload into the machine.
How do I shop this post? The link seems broken? Just want to know where you got the paper. Soooo pretty! Love your style and presentation! Thanks for the creative inspiration!
There is a My Mind’s Eye text link that will take you to the paper kit.
Hi Lia will the cut files for the three new succulents be available on Cricut Design Space….thanks 🙂
No, they are ALL available right here on the site. Yay!! They are on the centerpiece post and I will add them to this one too.
