DIY Paper Poppy
Here you can see a tutorial – making paper poppy yourself, how to make a poppy of crepe paper for candy bouquet with photos step by step. Let’s consider how to make the poppy flower, and then two variants of flower bud.
At first I want to show you some photos of poppy – this flower is strikingly beautiful!
How to make – DIY Paper Poppy flowers – tutorial
Real poppy flowers naturally can have from six to ten petals; we are going to make 6-petal poppy.
We will need crepe paper:
Cut a square 7×7 cm (2.7×2.7 inches) of black paper, and for petals – six 7×5 (2.7×1.9 inches) rectangle of red paper.
Next step – you should slit up black square parallel to the corrugations, not reaching far enough the edge about one cm. Then you can curl “stamens” into thin ducts. If you wish, you can also use green paper.
Cut red petal-shaped rectangles as on the photo.
Then stretch the upper edge.
Rumple and wrinkle the petals. This paper is very high quality, you can barely tear it, and so you can scrunch it unsparingly.
With the aid of nail scissors incise nattily edgings, about 2-3 snips per petal.
Take green paper and cut a rectangle of 3×11 cm (1×4.3 inches).
Twist it right in the middle once.
Hide in there a tasty candy.
Take our stamens and attach them to the center by using thread.
Attach the first petal.
Next to it – the second.
That is how a poppy with three petals looks like.
Our do-it-yourself Paper Poppy is ready!
However, you can go further and add some “naturalism”, though this step is recherche and you can skip it.
So take nail scissors and make the incisions in the bud on centre.
Then prepare black acrylic paint and brush № 1 or № 0.
And dye our incised little “tails”.
As a result, you get a poppy flower for sweet bouquet like this.
