peach tissue paper poppies tutorial





you will need
peach tissue paper
pink water colour paints
glue
black tissue paper
black embroidery thread
white pen
kebab stick

 
first you will need to cut some petals like the photo above and then paint them with some paint on the edges or ends of the petals and place them to dry in an egg carton

 
whilst they are drying take a kebab stick and roll up a ball of tissue and then wrap tome black tissue over it and glue it to the stick in a ball shape.
then take some black embroidery thread and wrap it around then tie it in the middle and trim it and slide it behind the centre part, then start gluing the petals on. to finish the centre use a white pen to draw some lines
