This month, we are focused on ways to bring the great outdoors to you. So we thought some wildflowers would be a great addition to our June Craft Collection. Poppies are a simple flower to make, and Meagan has designed some beautiful crepe paper California poppies that are perfect for beginners.
You can cut these poppies by hand with our printable template, or use your Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 with our SVG file. Once you have all your pieces cut, follow along with our video tutorial below!
Considering how delicate poppies are, crepe paper is a natural choice when crafting these flowers. However, we have also made a felt version of this flower that we love. And much like these crepe paper California poppies, they also have that open, windblown look that poppy flowers have.
Another thing we love about these crepe paper California poppies is how vibrant they are! If you love bright colors and cheerful-looking flowers, some other great flowers to make are our ombre crepe paper tulips or are crepe paper sunflowers. Of course you can also make whatever flower you prefer in the same mango and poppy colors from our extra-fine line of crepe paper.
When you’re ready to craft your crepe paper California poppies, gather the tools and materials listed here. Then download our flower pattern at the end of the post and follow along with our video tutorial.
