Easy Paper Vases — Decorate Your Desk and Shelves

Instructions

STEP 1: GET MY FREE PAPER VASE FILE

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

STEP 2: CUT YOUR PAPER VASE PIECES

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.

STEP 3: ASSEMBLE THE PAPER VASES

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.

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.

STEP 4: SHOW IT OFF

You have just made an easy paper vase!

Why not put some pretty paper flowers in it?
