paper poppy flower craft

This colorful Poppy Paper Flowe Craft is fun for all ages and makes a perfect addition to your Spring home decor!


To get started you just need a few supplies you likely already have laying around the house:

  1. Colored cardstock paper– red, yellow, black, and green.
  2. Scissors
  3. Craft glue
  4. Pencil – to trace the template
  5. Template

Step 1:

Prepare the patterns from the template by printing and cutting them out nicely. Trace the patterns on the selected colored cardstock papers and cut them out. For the 6 petals, I used red cardstock, green for the leaves, red for a big circle, black for the 2 other big circles, and yellow for the small circle. 3 petals are slightly smaller than the rest of the 3 petals. 

Step 2:

Take the 3 circles (2 black and 1 yellow) and cut thin and even fringe patterns around them.

Step 3:

Take the petals and cut 4-5 small (1 cm) slits along the top edge of the petals. Also cut a slit of 2 cm at the middle of the bottom edge of the petals. 

Step 4:

Apply glue on any one side of the bottom slit and overlap the other side of the slit on the top of the glued part. Overlap about a cm of both sides of the slits and press tightly to join the overlapped parts together.

Step 5:

Similarly, prepare the rest of the petals.

Step 6:

Take the red circle and place it on a flat surface and glue the 3 bigger petals near the edge of the circle, keeping even gaps between the 3 petals.

Step 7:

Glue the 3 other petals (second layer of petals) on the red circle but close to the center of the red circle, placing each of the second layer petals between the first layer petals.

Step 8:

Now glue any one of the black circles on the center of the flower and then glue the yellow circle on the black circle.

Step 9:

Take the last circle (the other black circle) and crumble the fringes towards the center to form a ball shape. Apply glue to secure the crumbled piece if required.

Step 10:

Glue the crumbled piece on the center of the yellow center from step 8. Glue the leaves at the bottom side of the flower and done!
