Some of you may remember this hellebore we made for one of our previous Member Make workshops. But as you know, we are always experimenting and reinventing how we make flowers! For this month’s workshop, we will be showing you how to combine two different types of paper to make a crepe paper and frosted paper hellebore.
As always, you can get ready for the workshop ahead of time by grabbing the supplies you need from our list below. Then join our YouTube Live on December 23rd at 11:00 am PT , or you can watch the video recording later.
The hellebore is one of our favorite winter flowers to craft. For this updated version, we used our double-sided white for the petals, the lightest white gold frosted paper in our metallic golds pack and our extra-fine crepe paper in fern for the centers, and our extra-fine in juniper for the leaves.
We are mixing in the frosted paper to add more detail and structure to these small flowers. And we are also adding color by using PanPastel on the petals and a brush marker on the centers.
If you haven’t joined one of our live workshops before, make sure to read the steps below. Otherwise you can skip on down to the tools and materials list.

Hi, the buds are not included in the SVG file. Can you update it pls.
Yes, the Cricut update seems to have caused a need for a workaround of some of the SVG files.
Is there a photo tutorial for this flower?
There is not a photo tutorial for this one. Just the video.
Can I use the cricut joy?
For the inside pieces that are frosted paper, you can use the fine point blade. The crepe paper can only be cut with the rotary blade which is unique to the Maker. Here is a video if you want to see more. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/cutting-machines-for-crepe-paper/
Hi my printer broke so I bought a new one and the flower patterns I am printing with the new printer are coming out bigger than the previous ones I printed the question I am asking should they be printed landscape or portrait. Thanks Jane kubon
When you have the PDF window open be sure that you click the option to print at full size or 100%. This will give you the correct size. The landscape or portrait option will depend on the template but you can see in your PDF image which way it is set.
Am I missing the written directions? Are there any available or do you have to watch the video. I enjoy having both.
Hi Libby, we do not have a written tutorial for this flower, though most we do try to do that.
I used the Cardstock (for intricate cuts) and the green mat to cut out the metallic paper. Worked great. Hope that might help someone struggling to get these cut.
I personally do not prefer card stock as it looks a bit stiff. I have great luck cutting the premium gold paper from the pack listed, even better than the card stock paper. But, I am happy you found a solution.
Oh. I’m sorry. Please don’t bother then. I’m surely a tiny minority in that I like to move the pieces, sometimes to fit an odd scrap of crepe I want to use up. But all is fine as it is. I just thought it had been an oversight–that you had disconnected the petals and forgot the leaves. Thank you for explaining.
I always try to make it the easiest possible for you all but yes, some need different solutions. 🙂
Thank you Lia and team ❤
They are so beautiful. I made seven of the hellebore plants to give to my neighbors as ours tradicional Christmas gifts in the circle neighborhood.
They all love it.
That is so beautiful! I am sure they were surprised by a handmade gift!
Thank you, Lia. I have downloaded it again. The petals are indeed able to be moved around now, but the leaves are still connected. Would be possible to ‘un-attach’ those as well? Am I the only one who prefers the SVGs this way? 🙁
I guess I could go back and do it again. When Cricut software is working well having them grouped like this is best otherwise you will have to take time to rearrange every piece so there is no wasted paper. Cricut spreads it out a lot. So, I create these SVG for you just as I use it on my machine.
Hi, I have not received an e-mail link to the video tutorial. I also cannot find video tutorial when logged into site as member. The link that I was e-mailed before the video went live will not allow me to play. Can you help?
Hi Julie! We just uploaded the video recording to the post! You can find it here: https://liagriffith.com/crepe-frosted-paper-hellebore/
I can’t connect to the YouTube Live. Can’t the link!
Hi Marion! We emailed it out and it’s on our Facebook page. You can also find it linked at the top of our craft collection page here: https://liagriffith.com/2021-december-craft-collection/. If you don’t see it in one of those places, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s a private link so we can’t post it here.
Hello. I am precutting the pieces for this Hellebore Member Make. I wonder if I did something wrong when I downloaded the SVG files. Both the bud petals and the leaves are connected, and I cannot figure out how to get them apart. I want to organize them for minimal waste of paper and to cut only the number I want–such as fewer buds than flowers. How can I disconnect them? Ty.
Hi Mardi! I had updated the file a few days ago where they were not attached so you can download it again and it should work.
Thanks for having this month’s member make on my birthday!
So happy to celebrate with you!!
In reference to my earlier post, the small petals are also affected. Though the SVG file looks fine on a computer display, the small and large petals slightly overlap each other.
See if the ungrouped update takes care of this issue. Again, Cricut quirk as they looked fine for me.
Hi, there seems to be a problem with the SVG file for the petals. On the larger petals, they are too close and instead of the sides being smooth, it’s like a small crescent moon is cut out on the right and left side. There is no problems with the smalls petals. The row of petals are grouped together, so I can’t separate them to move them farther apart.
Hello Kathy. I just check the file both in my software then in the Design Space. This is a Cricut error, which happens sometimes. Mine looked fine in both places except it overlapped the text directions onto the templates. So, the workaround for you is that I ungrouped the petals so you can move them around. See you Thursday!
I am so excited to take the Hellebore. I have also got together all supplies to make the paper snow stars and also the dried flower wreath. Thank you so very much for these wonderful, relaxing classes. I was also wondering if your daughter could show us what her paper dolls look like. I am so interested. Thank you dearly and have the most wonderful holidays ahead.
Thank you, Debra! We are so happy you are here! Here is one of Emily’s newest paper dolls and there will be more coming. https://liagriffith.com/paper-doll-alyssa/
Hello Lia, I’m really in love with this beautiful hellebore flower, thank you so much for this! Here in Germany it is’nt easy, to get such nice crepe paper colours, wich you are using, especially those natural green tones. I wish you a wonderful creative Advent Season and warm wishes from Monika.
Thank you, Monika! It is odd since our crepe paper is made there in Germany. Unfortunately, the factory feels that the crepe and colors we chose for our collection are not of interest to crafters in Europe. Such a shame. I hope we can offer a better way to sell it there very soon. Happy Holidays to you as well!
I am so excited to make this one! It is one of my favorites. Do you remember where you purchased those two pink vases you used in a few of the pictures? Those are so adorable and perfect for many flowers! Love that color.
We love those vases too and wish we had a source for you. Both are a few years old, one was from West Elm which they don’t carry anymore, and the other from our local floral wholesale house. See you at the Member Make!
Thank you for giving us both a colored and a non-colored version of the PDF! So helpful. ♥ It doesn’t list it on the PDF, but I’m assuming based on the photos that the flower center strip for the nectaries is cut from the Fern color in extra-fine crepe?
Yes, that is correct. I will go back in and add that to the PDF. 😉
Is there a bundle for this class?
Hi Sandy! We are planning to put a bundle together as soon as the frosted gold paper is back in stock — hopefully sometime next week! We’ll announce it on Facebook and in an email once it’s available.
Hi there, your metallic golds paper is sold out on Felt Paper Scissors … any suggested substitutes? Or, do you think it’ll be re-stocked soon?
This will be restocked this week! Our shop sale was better than we expected. 😉
