DIY Tissue Paper Anemone + Tutorial

DIY Tissue Paper Anemone Bouquet It is funday Monday and time for a new paper flower! Anemone flowers come in many colors and the wedding favorites are the creamy white and pale pinks. Though for my paper bouquet today I used this single bloom, I am looking forward to mixing these pretty blooms with some other paper flowers. You may remember my paper anemone tutorial from last year where I printed the watercolor pattern onto a text weight paper. These are still some of my favorite paper flowers that I have designed, and today I am sharing another version and method for the gorgeous blooms. These are made entirely from tissue paper which give a delicate finish and a bit of transparency to the petals.

DIY Tissue Paper Amemone Blooms For my flowers I used a cream tissue, a pale pink and then made a few flowers using bleached pink tissue to add a little variety in color. This bleach method is something I learned from the master of tissue flowers, Livia Cetti in her new book, The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers. Livia has a very different version of the paper anemone in this book that you may also enjoy making. You can also view her classes and mine at Creativebug. For my other materials I used an 18 gage floral wire, green floral tape and 1 inch foam balls. My tools are scissors, pinking sheers, wire cutters, glue gun and a craft knife. You will find my step-by-step tutorial below as well as a printable pattern. Enjoy! ~ Lia

  1. Hello! I’m getting married in June and want to carry a big paper flower instead of a bouquet. This is exactly what I was looking for. I´ll just make them a lot bigger!!! Thank you so much!!!! You´re helping me make one of my wedding dreams come true!!!

  2. I can certainly see why you have so many appreciative readers/followers. Another excellent flower craft. Haven’t made them yet but think I might like the tissue paper anemones, so light and pretty. I’ll be in rummaging in all my tissue paper stash, at least tissue paper is affordable, to give these a try. Now I hope I have 1 inch. foam balls.
    Thank you so much for sharing this revised version of anemones. Your mind must be going all the time to continually come up with incredible projects. Your talents are never ending, I hope.

    • Tissue flowers are new for me and I will be making them every three weeks for a while. If you don’t have a 1 inch foam ball try rolling tissue into a ball, flattening it a tad and using that. You just need a form to cover.

  3. Thank you!!! They are wonderful!!!

  4. O I am so happy to see your site, do you do Christmas flowers , + add to homemade wreaths
    , I would love to make gifts for Christmas, also 1 question , is the tissue paper good to use on ogrami ( spell check) I wanted to make Christmas snow flakes & stars, went to hobby lobby , was no paper there , I hope you have time to answer , I bet you are asked many questions, so if you doiont answer , I will understand. I am gonna make some of these flowers , TY

    • Tissue is a bit light for origami, I don’t think it would hold. But you can use any simple light weight paper that has more thickness than that. If you look under the Holiday tab and click on Christmas, you will see a few flowers and wreaths.

  5. You’ve got me hooked! If I didn’t need a paycheck,
    I’d be at home everyday making all the beautiful paper flowers you’ve been sharing lately. My resolution for the second half of 2014 is to make all of them. Thank you sooo much for sharing these tutorials!
