We have a brand-new flower for you today! Designed by Meagan, this crepe paper nasturtium is a bit more on the complex side. So if you’re just starting out, we recommend any of our beginner paper flowers instead.
Because there are a lot of small and intricate pieces to cut, we recommend using your Maker or Cameo 4. But you can always cut by hand if you prefer.

Nasturtiums can be compact or trailing. They can also climb with support. With these crepe paper nasturtium flowers, you can choose whether to place them in a vase or have them trailing down or around another object.
These flowers come in many different colors, including yellow, orange, and red. We made our crepe paper nasturtium using a pink shade, but of course you can use any color you want. Whatever color you choose for your flowers, our tutorial will show you how to add more detail to your petals to give the inside of your blooms that beautiful burst of color.
Skill level: Intermediate/advanced as there are a lot of small details and parts to the flowers and leaves.
Crafting tip: Try wrapping your crepe paper nasturtium up a stake in a pot or around one of our gold hoops, like we did in this vine project.

I heard this flower mentioned in one of your videos and wanted to make it. However, I can’t seem to find a video for it. Does this mean that there isn’t one? Too bad if there isn’t because as mentioned above, it is a more complicated flower. Ah well, I’ll just have to follow the pictures. Thanks so much.
Hi Helene. Unfortunately, we do not have time to make a video of every flower we design for the site. We do as many as possible.
Yes! So excited to try this one!
It is one of my favorites.
You know that you can put them in your salad. They are delicious. Well the one you plant in the garden are delicious. I would not try to eat the paper ones, even though they look almost real.
Love that! Another reason to plant them in my garden this year!
Wow this is such a gorgeous flower I’ve never seen this one before I can’t wait to try to make it I have the best teachers Ever !!!
Thank you, Stephanie! I am going to share your appreciation with Meagan.
I am just about to plant my nasturtiums in my garden. I start them from seeds saved from last year’s plants. I was trying to figure out how I could make the leaves, well I gues I don’t have to wonder anymore. I always say the leaves look like a lily pad’s. My plants have leaves that are varigated, and the flowers come in colours from bright yellow to dark orange, almost red. I will see how close I can get these to look like my plants.
Please say thank you to Meagan, she has done a really good job.
I am in love with these flowers and how she designed them. Can not wait to see how yours come out. You can really play with the colors of these flowers.
I put some seeds into my garden. I hope on real flowers in 6 weeks 🙂 – I love Nasturtium (Kapuzinerkresse)
Ok, now I am inspired to plant some in my garden as well. 🙂
Meagan, you outdid yourself. The flower is BEAUTIFUL!
I totally agree and will tell her you said so. 😉
