One of our favorite paper flowers to craft is the beautiful and exotic hibiscus. With hundreds of species to choose from, the hibiscus offers no shortage of variety in terms of color, size, and style. This month’s Member Make is new to our flower collection: the crepe paper double hibiscus. This lush, tropical flower brings all the rich colors of the sunset into your home, creating the perfect island retreat. 

To prepare for our workshop, gather your tools and materials below. Then join us live on Friday, May 19th at 11:00am PT.  Or you can watch the video recording later!

Hi, Biscus! It’s Nice to Meet You

Techniques such as wiring petals, creating small, detailed fringes, and adding color details make this a fun but challenging project — great for more advanced crafters. A double layer of gently curling crepe paper petals gives this delicate flower its natural look. Drawing from a palette of deep pinks, yellows, and greens, the end result is a dramatic stem worthy of any arrangement. 

Along with paper craft techniques, you’ll learn how to use paint, PanPastel, and blending methods to add realistic details to your crepe paper double hibiscus. Once finished, add your blooms to any surface that could use a little brightening. Or pop one behind your ear!

However you choose to show them off — make sure to share them with us! Post your photos on our crafter’s community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MemberMake.

Skill level: Advanced

Crafting tips: We love the look of these flowers as a potted plant with lots of leaves and buds. It also makes a great focal flower in a tropical bouquet.
