For this paper wild rose, Lia used craft glue, however you can also use hot glue. If using craft glue, make sure to give your project plenty of time to dry along the way. We used our crepe paper in the colors Blush, Chiffon and Cypress, but feel free to play around with colors and get creative!

I am in the process of making this project. My first! i found dipping the stamen tips in the gold paint quite difficult since they don’t all fit in the pot of paint at once and some of them are pointing in different directions after being twisted. Is their a trick to doing this? They turned out OK. I just did a few at a time on each strip and let them dry and then went back to do more, but that seems unnecessarily tedious. Also, curious if you have a favorite gold paint? The image is too small to see it and the materials list doesn’t specify one. Thanks so much.
Hi Kathryn! You can use a paintbrush, or try using a bigger space for the paint so you can try to dip it all at once. We make this flower in the Crepe Paper Flower Master Class slightly different (no twisting, just cutting very fine). You should sign up if you want to learn how to make more crepe flowers! https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/crepe-paper-master-course/. Re: gold paint, I updated the post with a link to my favorite.
Please let me know if there is an SVG for this. Thanks.
The SVG has been added 🙂
These are stunning, I can only imagine beauty of the the gold tipped fringes. (unless, I try them myself – TRY being the operative word, lol)! Another exquisite flower tutorial. Thank you 🙂
I’ recently used turmeric on some flowers I made – very effective too. (stains your finger nails though) .
Thank you Janet, and great suggestion! Good to know about staining fingernails.
Hi Lia, Your flowers are wonderful. I shall continue to pin them. Do Thank you ever so much,
you sell the supplies as well? However it seems you have to pay for a membership to get the templates to go with your tutorials. . Is that correct? Your photos are exceptionally beautiful.. I am just wondering, there are so many sites that provide the instructions and the templates, but get compensation by other means.I am sure your membership fees are well worth your charge, but for now I shall just enjoy your photos and pass your site on in my Pinterest account.
Thank you ever so much,
Hi Sandie, thanks for your comment! Yes, we charge for most of our projects (although we do have quite a few freebies). In order to pay our staff of 10 to continue creating amazing projects for our readers, we opted for a membership-based website.
