Japanese anemones made from crêpe paper
Make different Japanese anemones from crêpe paper – a larger anemone with six petals and a smaller anemone with four petals. Play with glitter at the end of petals or stamens for a sparkle effect.

1 Print out the template sheet, which you can find as a separate PDF on this page. First, cut out the parts for the biggest anemone with six leaves.
2 Stretch out the oval piece of crêpe paper until you get a more rounded shape – and attach the polystyrene ball to a floral pick.
7 Glue the leaves to the stamens with a glue gun. Start with three petals and place them in a staggered pattern around the ball.
9 Glue the long cover piece firmly around the stem. Starting from the top, cover the area where the petals are attached with glue. Then twist the piece diagonally down over the stem, glueing it down as you do so.
12 Make the flower in the same way as the large one (follow steps 2 to 6). But remember that the petals on the small flower should be spread in one layer – and not in two layers as with the large one.
