    I would like to make these for my mom. Her favorite color rose is yellow. How would you suggest I make yellow roses? She also lives on the other side of the country from me, what is the best way to package and send them through the mail?

    Thank you

      I would use the vanilla + chiffon double sided crepe paper. https://feltpaperscissors.com/product/lia-griffith-crepe-paper-double-sided-vanilla-chiffon/
      If you want to enhance the yellow, you can add some blending of yellow pan pastel. https://feltpaperscissors.com/product/panpastel-artist-pastel-dairylide-yellow-250-5/

      To mail paper flowers, you can secure them into a hand tied arrangement. I would then face all of flowers forward and secure them to the base of the box with a wire then close up the box so nothing will touch the flowers. Only air. Let me know how it goes.

    I would love to see asiatic lilies with the roses for a bridal bouquet, along with some gypsophlia for background

      We do have many lily templates, this being my favorite which you can make into an asiatic with color. https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-easter-lily/
      As for babies’ breath, we have yet to jump into making that filler. 😉

    Loved the tutorial. Made my first rose and everyone was impressed at how realistic it looks. Want to make them in different colors. I have a large rose garden (27 varieties) looking forward to spring so I can try to make them all…
    Thanks Lia

    Hi!
    Are the foam ball in the Rose kit the same size as the ones you use in the video? When I stretch the crepe paper is distorts the petal.

      @Zevada

      Hi! Yes, I use the materials from the kit in the video. You might be over stretching– are you part of our private Facebook group for members? If so, you can upload a photo there for advice. Or you can email it to us at hello@liagriffith.com and we can give more tips.

    This is gorgeous.

    When wrapping the stems with crepe paper, how much do you stretch the paper?

    Reply
    1. Lia April 13, 2021 at 10:25pm
      @Kristin

      I like to stretch mine almost to the smooth point. It takes a little practice. 😉 This is by far my favorite version of this rose.

    I don’t have the maker so I will be cutting them all out by hand. Wish me luck haven’t done crepe paper flowers yet. I am sure they won’t turn out as beautiful as yours but I will keep working on them. Thank you for the video and the information.

      We still cut most of our flowers by hand! You will do great, and I’m sure they will be beautiful.

    Hi Lia,
    I really enjoyed the class video and I’m preparing to cut the pieces on the Cricut this afternoon. Extra-fine crepe paper has cut beautifully using the cotton setting, green mat, rotary blade and default pressure. Is Double-sided crepe paper done the same but using the Denim setting? Any recommendations?

    Reply
    1. Lia April 7, 2021 at 1:56pm
      @Marion

      Yes, we find that setting works best, but then suggest doing a quick test cut since the software does change. If you have not yet, be sure and watch the video here in the Craft Academy in the Mini Courses section on cutting crepe paper. I know it is a bit scary the first time. 😉
