Ready for this month’s paper flower workshop? Designed by Meagan, these crepe paper pom pom poppies are delightfully fluffy! Delicate and wispy, they fit in perfectly with this month’s magical fairy garden theme.
You can join our live workshop over on our Member Make page on August 26th at 11:00am PT. In the meantime, check out our supplies list below to get prepared.
Pop in and craft with us!
Though most of our Member Make flowers are created for an intermediate skill level, these crepe paper pom pom poppies are actually quite simple to make. So if you’re new to paper flower making or consider yourself a beginner, come join our workshop and try crafting these pretty flowers! If you can’t make the live, you can access the video tutorial anytime afterward.
As always, feel free to get creative with your crepe paper pom pom poppies. During the workshop, we will show you how we used PanPastel to create a couple of different pink hues for our paper flowers. You can use other PanPastel colors if you like or experiment with different coloring techniques. Of course you can also use different colors of crepe paper as well.
When you’re done crafting your crepe paper pom pom poppies, you can add a few to a vase. Or they would also look really striking in a larger arrangement. We’d love to see what you do with them, so be sure to post photos on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia or share on our crafters community page.

hi, I’ve used my Cricut maker to cut out the items needed for this lovely flower, and it doesn’t cut the sepals, I’ve not changed anything on the settings, but what I assume are the sepals on the pattern just come out as 2 partially cut rectangles.
I’ve sorted it by cutting them out by hand but wondered if I am doing something wrong?
This seems to be a Cricut issue right now. A lot of people have complained about small bits and template pieces disappearing off the Design Space mat. Hang in there. Cricut will get it fixed as I am sure they are hearing from a lot of people right now.
Such a beautiful flower! I am wondering where you got the brushes for applying the pan pastel.
Thanks so much. You both are awesome!!
Thanks, Alice! We are looking for an upright version of these brushes, but in the meantime, this is the one we used. https://amzn.to/3CPofuQ
Couldn’t you use the negative space of the “petal” to create a bud? Just add a couple of sepals? I love a mix of buds and mature flowers!
I am right there with you, Libby! I was seeing something good when she pulled those two pieces apart. I just googled for an image of the bud and think this would work. I might start with a spun ball to get the shape, then add the petals and sepals.
Hello! Which Cricut mat should I use with the extra fine crepe? Do you have a video explaining Cricut settings/mats to be used for the different crepe paper weights? Thank you!
This video here in the Craft Academy shares how to cut crepe paper. It will also be included in our upcoming Skills Course. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/cutting-machines-for-crepe-paper/
Looking forward to the class. I will be watching the taped replay, so I’ll miss the fu oft the live version 😢, but I am looking forward to the lesson 😊. Margaret
Enjoy! It was such a fun flower to create.
It looks like each “petal” cut on the Cricut is meant to be one sided but the cutout is very similar. Can you use the negative cut as well for petals? This one is really beautiful. I’m looking forward to the member make!
The negative cut is not meant to be used as petals for this flower, however we do use that cutting technique for some of our patterns!
Cutting out the frilly petals that we will likely be wrapping around. Finally started trusting the “crepe paper” setting on default. The issue (or maybe not issue due to the frilliness of the tips) seems to be attached to the crepe paper and you have to gently rip it from the top so that you get a neat soft edge, am I correct? The other parts cut perfectly, but i’m so scared that it’s not cutting through on the tops, but maybe that’s by design for these? Should I try a different setting? I like the crepe setting because it seems to not tear up the green mats as much. Doing this with extra fine crepe paper for the petals of course.
The pattern should cut all the way at the tips, maybe try the “more” pressure for the crepe paper setting. If the tips are still attached you could cut them free.
how much leaves di I cut per flower ? one of each or more ?
thanks a lot
There are three leaves per stem.
how many leaves do I cut out please
There are 3 per stem, but you can cut as many as you like.
I have made so many beautiful flowers but I am still trying out how to arrange them. This is the hard part for me. I make an arrangement then look at it a couple days later and say to myself that just does not look right and I take it all apart again. How do I learn how to arrange these gorgeous (so life like) flowers that I have made so beautifully. Can you give me ideas. I appreciate every one of the classes I have taken, thank you for all your work. Sincerely Debra Arnson
Hi Debra. We are working on a full master class for arranging. In the meantime, you can watch these two videos on a style of arrangement that is unique. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/arranging-crepe-paper-flower-spring-bouquets/. I have a few other arrangement videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvQTosnjkOvY6GVGYkosOQrdM0cMnRsGB
Very pretty flower. How many sepals do I need to cut for each flower?
You only need the two included in the template!
These are awesome ! Can’t wait !
Thank you for another beautiful flower; they look so real!
I am so excited to make these too!
