Creative Cafe Try A Trend: Simple Anemone Flower Video Tutorial

Today, Debi Adams will be using her SR-037 Simple Anemone Contour™ Steel Rule Die from her Quite Contrary Collection to show you how to recreate a bloom for YOU in a few easy steps.

  1. Adhere mini Styrofoam ball to floral wire.
  2. Wrap black tissue paper around ball and secure in place with floral tape.
  3. Cut a 1½ x 1” strip of black tissue paper. Snip longest edge with 5 bladed scissors about ½” down and continue until entire strip has been done. Wrap strip around Flower and attach to center base with floral tape or hot glue.
  4. Die-cut smaller Anemone Flower from 14 layers of tissue paper. (These all can be cut at once).
  5. Put two sheets of each Flower together to form each petal. Begin attaching petals to base of Flower center using floral tape, pinching edge of petals if necessary and stretching floral tape while twisting Flower. Continually add petals until desired shape is formed.
  6. Die-cut Leaves from Anemone die and attach to Flower using floral tape. When finished, twist floral tape on down to end of stem.

Tip: For additional color, try embellishing the tissue paper with a marker that is slightly darker than the tissue paper. Consider using various containers to showcase your Flower. Here we have used a bowl, slice of wood and a peat pot with a nest.
