One of my favorite scenes when driving through California is the wild poppies along the side of the highway. We have made crepe paper poppies in shades of bright orange before. But it was just recently that my eyes caught the quieter version of the California state flower, which they call Pink Champagne. So I gave myself the challenge to make these frosted paper California poppies.
And now that I have made these beauties, I’m sharing the tutorial with you so you can craft your own version!
These delicate frosted paper California poppies are a perfect flower to make with the cutting machine. They have detailed centers and leaves so our text weight frosted paper gives them a pink sky sunset glow. You can even add a gradation with the pale gold PanPastel as I demonstrate in the photo tutorial below.
When finished, you can arrange your frosted paper California poppies into a bouquet as a gift, pop them on top of a wrapped gift, or pot them to create some pretty home decor.
