How radiant are these crepe paper Japanese anemones? Over the years we have crafted many black and white anemones. So today we are switching it up with a new variation featuring a bright yellow-orange center.
This crepe paper flower is easy for beginners and simple to cut by hand. Just download our flower pattern below and follow our step-by-step tutorial to craft your own version.
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.

Steps 10 and 11 use the same size petals. Should step 10 use the smaller of the petals?
Hi Pam! That’s a typo in our written instructions. Thanks for letting us know so we can fix it! The photo tutorial has the steps shown correctly — 3 small petals, then 4 large petals.
Hi, can i use the SVG on Silhoutte Cameo 4?
Yes, all of our files can be used on a Silhouette Cameo. I believe they will need to be converted to .Studio files first, but you may want to reach out to Silhouette’s customer service to learn more about that.
This flower has 2 stamens. The SVG indicates that one has a vertical grain line and the other has a horizontal grain ine. Is that correct?
I just edited the SVG so you don’t have to turn anything in Design Space– please download again and use that file 🙂
