DIY Paper Flower: Anemone

IMG_0458 Paper Anemone Flowers PaperAnemone PaperAnemoneWeddingBouquet AnemoneBouquet Hello everyone! I am going to be sharing some of my favorite paper flowers that I created in the last year for another site onto this blog in addition to adding a new paper flower printable and tutorial every month. The anemone is my favorite flower I have made up to now. The funny thing is . . . it seems that every new flower becomes my favorite. Does this mean they just keep getting better? I am fine tuning my paper flower skills. The anemone, as odd as the name sounds, is a lovely delicate flower that has become a bridal bouquet favorite. They come in many colors, the pale pink and white being the most common for weddings as the delicate petals and the black centers mirror the wedding gown and tuxedo. I see many people call it a poppy which makes me wonder if they might be related somehow. I will have to Google that one. Below is my tutorial on how to make this lovely bloom and you can find the PDF download at the end of this post. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. hello lia!
    thank you very much for posting your absolutely lovely flowers & templates, that’s very generous of you!
    I would so love to make the anemones, but unfortunately can’t print the template. I was able to print the tulips, but sadly not the anemones, so I’m not sure whether that has to do with my computer or not – have you any idea?? please advise! thank you –
    all the best, warm regards,

    • Did you download the template onto your computer first them open the PDF in Acrobat? I think that will do the trick. If not let me know and we will figure it out.

      • thank you, lia, for your response. yes, I had downloaded it onto my computer first etc, but until today it hadn’t your email must have done the trick!
