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.
