crepe paper potted cyclamen

Keep calm and cyclamen on

Unlike our frosted paper version, this potted crepe paper cyclamen is more advanced. Perfect if you’re looking for a more challenging flower to make! Our tutorial will walk you through all of the steps, including how to color your flowers and add more detail to your leaves with different kinds of markers.

Once you’ve assembled your cyclamen, you can use your favorite little pot to “plant” it in. This flower is on the smaller side, so we think it would be fun to keep on your office desk, a coffee table, or a kitchen counter or shelf. 

Skill: Advanced due to the small, intricate pieces you’ll be assembling and lots of color details added

Crafting tip: Use needle-nose tweezers to place small pieces and the steel ball tool to shape petals.
