Gone with the Wind(flower)

Did you know the name anemone means windflower in Greek? This flower got its name because of the wind blowing its delicate petals open. To recreate these delicate petals, our designer Meagan used our extra-fine crepe paper in white. This will make your crepe paper Japanese anemones look more realistic —  along with stretching, cupping, and curling your petals.

Once you have crafted a few of these crepe paper Japenese anemones, you can place them together in a vase for a simply stunning bouquet. You can also make someone’s day by giving them this sweet crepe paper bouquet! For more ideas on how to use these blooms, check out our braided rope anemone wreath and our gold hoop anemone wreath.
