DIY Unicorn with Flowers Framed Art – Cute & Easy!
STEP 1: GET MY FREE PERSONALIZED UNICORN WITH FLOWERS FRAMED ART SVG FILE
First, download Design #271 which is my free personalized Unicorn With Flowers Framed Art SVG/DXF/PDF from my free resource library (get the password to the library in the form at the bottom of this post). If you're going to cut it on your cutting machine, upload the file to your design software. This is what the personalized Unicorn Frame SVG file looks like in Cricut 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.
STEP 2: CUT THE DESIGN
Before cutting the design, you will want to measure the width and height of your frame and adjust the size of the design if needed. If you are using the same frame listed in my project supplies you do not need to make any size adjustments.
When cutting the design, I used the glitter vinyl material setting for the black, gold, and pink vinyl cuts. Make sure to change the material selection before cutting the vinyl and the cardstock.
Weed your vinyl pieces and use Cricut StrongGrip Transfer Tape. Cut all your vinyl pieces as close to the edges as possible. Gather your cut out rose pieces and a pen or cylindrical rod.
STEP 3: ASSEMBLE THE UNICORN FRAME
Take a pen or cylindrical rod and begin to roll the rose petals over the rod to curl them. You can also do this step after the flower is rolled if you prefer.
Once your petals are curled, put the loose end of your flower pattern in the slot in the tip of your quilling tool and being rolling toward you. If you do not have a quilling tool, you can use long-nose pliers or tweezers. You can also make your own DIY quilling tool.
Continue rolling your paper, keeping the bottom edges aligned with one another as best you can.
Once the rose if rolled the way you like, add glue on the bottom of the rolled rose.
Fold the circular tab over the glue. I used the tip of my hot glue gun to hold the tab over the glue. No one wants burnt fingers. Repeat this process to assemble all the roses. You do not have to use hot glue, it was just what I preferred to use for this project.
Open the back of your frame and remove the foam insert.
Next, cut your piece of foam core to the same size as this insert.
Find the center of your foam core and measure approximately one inch from the top. This is where we will place the top of the unicorn horn.
IMPORTANT! Before laying down any of the vinyl pieces it is very important to cut as close to the design as possible to reduct the amount of transfer tape that will touch the foam core. Next you will want to repeatedly slap each piece of vinyl on your skin (or a cloth) prior to laying it on the foam core. This is so the transfer tape does not rip your foam core.
Lay the unicorn horn down and use a scraper over the vinyl. Avoid scraping the transfer tape as much as possible.
Slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape from the unicorn horn.
Fold the vinyl in half for the ears to find the center point. Align the ears just below the unicorn horn.
Remember to remove the tackiness of the transfer tape before laying the vinyl on the foam core.
Slowly peel back the backing of the vinyl and add the ears. Carefully remove the transfer tape from the ears.
Eyeball placement of the pink inner part of the ear. Remove the backing and transfer tape from the vinyl.
Measure approximately 3 1/2" from the bottom of the unicorn horn for placement of the eyelashes. Again, cut as close to the design as possible, remove the tackiness of the vinyl and apply to your foam core board.
The last piece of vinyl to add is the name. I eyeballed the placement of Alexa and applied it to my foam core board for the personalized unicorn frame. Once you have all the vinyl applied its time to add the roses. You can add them any way you want or refer to my finished design for placement. I used hot glue to place the roses on the foam core board.
Clean the glass of your frame.
Add your foamcore board in the frame, put the frame back on and you have finished your personalized unicorn frame.
This is what my finished personalized unicorn frame looks like.

How To Make Paper Flowers
Show Some Love!
Jump to How-ToOn the hunt for a perfect paper flower tutorial for giant flowers resulted in less than awesome results. So I came up with my own and I’m in love with this easy step-by-step paper flower tutorial.
It has been oh so long since I have done any paper crafting. I wanted to do my youngest bedroom in a unicorn theme, but I also wanted to do it on a budget. I thought giant paper flowers were perfect, but I needed to teach myself how to make paper flowers first.
So I went on the search for a flower template and I had an idea in my head of what I wanted and couldn’t find it. So I gave making my own template a shot. And my large paper flower came out beautifully!
The first one was so perfect, I ended up making about 5 before I even realized what I was doing was making more giant paper flowers than I really needed. LOL!
And, if you were to mix in some gigantic flower made of paper and some smaller flowers, well, you’ve got yourself a regular wall mural happening in just a few minutes.
Seriously, these DIY giant paper flowers were really simple to do using my Cricut cutting machine, but hand cutting wouldn’t be bad. Next, I will be trying a paper rose, I just have to figure out where it will go.
Because you are using card stock for these DIY paper flowers, they will be much sturdier than the crepe paper or tissue paper flowers you might have made as a kid.
But you can use them to decorate in the same ways. When I was little girl, I like to have them just to play with, but they fell apart so easily! I’m glad that these I’m making now are so much more sturdy because they’ll last a bit longer and be more loved.
I have provided you with both the cut files, template and tutorial video that will help you learn how I curl the edges and also how to put the flowers together.
Once you figure out the pattern, though, it’s super intuitive. You can almost make a flower without even thinking about it.
What paper is used for paper flowers?
I like to use a medium weight cardstock although you can use just about any type of paper as long as its thick. I prefer to use paper of the same weight you use for things like cards, boxes, scrapbooking and other paper crafts. Now, just so you know if you are making smaller flowers you can use a lighter weight paper.
Then, for the center of the flower, you can pretty much use anything–I thought these pretty foil paper bursts were perfect because the went so well with the unicorn, but you can do just about anything. Don’t worry about those falling over as much because they’re really small and supported by the petals all around them. Just hot glue it in the middle and get it tucked in nicely.
With a smaller flower, you can use a quilling tool to help make the petals curl, but with the larger flowers, you’ll need to do it the way I show you in the video.
What kinds of things can you use Cricut flowers for?
These flowers can be used for a ton of different things from wedding decorations to home decor. Some of my favorite ideas for decorating with paper flowers include:
- non-traditional wedding bouquet
- wall decor
- cake toppers
- party decorations
- and so much more
Just let your imagination run wild with the things you can do with these amazing beauties! The look on my daughter’s face when she saw her unicorn flower was priceless! I am always happy to make her happy and the fact that I have the knowledge and the skill to use my Cricut to make these amazing creations makes it even better.
And once you get the hang of how to make large paper flowers, you can seriously make them in just a few minutes.
So, it’s totally worth it to make these flowers and then get that big blooming smile–it’s like two ways to brighten your day in one project. So cool.
And the fact that I can make ’em fast with my Cricut? Well, that puts a smile on my face, for sure.
But, like I said before, you can make these by hand, or you can make them with your Cricut, which is going to be a lot faster, in my humble opinion.
If you don’t have a Cricut and love to craft, I strongly suggest you get one. I have been a user of Provo craft (the parent company of Cricut) since the very beginning when they were first introduced. My first Cricut was the small little 6 inch and I now have the Cricut explore one and I have the Cricut maker coming. It’s a veritable Cricut-farm in my house!
My T-shirt business was solely created using the Cricut, the first t-shirt order, I was still using an iron to press my design! And now I am receiving large volume requests and I can bang them out in just a few minutes with my handy Cricut Design Space and some vinyl.
Looking for more great Cricut crafts?
I really enjoy using my Cricut. So much so that I’ve already made plans to get a second one (you know, the Cricut Maker–the one that can cut wood!). Just perfect for all sorts of crafting and I can’t tell you how easy it is to use. So, rather than telling you how easy it is, how about I just show you some of the best tutorials for Cricut projects I’ve got!

Unicorn paper flowers
If you haven’t gotten down and crafty yet this year, now is the perfect time to start. For our second week celebrating National Papercrafting Month, we created this beautiful, large scale, floral wall décor and are giving you our Cricut Design Space™ file, FREE, to recreate this very same project at home!
(Click on the individual images for a closer look!)
In order to keep things simple, we manipulated shapes from just one of our Cricut® collections, Flower Market, while designing our arrangement. If you don’t own the Cricut® Flower Market Collection, contact your Close To My Heart Consultant (or find one near you, here) to get started.
To give you an idea of the physical size of this project, the center French Vanilla flower is 20″ in diameter, both Peach flowers are 17″, the Lilac flowers are 14″, and the smaller Mint flowers are 13½” each.
When you open the file in Design Space, you will find some hexagon shapes among the petal shapes. These are your bases for each of the flowers. Attach the petals of each flower, layering them from largest to smallest, to these bases. You will also notice that the eyelashes are quite large. They are so large, in fact, that when you attempt to “make it” the program will tell you that you need a 12″ x 24″ mat. We did not use a longer mat to cut these, so there is a way around it! When the prompt comes up, all you need to do is select the image and rotate it to make it fit diagonally in the 12″ x 12″ square.
We don’t want any of our readers to feel left out, so for those of you who do not use Cricut®, a few months ago, our very own Jill Broadbent visited Studio5 and shared how to make similar large paper flowers without a cutting machine.

I could not wait to be slow. But then Kira came up to me, hugged me around the waist and drew me closer to her body. I was taken aback. The murmur of Kira flew to me, and she said: - finally.

Sure. Of course I promise, Aunt Rimma. I looked at Aunt Rimma and noticed a certain playfulness in her eyes: I also stood up with everyone and raised my glass.
