Crepe paper poppy
Poppy is related to sleep and Morpheus, is a symbol of power, loyalty and pride.
Here is what you need:
- Red crepe paper
- Black crepe paper
- Green crepe paper
- A piece of cotton wool
- Metallic wire
First of all cut a rectangle 3” x 1,4” of black crepe paper and cut many fringes like it is shown in the image:
Make a hook at one end of the metallic wire and cover it with a piece of cotton wool, then cover the cotton with a piece of black crepe paper and secure it with a wire.
Stick the black rectangle around the ball to obtain the centre of the flower.
Glue all around the wire a stripe of green paper to create the stem.
You can create different flowers changing the inclination of the petals.
Which of the tree flowers do you prefer?
Poppy is my favorite, I think that deceives more the eye compared to other paper flowers.
