Learn how to make an easy paper vase to display a paper flower or paper succulent!

3D papercrafts are one of my very favorite things to make. I’m always amazed you can take a simple, flat piece of paper or cardstock and turn it into something with form, function, and beauty! Today’s paper vase project is the perfect example of this. And what a fun way to show off all of that pretty cardstock you have. You can make this easy paper vase as part of our MAKE IT EASY Craftalong Challenge, filled with fun and EASY daily themed projects! Get the free SVG cut file for this project

We designed two different sizes for paper vase for you to make, and you’ll be amazed at how easy and fun these are!

Learn how to make two beautiful vases using your Cricut or other cutting machine from cardstock.



First, download Design #199 - my free printable PDF pattern or SVG cut files or PDF from my free resource library


If you're going to cut this paper vase out by hand, use the printable PDF, cut out the pattern, trace it onto your paper, and cut it out.

If you're going to use a Cricut cutting machine to cut this paper vase, upload my free paper vase SVG into Cricut Design Space. This is what the file looks like when placed in Design Space.

Tip: If you're not sure how to upload an SVG cut file to Cricut Design Space, watch this helpful video training series I made. If you're on an iPhone or iPad, here's how to download and upload SVG files to the Cricut Design Space app.

Adjust the size if you want to make smaller vases. Next, you will want to change the interior lines for each vase to score lines. Ungroup the layers, select the layer with the interior lines then under Linetype, change cut to score.

Need help with the scoring lines? Check out my tutorial on Cricut Scoring, Grouping, and Attaching!

Once you have changed cut lines to score, you are now ready to "make it." I placed my cardstock on the Cricut LightGrip cutting mat and selected medium cardstock for my material.


Grab your cut vase pieces and E-Z Runner Adhesive. You can use glue instead of the double-sided adhesive. I like the adhesive because there is no drying time.

Both vases are assembled the same way. Begin by folding on each score line.

Begin folding the paper vase on each score line

Once all the score lines have been folded, begin applying adhesive/glue on the flaps.

Glue each tab to the edge of the preceding flap.


You have just made an easy paper vase!

Why not put some pretty paper flowers in it?
