I really liked how these paper poppies turned out. Not sure what to recommend for paper because I used paper I had saved for years that were wrapped around a bouquet of flowers. I knew it would come in handy some day! : ) I think in the tutorial, she recommends tissue paper which would also work nicely. Enjoy this tutorial from Little Miss Crafts. The only difference I did with mine, was that I used black marker to bring out the black center of the flower. These made for a perfect topper for my fruit kabobs. Let us know if you try these out and send us some pictures if you use them to adorn your next CeLeBration.
