Three Paper Flowers – Silhouette Cameo Freebies

One of my first Silhouette projects, way back in Spring or Summer of 2015, was a roses shadowbox. This is a common use for Silhouette machines- rolled flowers, that is. They’re easy enough and lovely enough that the work vs reward comes out heavily on the side of reward.

PaperRosesShadowbox

I designed those roses myself, because I have to do everything myself, and I’m glad I did. When I sat down this week to create two new styles of roses, it was fast and easy- I just had to create the shapes of the petals, really. After that step, the rest is all the same! Maybe I’ll do a video tutorial soon on how to make them in Illustrator.

The roses inside the black shadowbox as well as the ones inside the white shadowbox in these photos are pretty easy. You cut them, start at the smallest petal and roll the flower around something round and small (think a pencil), then, once you’ve wound all the way in, you slide the item you rolled around out and let the flowers unfurl and fill out a bit. Then you adhere them to the round bottom piece with your favorite adhesive (I’ve used a few glues, so far Elmer’s paper glue has been my favorite though it takes the longest to dry, hot glue gun for me was kind of messy).

The third flower, however, is a little more delicate. It doesn’t have as thick of a base so you’ll need to go slowly. The finished product, though, is my favorite.

I feel it is the most rose-like and has the loveliest petals.

But we don’t really have to choose, do we?

About EchoStenger.com

EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.

It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.

Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.

I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.

I. Love. Air conditioning.

Fiona Apple.

Angel : My seraph son. I’ll likely speak of nothing and no one so much. Born October 2009. He likes the color orange blue and almost anything Marvel.

Veda : Black. Lab-like. Born Summer 2008. A life changer. Full name and title: Princess Darth Veda Jane Sultanfuss Stenger. Usually just Veda/Veda Jane when she’s bad. Also ‘Monster’. In your way? Just say, 'Scoot, Veda.'

Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.

Li : Dog cat. Scarier than both the dogs put together.
