These magnificent handmade paper flowers look exactly like Anemone Bordeaux flowers, and they are quite easy to make. These striking flowers feature velvety, wine-red petals with a vibrant purple eye and a powdery dome of black stamens in the center. They look great both individually and in bouquets, or in combination with other types of paper flowers with stems.

Using this tutorial you can also make any variety of anemones, by changing the color of the paper and PanPastel. Feel free to create your unique design!

Making these paper anemone flowers is simple and fast. Though it might be a challenge for first timers to make the central part of the flower, as it is quite small in size. No worries – a bit of practice, and it works out just fine. Just follow our step-by-step video instruction below.

You can use a cutting machine or print the templates and cut them manually (download them by clicking on the link below). The templates are designed for 9 cm / 3.5 inch diameter anemones, but you can change the settings in your cutting machine or a printer to create flowers of different sizes.
