Ready for Member Make? This is Meagan’s last live workshop before she goes on maternity leave, and we can’t wait for her to show us how to make these crepe paper agapanthus flowers.
To get prepared for our live workshop on August 20th, check out our tools and materials list below.
Fall in love with flower-making
This flower name combines two Greek words — agape and anthos — meaning love and flower. Perfect for all of us flower lovers! While agapanthus typically blooms in purple or blue shades, they can also come in white. We chose our double-sided white crepe paper to match our color palette for the month, but you can always make your crepe paper agapanthus in any color you like.
Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced due to the small petals and intricate gluing involved.
Crafting tips: We highly recommend cutting petals and stamen on your Maker or Cameo 4 due to the small size and shape of this flower.

I had a little time on my hands during the Master Frosted Paper class. all caught up so I thought I would try this. The flowers are beautiful and had a ball making them while watching the video. I had one problem though. I could not find it in writing how many flowers and how many bulbs. Yes it was in the video. But when I went to look at the picture tutorial it is not there. Unless I am blind. I have been called worst. LOL Well thanks for listening. I will post the pictures tomorrow for your viewing pleasure. Please let me know what you think of them and please point out my mistakes. Can not learn the correct way if no one tells me what I have done wrong. Thanks for listening to me.
almost forgot…. is there a hash tag in order to let you know that I would like you to look at it?
Hi! That information is included on the PDF template– 25 blooms and 9 buds per flower. You can post a photo with #MemberMake 🙂
Thank you whenever we ask you something or got a problem you always answer so quickly I just wanted to let you no that it’s very much appreciated by me it shows how good the all operation is and run by very nice very professional people many thanks Jane kubon uk.
Thank you, Jane! We do try to help our members as fast as possible. I appreciate your kind words 🙂
Hi just finished the agapanthus look beautiful as my garden is full of them I really enjoyed making them .I have tried the glitter glue and at first I thought it was too runny but I was amazed how good it is will be using in future but I very much recommend that it’s used with the fine tip without it it’s hard to control the amount . Can you tell me what colours are going to be used for the orchid for the next member make please. Best wishes to you all especially to Megan , Jane kubon uk
Hi Jane, I’m so glad you’re happy with your flower! Yes we agree, the metal tip is very important when using the art glitter glue. Next month we will be making our own double-sided paper for the project using Honeysuckle, Camellia, Mango, and Poppy. We will also use Fern, Cypress, and Juniper for leaves. Of course you can use pre-made double-sided paper if you already have some on hand. You will see all the details when the post goes live on September 1st!
I I have lots of heavy white crepe but no double sided. Could I use this instead for the blooms? Congratulations Meaghan!!
You can give it a try! You may want to stretch the paper a bit before cutting, but just experiment and see what you like best 🙂 (Meagan says thank you!)
Nice instructional class. I am a beginner, it is easier to try some flowers on my own before watching another live presentation?
I’m glad you tuned in today! This is a great spot to start (https://liagriffith.com/getting-started/). Jump in where you feel most comfortable – one of these past Member Makes may call out to you (https://liagriffith.com/member-make/), or any project that has a video (https://liagriffith.com/craft/videos/).
going to try my new cricut, it just arrived, on this project.
Do you have a peony flower tutorial? I think it was you that I learned how to make crepe paper peony.
How do I post a picture of what I’ve done?
Oh yes, we have several peonies 🙂 This is one of my favorites (https://liagriffith.com/february-member-make-crepe-paper-coral-supreme-peony/). You can post a picture on our Facebook page, or email it to email@example.com.
Ever made Queen Anne’s lace?
We have a simple paper pattern for it! https://liagriffith.com/papercut-queen-annes-lace/
Sounds good. Tks
Can we leave out the 9 buds per flower and fill it with more blooms. I’m not sure I like the look of the buds in the middle.
You can do whatever you’d like 🙂
will there be a tutorial (*.pdf) for those who can’t join your online “how to”?
Yes, we will add a photo tutorial (jpg) a few days after the live event!
How exciting! It looks absolutely gorgeous x
