paper flower graduation cap

Choose a graduation sticker, add it to your graduation cap and then embellish the rest of your hat with paper flowers!
Step 1

Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: If you want to make any changes to the design, such as sizing, click ‘Customize’ at the bottom of the screen and it will move the design into your canvas. Use the edit tools in the tool bar and then click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 2

Click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.
TIP: If you want multiple cuts of your design, before you click ‘Continue’, change the quantity in the upper left corner of your screen.

Step 3

Place a piece of cardstock onto your cutting mat, select your material and load your mat into your Cricut® machine.

Step 4

When your machine is done cutting from your cardstock, unload your mat and gently remove the cardstock. Remove any pieces left around or within the cutout and discard. Add your next color, as indicated in the review panel on the left of your screen, re-load the mat and click the blinking icon. Repeat for each color/layer.

Step 5

Start from the outside and roll the paper until you get to the circular center. Add hot glue to the circle and push into the coiled bottom to hold your flower together.

Step 6

Repeat Steps 3-5 for as many flowers as you want for your graduation cap.

Step 7

Add the graduation sticker to your cap first; then hot glue your paper flowers.

Step 8

Start in the corner and glue your paper flowers so they fit tightly against each other until you reach the words. If desired, start to scatter the last few flowers.

Step 9
Wrap your tassel around the button on the center of your graduation cap!
