Believe it or not, it has been five years since we last made a tulip out of frosted paper. And we have come a long way with our techniques since then! For this month’s craft collection, Meagan has designed some frosted paper tulips that will make pretty home decor or a lovely gift.
Tulip-git to quit
Tulip season is upon us! It always feels like it goes so fast, which is why we like to make these flowers out of paper and felt. This way you can enjoy them for much longer than one or two months.
Unlike the other tulips we have made, we decided to place our frosted paper tulips in a pot. If you’ve taken our Crepe Paper Flowers master class, you will know exactly how we do this! If you don’t want to pot your flowers, you could always place them in a vase or add them to a paper flower arrangement.
Skill level: Intermediate as it takes some work with the curling tool to get a good shape without wrinkling the paper.
Crafting tips: Be gentle when curling the petals so you don’t wrinkle or rip the paper. Also, make sure to apply the PanPastel shading after assembling and shaping the petals to avoid transferring the color to your fingers. If you want to be sure there is no color transfer, you could always use a spray fixative.

Love these tulips and so did everyone that saw them. I will be making them forever!
Thanks for sharing! It is always amazing to see how a flat piece of paper can be transformed.
Up for another project idea? California Poppies out of frosted paper would be lovely. Thanks.
Thanks, Christina! On my list. 🙂
Love these tulips, can’t wait to make them! But I’m struggling to find the metallic paper. Any suggestion where can I buy it?
Hi! Check out the bottom of the post under “Shop This Project”– there are links to the metallic paper that we love 🙂
I’ve tried that but it seems to have a problem in the link! Thanks
