HI everyone!

I just finished the August Flower of the Month!  I love it soooo much 🙂  I was inspired by the Wizard of Oz Poppy Field photo below.

It was a blast designing this one.  I decided to make a basic red Poppy and I used red vellum.  YES…vellum.  The final look it very realistic.  Of course you can also use a 65 lb. red card stock and achieve a nice look.  I’m a big fan of the vellum though.

What you need to make this flower…

 

2     2″ red vellum or card stock circles

1     1/2″ yellow circle

8     3/4″ yellow card stock circles for the stamens.  I used the stamen die from the Die-namics Prima Donna Petals die set.

Inks:  black, green, Ranger Archival Plum or substitute with Red Geranium or Adirondack Cranberry.

Sponge Daubers

Quick Dry Liquid Glue

Scissors

Optional:  Paper Molding Tools

Here is a step by step video tutorial for you on how I made my Poppy.  I also made another poppy using white vellum and a slightly different center.  The white one is also very pretty.  You can Google POPPY and find amazing pictures for inspiration.  I hope you go crazy and try these for yourself.  Experiment and share the love.  I’d love to see what YOU did with this design.  Please send me a link of your flower in the comments!
