I am loving working with crepe paper to make new flower designs. The crepe stretches to form petal shapes and ruffled edges giving the paper flowers a luxe finish. It has been several years since I designed the rose pattern for the printed and metallic paper version that are quite easy to make and so popular for DIY weddings. I knew that it was time to design a crepe paper rose, and it was during my morning walk with Enzo (my dog) that I decided today’s flower needed to be the full bloom garden variety I was seeing in my neighborhood yards. You can try this pattern with any variety or color of crepe and it will no doubt be beautiful. Order a roll or two of crepe paper and make this gorgeous crepe paper rose bloom with me. Below you will find the step by step tutorial and the printable pattern for this luscious garden rose. Enjoy! ~ Lia

Where can I get the roll of pink ombre crepe that was used for this project?
Carti Fini website should sell these.
Hi Lia, Can I make these roses from your double sided crepe paper? I love all that you do.
Hi Linda! Thank you, so sweet of you to say. This is an older pattern so I’d highly recommend one of these using double-sided crepe! https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-ruby-rose-video-tutorial/ or https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-rose-buds/

Hello I just saw the rose you did at creativation, are these the same roses? And is this rose available in SVG?
Hi Kari! The rose demonstrated was using the Fiskars template, but these are pretty close! https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-garden-roses/, https://liagriffith.com/crepe-paper-rose-buds/
I am trying to make flowers for the time and your tutorials are really easy to follow and beautiful.
Thank you! 🙂
I used this pattern to make my wedding bouquets! everyone thought they were real flowers. I wish i could post some pictures on here!
I cannot wait to try out some more patterns.
That’s great Christina, I’m so glad they turned out so well! We would love to see photos, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Congratulations and best wishes to you!
Hello Lia, where can i buy crepe papers online?
Hi! My line will be available in July but for now, PaperMart.com sells rolls in a variety of colors. We’re pretty sure their crepe is made in China, so the quality is very different than our German-made brand. But it would be good to practice with! ?
[…] have to thank Lia Griffith for her DIY Crepe Paper Ombre Garden Roses post for which these garden roses are inspired. Her ombre garden rose petal template was a great […]
Love this!! How many flowers can you make with one roll each (1 salmon, 1 sage, 1 green leaf)? Thank you!
The rolls are pretty large, so you will be able to make a bunch of flowers!
Ilove this..where can i find the printable patterns? Thank you
The are buttons to download the templates at the bottom of the post, below the last image.
I really loved your flowers and would love to make it. However italian crepe paper is not available in India . Will it work out with the normal crepe paper.
Thanks a ton,
Yes, it would work with normal crepe paper:-)
Hi, I wonder where can I get the lovely crepe paper?
Hi, I get my crepe paper from a company called Carte Fini. You can find their papers on Amazon Italian Crepe Paper roll 180 gram – 603 CREAM
i really loved this but the problem is that we do not get flower wire in india could you suggest any other wire
Hello Priya, I would try regular thin wire and wrap it with brown floral tape or brown ribbon.
This bring back memories from my childhood (and we won’t discuss how long ago that’s been!). I used to spend a week every summer with my great-aunt, and we made all kinds of crafty things, including these crepe paper roses. I love your ombre version and I know should would too. Time to make a bouquet and savor the memories. Thanks, Lisa.
Thanks Laurie! Great memories and I loved hearing about them.

Such pretty colors Lia! I’ve told so many people about your delicious blog! <3
Awwww, thanks! You are the best!!
You never fail to amuse me Lia
That is fabulous then! Love to amuse. 🙂
are the green colors from the same store? and if so, what color are they?
Hi Kim! I just added that info and link into the post. Good point. 😉
Gorgeous! Do you think I could make these with dyed coffee filters?
That would be a different pattern. Since this once stretches and coffee filters don’t you would have a different look. I am sure it would be a pretty flower though.
Thank you very much for bringing out such wonderful tutorials. They’re so easy to follow. 🙂
I am so happy to hear that!

Another great paper flower from you—so very pretty!
Clicking the download link takes me to a photograph, not the pattern 🙁
That seems to happen every week! Gads. I fixed it. Thanks for letting me know. 😉
Just absolutely stunning!! One of my very favorites of yours!
Thanks Michelle! It was really fun to make from that ombre crepe.
