Paper Anemone Tutorial

A visual guide with different techniques, realistic details, clear instructions, coloring and shaping tips.

*Paper Anemone Tutorial* is a 67 pages material and 4 template pages with different petal styles and personal drawings.This creative study will take you on a complex journey, starting with a simple flower, easy to make, with a minimum amount of petals, followed by more complex and elaborate anemones, with different petal templates. I also used some real flowers as an inspiration source and you will receive some of my drawings and sketches. Also, you will learn the system behind the anemone petal placement.


For these anemone flowers I used different types of crepe paper: the lovely German Werola 160 gr for the first versions, but also the stretchy and fine Italian 90 gr paper, from Cartotecnica Rossi.


I’ve recreated this flower many times and I’m sure you will learn something new from this material which you can use and adapt to your own work aesthetics. If you have bought some of my previous materials you will find that I use some similar techniques.

If you have bought my previous materials you will find that I use some similar techniques but with a different approach. This Study is available to purchase on my etsy shop but you can also buy it directly from me (contact me).

Queen Anne’s lace, protea and anemone.

This paper flowers bouquet was inspired by the interior of a house near the water, in California. A color theme with white tones, soft greens, some blue and purple seemed the perfect fit for that place. I used a lot of paper greenery, eucalyptus, olive branches and the flower diversity is rich, romantic, with an exotic twist: anemone, garden roses, some hydrangeas, sweet peas, fritillaria tulips, scabiosa, lunaria plant, a white protea and a artichoke. The Queen Anne’s lace gives it the finale touch… this lovely wildflower is one of the most difficult plant that I’ve had to recreate so far.

A bridal bouquet – the perfect design!

After so many years of creating paper flowers bridal bouquets I can say that I know how to master this field. I enjoy making projects that are creative and complex, with lots of flower types, sizes and shapes. This beauty is an example of my vision for the perfect bridal bouquet!

It has color and texture, the size is just right and the flower mix is incredible.

You can discover so many flowers but, I think the main attraction is the red Pink Ice Protea and the Frittilaria Tulips which give the color touch. The anemone, butterfly ranunculus and dogwood ad the sweetness and delicacy.

In the end, the delicate english garden roses ad the romantic touch, all the small filler flowers give texture and the variety of leaves complete the design!
