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.

Love your work, directions and patterns. I’ve been isolated on the Southern Oregon coast since the first week of March. I’m hoping to share what I’ve learned from you and others with some local children and other community members.
I have a project idea for everyone. Paper flower bouquets for hospital patients who can’t have flowers in their rooms. COVID 19 patients, cancer patients, etc.
I’m sure you’re already doing things for your community. You are an inspiration.
I need so many materials I’m overwhelmed. I want to make the California Poppies, Hydrangeas, and many others. I need everything! Only have one small pack of your heavy crepe paper but know I need the light crepe paper, floral wire, tape, etc.
How should I begin to get myself outfitted to start making your lovely flowers? I’ve made some tissue paper roses but that’s it so far. I recently purchased a Cricut Maker and a Cricut Joy. Still learning all about them.
My brother has terminal cancer and recently had bone marrow and other essential things removed, treated and put back in. He is a great gardener but cannot have flowers around him. He literally has no immune system due to the treatments. I’d love to make him some great flowers for his birthday in October. The poppies, roses, he loves orchids, and many others.
I’m a physically disabled retired person with a lot of time on my hands. No heavy lifting so this is great.
I hope I’m not becoming a nuisance, this is my second inquiry message.
Hi Laura! Thank you for your kind words, it means a lot! We are so inspired by members like you that want to give back and share the joy of crafting with others. I’m so glad you got yourself a Maker– that will make your Hydrangea flowers go much faster since there are a TON of petals 🙂 Please continue to share with us your thoughts, and creations!!
