Very Pretty, just to clarify. Looks like you need to cut out 20 medium and large petals. How many of the smallest petals do you cut out? Thanks
Thank you, we think so too! You’ll need 10 of the smallest petals for this particular project.
I love your site and am a member. I started making paper flowers this winter for my daughter’s July wedding. It was such a wonderful discovery for me and now I am hooked. I would like to buy a Cricut cutting machine but have no idea which model to purchase. I only plan to cut paper. Can you advise me?
Thank you so much!
Hi Lynda! We love the Cricut Explore Air. The Maker is pretty amazing if you think you’ll ever want to cut felt, fabric or crepe paper!
I don’t know what the Heavy Paper is ! Lol. I bet you have said it over a hundred times but I didn’t hear it. So if I want to do a project and don’t have it can I iron two papers together ? Is that the same thing ? I have all Lia’s paper except the Heavy.
The heavy crepe paper is thicker (sometimes called “floristic”), and it’s is better for certain flowers and botanicals. We did make a video on how to make your own double-sided using extra fine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JuR9yoYkZs
Hopefully you can make more vdo instruction.
We’re working on it 🙂
I paid the $99. Unable to log in. Continues to return to “become a member”. Unable to print out patterns, etc.

Hi! Just wondering where the crepe paper came from. I love the colors!
Thank you! The deep red and greens are available in our shop (https://shop.liagriffith.com/collections/crepe-paper/products/10-pack-christmas-color-pack-floristic-crepe-paper). The plum is one of our new colors that will be available in January!!
