Hi friends! I have a Sizzix tutorial to share today, made with new Favorite Things dies by Brenda Walton. I made a big poppy and a gift bag. My mom got the poppy when she visited us a couple of weeks ago.
This is probably the largest flower I ever made, and it will be a great piece of home decor or gift to someone who loves flowers. I used Sizzix Paper Leather for the flower, which makes it very durable, and it will last a long time. You can also make the flower with other papers, such as tissue papers (check out the tissue flowers from my Alphabet Sewing Box tutorial for an idea). If it is made from tissue paper, it will be quite a bit smaller. I forgot to measure if before giving it away, but I think it is about 5 in in diameter, maybe 5.5.
These are the three sets of Thinlits dies that I used: Frames & Embellishments, Mini Favor Bag, and the Large Poppy.
Fold the petals out and apply yellow paint with a palette knife to the stamens.
When the paint is dry, shape the petals until you are happy with your flower. You could also make some more leaves than what I did.
Here's a close-up of the poppy flower. It could also look great made from patterned paper, and it doesn't have to be a poppy.
Thank you so much for visiting today!!
