Paper Poppies tutorial at 30 Minute Crafts

In the past, I used to make a lot of cards. I don’t make them as much anymore, but card making supplies can be used to make other things – like these fun paper poppies! These paper poppies are made using die-cut shapes that are very simply put together. You can whip up some paper poppies of your own in just a few minutes! And you don’t have to stick to orange – use whatever colors you like!

Here is what you need to make your own poppies:
Sizzix Framelits Die(for the die cut shapes)
Green Floral Wire
Washi Tape
Scissors
Thumbtacks
Pliers

Cut out 6 of the large shapes from the Sizzix die. Then follow the steps below to cut a notch in the bottom of each petal, and secure with washi tape.
