We have been loving all of the intricate and unique paper flowers Meagan has been creating this year using our frosted paper. If you took our frosted paper flowers master class, then you know that this type of paper is perfect for making more detailed flowers like this frosted paper spider lily.
Because it is more detailed, we recommend using a cutting machine for this flower. However, we do have a template if you want to cut by hand.
We lily love paper flowers
This frosted paper spider lily can stand alone in a vase or be added to your paper flower arrangements. Either way, they will definitely catch your eye! You can make yours using a light pink paper like we did, or get creative and use some of our other frosted paper colors like white, a darker pink, or red.
For additional detail, we colored our stamen and petals with some Blick Studio brush markers. Our tutorial below will show you how to do this along with assembling your flowers and attaching them to your stem.
Skill level: Intermediate, especially if you’re not using a cutting machine as there are a lot of small pieces and cuts. You must also use a high-temp hot glue gun with frosted paper, which is a little tricky on the small pieces.

Hi Lia, should I go for crepe paper, which grain direction shall I consider for the petals? Maybe better to cut single petals in the grain direction or keep one in the grain direction and the remaining two rotated?
Thanks for any advise. And thanks for being so inspiring!
PS: I’m having looot of issues in finding any frosted paper in Italy, any suggestion at the best of your knowledge?
Hi Daniela, Yes, you got this! You can cut each petal individually with the grainline going from base to tip. I look forward to seeing your creation.
This would also be cool if it was with crepe paper.
It would be! Share pics if you do it in crepe. 😉
Can’t wait to make these! My Mom had white ones when I was growing up. Thanks for making my day!
Ohh how sweet!!
