Some of you may remember the very first paper freesia that we made back in 2016. And then we made this pretty felt freesia a few years later. Needless to say, making freesia out of crepe paper has been on our to-do list for a while now. Plus so many of you have asked for crepe paper freesia that we knew it would be a great one for our Member Make workshop!
To get ready for this month’s workshop on the 17th, just gather the supplies you need and download our flower pattern below.
Once and floral, we’re making freesia!
This flower got its name when the botanist, Christian Ecklon, named it after another botanist, Friedrich Freese, in honor of their friendship. Because of this, freesias have become a symbol of friendship, trust, and thoughtfulness. We especially love this since Member Make is a time for all of us around the world to come together to craft and make new friends!
Freesias are also very popular in bouquets and centerpieces and are often used for special events, like weddings. We’re excited to see what you do with your crepe paper freesia, so be sure to share photos on our Facebook page for members. Or you can tag #MadeWithLia and #MemberMake on Instagram.
