We 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 paper 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.

Dear Lia, thank for the good work, pls keep it up! Kindly guide me to where I can get the link to the SVG files for the simple anemones.
Hi Grace! We don’t have an SVG for this exact design but here’s one that will work! https://liagriffith.com/video-tutorial-extra-fine-gold-crepe-paper-anemones-starter-pattern/
so clearly I’m a little behind the ball here….but I LOVE these, and I love the paper! Thank you for all your hard work in bringing this to market and making it available! My kitchen is a disaster, but my flowers are turning out great!
That’s great to hear 🙂
Hi Lia — Does the pattern have to be increased in size? it seems quite small when I print it out. Can you let me know what size the petals should be? I’m having a heard time with the pattern as printed. Thanks so much
Hi Marie, the petals should be around 2″ wide and 2.625″ high!
These are so pretty, and the colours are luscious 🙂
Thank you!! 🙂
Love the beautiful flowers, can you get the crepe paper you used, or can you use any? I’m in the UK.
Thanks Marilyn! My line of crepe paper will be available for purchase in the US July, but in the meantime you can use any. 🙂
Love the colors!!!!!
Cannot get enough of these beautiful flowers!! I can’t wait to buy up some of your crepe paper too!! Thank you so much for amazing décor ideas!!!
Thank you so much!
I happened to catch the Home and Family show the day Lia and the group made these lovely flowers. It was that show that brought me to this wonderful website! I look forward to finding and making a variety of these great projects. Thank you, Lia, for the inspiriation!
Welcome Roxanne, we’re so happy to have you here!
Urgh come on Lia! These are gorgeous! I’m obsessed with all the new flowers. I can’t believe we have to wait until JULY 1st! That’s ages away! 😉 I can’t wait so I’m going to have to get some cheap crepe from the discount shop and try these out – they won’t be as pretty but at least I can practice and get my technique nailed down with the cheap stuff before I get my hands on your gorgeous new papers! I had a look at some of your older crepe paper tutorials and you can tell the difference between the other paper and yours, yours looks so much smoother and realistic! I’m thrilled you have white in your paper colours I’m planning on making tons of white peonies, hydranges and anemones for centrepieces for a big 80th party I’m throwing my grandad next year! I can’t wait for July 1st!
You are so sweet Danielle!! I think that is a wonderful idea to practice before the crepe line is available on Amazon 😉 This paper is perfect for peonies, I have been having so much fun with it! That is so awesome that you will be using crepe flowers as centerpieces for your grandad’s birthday. Feel free to share photos after the event!
