CrepeAnemone4We are currently at the National Stationery Show in New York to debut our brand new crepe paper line which will be available for you lovely people to purchase very soon! To celebrate the launch, we wanted to share one of our crepe paper flowers with you as a free pattern to download and make at home. The anemone is one of my favorite flowers, its classic shape makes it so versatile for wedding bouquets, centerpieces, or as a simple home decoration on it’s own. I have made a few paper anemone flowers over the years but this crepe paper anemone is unique because it uses my double sided crepe paper.

These two-tone papers give us a whole new set of opportunities for paper flower making. Not only do they help to add the illusion of more depth to paper flowers, but they give us more versatility in all our crepe paper crafts! You can purchase our double sided crepe paper, or browse the other colors in the extra fine crepe line in our crepe shop!  

Begin by downloading and printing our paper flower pattern below and cut out the templates. Cut all the petals and leaves and then follow our step-by-step tutorial below to assemble your anemone blooms. Our top tip for making crepe paper flowers is to gently stretch each petal from the center outwards using your thumbs. This will create a deep cup shape that is perfect for assembling full paper blooms. I would also recommend using 3/4 inch foam balls for the centers but if you don’t have those, simply roll up your crepe paper scraps and cover with black crepe.
