Where are the SVG files for this flower? Camellias?
PaperPapers sponsored this post for us and they have all of the patterns for you on their site which we link to in the post. 🙂 Here is link where you can find the pattern if you are struggling to find it in this post. https://www.paperpapers.com/news/paper-camellia/
how many petals and in what size and order do you need to create this, its not clear
Hi Lucy, did you watch the step-by-step video? What step are you getting stuck on?
What is considered frosted paper? Is that like vellum paper?
Hi Janie! Frosted paper has a pearlescent/metallic finish, and comes in text weight and cardstock (we use text weight for our paper flowers). It’s also called Metallic or Pearlized paper.
Why is it when I download you template in either PDF or SVG it doesn’t download everything? The large heart shaped petals are cut off. Thankyou
Oh no! I’m not sure what the problem is. Could you send a screenshot and more details to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Beautiful flowers. Thanks
Love your easy paper making flowers and crafts. Thanks
[…] are always a good idea. But you know what’s even better? When you make them by hand! Make these stunning camellias using Lia Griffith’s […]
Hi lia how can I make these flowers without stems? I want to use them as backdrops
Hi Barbara! I’d recommend trimming the floral wires on the blooms to about 1 inch, and coiling them in a corkscrew shape. You can easily poke these through a ribbon if you’re hanging them that way.
When the instructions to make your flowers call for paper can I use crepe paper? Will the end result be the same? Your flowers are beautiful.
Hi Sonia! No, the frosted paper templates won’t work for crepe paper. All of our crepe flowers require cutting individual petals so they can be shaped along with the grain of the crepe paper.
Another idea if you don’t have a knitting needle or skewer on hand – use a rounded chopstick and sharpen the end in a pencil sharpener.
This is gorgeous thank you for the video it was simple and easily understood.
I loved it!!
Where do you buy the fiskars petal curling tool?
I could not find it anywhere online not even on the fiskars website.
Thank you Linda!! The curling tool is being sold exclusively at JoAnn’s right now (https://www.joann.com/lia-griffith-signature-paper-curler-scoring-tool/15892649.html#q=lia%20griffith&prefn1=prod_type&sz=36&start=37&prefv1=Product). We’ll have our tools for sale in our shop in June!
I live in Australia, have been looking for frosted paper text weight paper and the curling tool but with no success. Can you help please
Spotlight is the only craft supply source we know of in Australia, you might find text weight paper there! Our Fiskars tools aren’t available yet but hope to be sold world-wide soon.
I enjoyed watching the video. The directions are clear and easy to understand I like being able to see the flowers in progress.
One other thing I have noticed in this video and the one I watched last week there is a deep rumble in the soundtrack. It is rather distracting if the video is very long. If there a way to eliminate the background rumble?
Thanks Katie! The rumbling you hear is likely street noise– we’re located in the heart of the Pearl district in Portland and have a hard time finding very quiet time during our business and filming hours. Our video editor does his best to eliminate the noise but it’s not always possible. We’re hoping to be able to sound proof a bit more one day!
