These leaves seem like they’d be hard to hand cut. Is there an easier alternative leaf to use?
If you’re looking for a more simple shape leaf, give one of these a try: https://liagriffith.com/frosted-paper-lolita-coral-rose/, https://liagriffith.com/frosted-paper-gardenia/, https://liagriffith.com/member-make-crepe-paper-hellebore/, https://liagriffith.com/heavy-crepe-paper-peonies/
tried getting the SVG file but said it may be edited or removed?
I just double-checked and was able to download the SVG without any issues. Maybe try a different browser or restarting? If that doesn’t work, please email a screenshot of what you’re seeing to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you out!
For the simple daisies, why color the fern paper instead of using an orange/yellow crepe paper? Just curious
We only colored the tips of the fringed fern crepe paper so that the fern paper creates a bit of a green glow in the flower! 🙂
I have the crepe paper flower book and tried to download the svg codes but nothing came up am I doing something wrong?
We have emailed you at the email used for your membership and have sent some instructions on how to access the files, we hope this helps and that you can start crafting very soon! 🙂
Do you have a SVG for the Gerbera Daisy that is in the Crepe Paper Flower book published in 2018? The on online Daisy does not have the same pattern design as the one in the book.
The link to all of the SVG files for projects in the book is included in the book 🙂
Thank you I found them!
Great lessons. My first time to try and make crepe flowers. Thank you!
I made these for a baby girl floral arrangement and they turned out so good! This is a fantastic tutorial!
Would this also work with the white/vanilla double sided crepe paper?
Hi Erin, you could use the white & vanilla double sided for the petals instead, however you will not get the delicate translucent effect that the extra fine crepe paper gives to the petals.
Hi Lia, What type of paper did you use for the leaves? Love your stuff. Having lots of fun.
So glad you’re having fun, Maureen! There’s a link under “Materials” that lists the text weight paper we used for the leaves.

Hi Laurie! The pattern for the leaf is included in the SVG and PDF pattern.

[…] piece and then stiched white petals to it to form a large daisy. It was made in a similar way to this crepe paper daisy, but with felt […]
I made a mistake , I was wondering if there is another way to color the inside of the paper in the middle. You used a marker that I don’t have. Should I just buy the marker ? If that’s the only way , I will get it ! Thanks !
We just used the marker since we didn’t have the perfect shade of yellow crepe paper for the center at the time. So you can use yellow crepe or any yellow/orange marker that you have!
Thank you Lia !
What happy little daisies! Lovely.
Is the little curling tool available Lia?
Thank you Beth! The tool will be available mid-March, stay tuned!
