As you may know, we typically do one live workshop a month for our Member Make challenge. But since it’s National Craft Month, we wanted to kick it off with something a little special. This month is all about bringing new ideas to life, developing your DIY skills, and getting together with your crafting buddies. And that’s what we’re here to help you do. Today at 11 a.m. PT, I will be showing you how to make this beautiful crepe paper dutch iris.
You can join me live as I craft this pretty spring flower. Or you can watch it later when it’s convenient for you. But if you have time to pop in and say hi, please do!
Easy on the Iris
Our crepe paper dutch iris is such a beautiful flower. There’s something dramatic and striking about it, yet soft and delicate. This is also a flower that florists love because of how easy it is to arrange. However, the real flower is toxic to cats’ kidneys, so it’s a good idea to make it out of paper or felt if you want to bring a dutch iris into your home.
When you’re ready to craft your own crepe paper dutch iris, just gather the tools and materials listed below. Make sure to also download the iris flower pattern at the end of this post. If you’re using a Cricut Maker, there’s an SVG cut file for this flower. Or if you’re cutting by hand, you can use our PDF template. Once you have everything ready to go, you can watch our live video tutorial to learn how to make this flower. We will also show the heavy crepe paper Iris from this post.
Of course you can always put your own creative spin on it! We would love to see your version of our crepe paper dutch iris and how you decide to arrange it once you’re done crafting. Make sure to share your flowers with us on our Facebook page for members. And don’t forget to tag #MadeWithLia, especially if you’re posting on Instagram.
We hope you enjoy our special live workshop this month! And if you want to see more live workshops, just let us know. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
