I created this floral alphabet around eight years ago to sell papercuts of the letters on my website: I hand-drew all of the fall botanical elements, the flowers, leaves, and berries. Then, I carefully digitized them all before creating the entire floral alphabet in Illustrator.
I didn’t have an iPad at the time, so it was a labour-intensive and time-consuming process. But I was really pleased with the end result.
At that time, it was in the days before I had a Cricut machine. I was creating papercuts by hand, and these floral alphabet letters took AGES to cut.
As a result, the time it took to hand-cut each letter just wasn’t reflected in the price that I could sell them for. So, as a result, I took them down from my shop and stopped selling them.

A Free Floral Alphabet to Download and Use
As a result, my floral alphabet has been sitting in a folder on the desktop for such a long time now.
My lovely friend Sarah — who writes over at the blog Extraordinary Chaos — has been trying to persuade me to resurrect them. To put the SVG and PNG files on my site for people to download and use these uppercase floral letters in their craft projects.
I dug my heels in for ages — I genuinely don’t know why I didn’t want to. I guess the thought of something that took me hours to design just being given away didn’t feel great. But — equally — my floral alphabet letters are sitting in a folder on my computer, doing nothing. So I’ve finally come to the conclusion that to give the away as a free font download to other crafters who will enjoy them — and use them — is better than the work ultimately going to waste!
So here they are.
Ideas to Make with this Fall Floral Alphabet
There are so many craft and home decor projects you can use these fall floral alphabet font SVG and PNG files for.
Use a Cricut to cut the letters out of vinyl and decorate anything from a mug to a sweatshirt.
- Pop a punchy background pattern or a bold color behind it.
- Instead of printing the files in black — you can even add a pattern in Cricut design space and print it.
- Or cut it out of patterned vinyl.
- Use the capital letter of your name as a monogram on a t-shirt.
And if you don’t have a Cricut, you can do as I did for such a long time and cut a letter out by hand. Then, pop it in a frame.
Double glass frames work beautifully with these letters.
Simply sandwich your papercut between the two sheets of glass and enjoy the shadows that the floral letter casts on the wall behind.
