For our April Member Make, we will be teaching you how to make crepe paper lisianthus flowers!
If you haven’t heard us talk about Member Make yet, here’s what you need to know. Every month we do a special live workshop for members of our crafting community. If you’re a member, you will get a special YouTube link each month to join us for our monthly creative challenge.
We are so excited to make these crepe paper lisianthus flowers today. And we hope you are too! For this month’s Member Make, we decided to do something a little different.
To make it a little easier on you, we have put all the crepe paper colors you’ll need to make these crepe paper lisianthus flowers into an April Member Make bundle in our online craft shop. This way, you don’t have to buy a bunch of different packs for just one or two colors! (UPDATE: The bundle has sold out! Visit our shop to buy each color– links listed below under Materials!)
Ready to join our April Member Make? Here’s how it works:

Thank you so much for the tutorial on this flower! So fun to make and it turned out so pretty!
Great to hear! I think the videos really help. 🙂
Is there any way we could get a photo tutorial for this flower? I know it’s a pretty old Member Make, but it would be really helpful!
Sorry, we are pretty busy, and to go back and spend a few hours to make a photo tutorial is just not in our time budget right now. Hopefully, the video will give you what you need if you pause as you work along.
I’m very confused about which color crepe corresponds to which part to cut. Are the petals aubergine or sangria? Both are listed in the materials, but design space has them as the same color and in this video it wasnt stated. This has happened a few projects I’ve done. Am I being slow?
Use the same color of crepe paper for all petals per flower. We made a few flowers in Aubergine, and a few in Merlot (formerly called Sangria).

[…] Another beauty from Lia Griffith are these paper Lisianthus blooms. Make them using whatever color of crepe paper you like best […]
I live half the year in South Africa and the other half in Scotland
Currently Watching from South Africa……………. will stock up on my supplies when I go to Scotland in June
Yay! Hopefully one day we’ll have a distributor that ships to South Africa!
That will be awesome!! You can always start a franchise in South Africa……
Wouldn’t that be fun 😉
these flowers are amazing! thank you so much for making a video on making these, i especially love the use of tacky glue instead of a glue gun, as a klutz i burn myself all time when making smaller flowers and its also so messy compared to just normal glue.
cant wait to try and make these, and see what you guys think of next!
also. ppleeaaaasee make extra fine crepe paper in different shades, and please give us something blue!
Ha! I can relate to the burns 🙂 Tacky glue works so well on most crepe paper flowers. We really hope to continue developing new crepe paper colors, stay tuned!
I just got a low temp glue gun and I LOVE not burning my fingers anymore. Also got the glue Lia recommends. It drys so fast. Love that too!
That’s great, I’m so glad!
What did you make from the chiffon crepe paper? Thanks so much, these are beautiful.
Hi! The chiffon is used for the stigma and stamen. We colored it with yellow PanPastel so you could also use white or another light color!
Where do I enter my code that is in the book that I purchased, to get the SVG files?
Page 31 in the book lists the URL and code 🙂
Any hint in cutting those long skinny leaf parts for the lisianthus? The flowers are beautiful and I have the centers finished.
You could cut a strip of crepe to the correct height, then cut from the bottom at a slight diagonal on both sides to get the (slight) triangle shape. I know they’re pretty tiny!
Hi I’m really new and want to try this but the link to buy the April member make bundle is not working.
