crepe paper white parrot tulips

Repeat after us: I can do this!

Although we have made some parrot tulips in the past, our crepe paper watercolor parrot tulips are more of an intermediate project. But don’t worry! We will walk you through how to make these flowers step by step, including how to add watercolor to your petals for a more realistic look.

If you find that you love adding color to your paper flowers, you can also check out our April workshop from last year when we used PanPastel on our parrot tulips. There are so many ways to add color to your flowers, so feel free to experiment with different coloring methods to discover what you like best!


Gather your craft tools and materials, then download the paper flower template or SVG file at the end of this post. You can craft your flower during our live workshop on January 20th at 11:00 am PT, or watch the recording here later. (We will email the link to join our workshop the week before and the day of.) As always, you can get as creative as you want with your paper flower and reach out to us if you have questions — or post photos on our Facebook page for members or on Instagram with the hashtag #MemberMake.
