Another one of my favorite paper flowers that I created last year is this orange paper poppy. I made two dozen of them to decorate my daughter’s 18th birthday party last year mixing it with a black and white French theme. As one of my favorites and loving the happy orange color, I have since used these poppies for paper brooches, to wear in my hair and of course to add that special touch on top of gifts. This PDF includes the watercolor print for both the front and back of this flower. I find this style works best with a laser printer and am delighted to find that FedEx Office can print this for you for around $1 a flower. Have them print it onto their regular printer paper, text weight. The laser printer gives a nice sheen to the final poppy. Once you have your print, just follow the step-by-step tutorial below to create this cheerful bloom. Cheers! ~ Lia
