Giant Paper Poppy

We really enjoyed making these Giant Paper Poppy Flower Decorations. This is where we found the template and watched a video of how it's done. The video is really quick though. So I took some photos to show you some of the steps.
I decided to print the template out at half
the original size so that we only needed
two sheets of paper for each flower.
We used chopsticks to help us form the folds. This is quite
tricky for little fingers. But Ruth did a great job of
cutting her petals out. Excellent fine motor and scissor practice.
Use a glue gun to make a cup with three of the petals and then add the remaining 4 around the outside.
Add the middle and a stem and there you have it.
