3D Curled Flower- Free SVG

Effective Spet 30, 2011 - This item is no longer available as a freebie. Please visit My Etsy Shop, where you will find it available in a 3D Curling Flower Kit. Thanks! :0)

Hi, again!
Here's a little Saturday freebie for you! :0) I have been playing around with this file for quite some time, and I finally am happy with it. I have seen many versions of curled 3D flowers, recently, and here's mine, inspired by the Spellbinders dies. (I love my Spellbinders, but sometimes it's nice to pull out the cutting machine and cut....especially for bulk quantities of things like this!)
3D Curled Flower SVG
This is part of the 3D Curled Flowers SVG Collection
These SVG files are no longer available for free.
Please visit my SVG's for Sale Page located at the top of this blog.


The file includes an instruction diagram with simple instructions and glue suggestions on one sheet. It looks like this

If you cut the file as it is sized for the SVG in the download it will create the size finished flower shown above in my photo. If you shrink the SVG down a little, you could have a smaller flower...of course, you can make it larger, too!

To create the flower, start at the outside piece, marked in the photo, and roll the paper onto itself. When rolling it, try to keep the straight edge lined up as you go along.
You can use tweezers, a stylus, a pen.....or anything similar, to help you roll the paper, if you choose. You may also add glitter, ink the edges or curl the edges, ....either before or after rolling the paper, to add some variation. You could also run the svg cut through an embossing folder before rolling it (I like to use my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on flowers...so pretty!) So many things you can do with this!

Once your paper is rolled, let the paper "log" loosen up a bit, so it has the appearance of the above photo, or similar, to your liking. Add a small drop of glue to the end of the roll, and adhere it to the back side of the petal it is up against. TIP: You may want to use a small drop of clear-drying glue in the center of the flower when you start the rolling, as well. This may help keep the flowers shape better. I did not do that for the pictured flower, but for a tighter layered flower, I definitely would have.

Have fun! Please let me know if you have any questions about my instructions! I'm going to work on a few more petal designs for this, so check back to my blog later for that, and for other freebies! :0)
