We’ve been getting more requests lately to make larger flowers that you can use as wall decor. So here you go! Last month Meagan made these frosted paper dahlia medallions. And now for our April collection she has designed these jumbo crepe paper poppies in three different sizes — small, medium, and large.
Because all of the shapes are large, this is an easy project to cut by hand. But you can always use our SVG file with your Maker or Silhouette 4.
Are you having trouble? Feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you out.
I would like to try hanging these, or maybe your new peonies from this month’s new member make, in a window but I am thinking that the back sides of the flowers wouldn’t be great to look at. So I have two questions: (1) how would you hang these if you were to suspend them with monofilament or something like that? – and – (2) How could I make the back sides look, if not as beautiful as the fronts, at least not unpleasant to look at? Thank you – I love everything you make!
You can use large leaves to cover the back of the cardboard rounds. Green leaves are always gorgeous. Share pics when you are done! 🙂
I’m going to try this with some double sided crepe and I’ll post pictures once complete
Yes we would love to see!
Lia, thank you so very much! I do not know how I missed it when I printed out the templates
No worries at all! It’s always good to double-check in case we missed something 🙂
Question: GM! I am working on the Jumbo Poppy. There’s a step not included in materials. The photo instructions state; 6 inch wire fold in half. Then press both ends thru cardboard.? What size cardboard and how thick?
Next step is to glue crepe circle over both sides of the cardboard with tacky glue or mod podge.
I don’t have the pattern for the circle either but imagine could figure that out once cardboard dimensions were identified.
Thank you so much!
Hi Alice! Check the PDF for the cardboard and circle crepe paper templates 🙂
I use a large quilting mat which works well too
Has anyone tried this but with darker coloured crepe? Would the dried modge podge leave whitish residue marks on the crepe???
Hi Erin! Mod podge dries clear on darker colors of crepe.
I am impatiently waiting for the Mod Podge to dry! I do have a question – I am new to making paper flowers. What sort of surface do you use to create? I have been using my quilt cutting mat but now I have hot glue blobs and stains form the crepe paper… I’d like a better idea!
We have a large roll of kraft paper attached to the craft table! Also look for a silicone craft mat– they are great for hot glue (the blobs come off so easily when dry)!
