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

Paper Anemone Tutorial PinkAnemoneButton

  1. This is a great tutorial and the flower was so easy to make. Thank you! I need to make white anemones with black center for a wedding and was wondering if you had a file with just the shapes that I could use in my silhouette? TIA!!

    • Hi Joy, Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Love anemones at weddings! Unfortunately I made this pattern before I got my Cricut Explorer so I didn’t make a svg file I handcut mine. Sorry!

  2. Thanks !!!!

  3. Merci et bravo pour ce joli tutorial !

  4. Hi, I’m in love with your flowers. What kind of paper did you use for the Anemones ? Thanks

    • I printed onto a regular printer paper with a laser printer on both sides. My printable pattern includes the color washed pink and black. I try to make it super easy for you. ;-)

  5. Thanks so much Lia, the template and how to are so clear and helpful. No matter how many of your flowers I will make I try to follow your steps the way you show them. I tend to get impatient and skip steps but not with your excellent instructions so they’ll turn out nicely. Great tutorials and templates on all your flowers and other posts, Now on to more of your breath taking flowers.

  6. Thank you so much for these amazing paper flower tutorials! I have so far tried the roses, gardenia, orchid and apple blossoms and these anemones!! I printed them on Vellum paper and made 1 anemone so far. It is so delicate and beautiful, and the slight transparency of the vellum makes the petals extra beautiful! :))

  7. 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,
    stephie

    • 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 worked.so your email must have done the trick!
        I am so thrilled with your tutorials and the beautiful flowers – I’ve made several of them. the roses and gardenias I especially love!and I will be making the feathers, too…
        kindest regards, stephanie
