Yes! We’re back with one of our favorite crafts – paper flowers. Our crepe paper amaryllis makes a nifty little handmade hostess gift. It could also make the perfect handmade gift for your Mother-in-law, friend or neighbor. Or, if you love it as much as we do, and can’t bear to part with it, then this potted paper amaryllis can turn a tired table top into the prettiest corner of your home. Made using crepe papers, this stunning paper flower is simple to make by even the newest of newbies to the crafting scene. All you will need is crepe paper in white, gold foil and green, floral wire, mini pliers, a gold pen, glue gun, scissors and of course our printable template below. Click on the PDF, print out the pattern and trim the shapes to size. Use these to cut out the pattern in the crepe paper and then you can follow our simple step-by-step tutorial below.
If you would like to pot your paper amaryllis, then you can fill your chosen vessel with floral foam and a few stones to weigh it down. Cover the top with moss and stick the floral wire stems of your paper flowers into the foam. Arrange the flowers so that they point outwards, then stand back and admire your handiwork!

Hi Lia, your flowers are beautiful, very talented. I am going to have a go at making some for my table this summer. Im not sure how this works as this is my first attempt. I like so many flowers but as Im scrolling it opens up some that I dont want. I have to be more careful that my finger only touches the ones I want to make.
Good luck Olga, we’re here if you have questions!

these are beautiful.
Could you tell me what color of green you used?
I’m not sure of the name, but it was a green from Carte Fini. I made this before I began launching my own crepe paper line, so I wasn’t able to use my paper at the time! Now I would recommend using my extra fine crepe for flower making because it is much more delicate looking than this 180g crepe 🙂 It will be available for purchase through Amazon July 1st!
