It is funday Monday and time for a new paper flower! Anemone flowers come in many colors and the wedding favorites are the creamy white and pale pinks. Though for my paper bouquet today I used this single bloom, I am looking forward to mixing these pretty blooms with some other paper flowers. You may remember my paper anemone tutorial from last year where I printed the watercolor pattern onto a text weight paper. These are still some of my favorite paper flowers that I have designed, and today I am sharing another version and method for the gorgeous blooms. These are made entirely from tissue paper which give a delicate finish and a bit of transparency to the petals.The Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers. Livia has a very different version of the paper anemone in this book that you may also enjoy making. You can also view her classes and mine at Creativebug. For my other materials I used an 18 gage floral wire, green floral tape and 1 inch foam balls. My tools are scissors, pinking sheers, wire cutters, glue gun and a craft knife. You will find my step-by-step tutorial below as well as a printable pattern. Enjoy! ~ Lia
Are you having trouble? Feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you out.
I was wondering where the best place to buy crepe paper is? Would Michaels carry this product?
Hi Emily, we sell our own line of crepe and tissue online: https://shop.liagriffith.com/. Your local craft store may sell thicker crepe, you could definitely call and ask what they have in stock.
Help I would like to know if you can send me already made paper flowers :(. My wedding is coming up and I have so much to do so little time:/
Sorry Olivia, I wish we could help but only provide templates and instructions! Perhaps you could host a Crafternoon with family & friends to help make flowers? 🙂
heel mooie bloemen om te maken dank je wel

Oh my heavens Lia I am so enchanted with all your breath taking varied paper flowers I don’t want to do anything else but make flowers, (especially not housework). Have got two or 3 different ones going at same time. Each one I print out makes me want to do next one and next one. What an exciting collection you have shared with us. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your generosity. Wish I had cutting machine but since I love cutting things out it’s good therapy along with good exercise for arthritic hands.
Can’t decide which kind of paper I prefer making them with most. I found some really pretty pearl glazed paper at Michaels last night. Don’t want to have to wait for papers to come to me, want to dive right in when one flower finished to go on to next. Will be busy for quite awhile. Going to make pretty bouquets for both grand daughters, one for oldest, 18 for congrats on her graduation and being awarded an awesome scholarship and one bouquet for 15 yr. old who was voted class president for upcoming year. They are both such great kids, so talented and nice people. Their parents have done such an awesome job raising them.
Haven’t been this excited about making things for long time. Will be very busy making many of your pretties. Will give some as gifts. Will be ordering some of papers you have suggested. Love idea of making tissue flowers and crepe paper flowers also. Hope your holiday weekend is going beautifully and happy week.
I know what you mean about rather crafting than doing housework, maybe that is why I have so many paper flowers:-) Sounds like your grand daughters are very talented, you must be so proud!
Hello! I’m getting married in June and want to carry a big paper flower instead of a bouquet. This is exactly what I was looking for. I´ll just make them a lot bigger!!! Thank you so much!!!! You´re helping me make one of my wedding dreams come true!!!
Wonderful! Share photos of the finished flower too. I am excited to see. 🙂

I can certainly see why you have so many appreciative readers/followers. Another excellent flower craft. Haven’t made them yet but think I might like the tissue paper anemones, so light and pretty. I’ll be in rummaging in all my tissue paper stash, at least tissue paper is affordable, to give these a try. Now I hope I have 1 inch. foam balls.
Thank you so much for sharing this revised version of anemones. Your mind must be going all the time to continually come up with incredible projects. Your talents are never ending, I hope.
Tissue flowers are new for me and I will be making them every three weeks for a while. If you don’t have a 1 inch foam ball try rolling tissue into a ball, flattening it a tad and using that. You just need a form to cover.
Thank you!!! They are wonderful!!!

O I am so happy to see your site, do you do Christmas flowers , + add to homemade wreaths
, I would love to make gifts for Christmas, also 1 question , is the tissue paper good to use on ogrami ( spell check) I wanted to make Christmas snow flakes & stars, went to hobby lobby , was no paper there , I hope you have time to answer , I bet you are asked many questions, so if you doiont answer , I will understand. I am gonna make some of these flowers , TY
Tissue is a bit light for origami, I don’t think it would hold. But you can use any simple light weight paper that has more thickness than that. If you look under the Holiday tab and click on Christmas, you will see a few flowers and wreaths.
You’ve got me hooked! If I didn’t need a paycheck,
I’d be at home everyday making all the beautiful paper flowers you’ve been sharing lately. My resolution for the second half of 2014 is to make all of them. Thank you sooo much for sharing these tutorials!
I know, right?! If you do make them all you MUST share photos of your progress. I would LOVE to see them.
