Paper Poppy

Today at school I was working on some sample projects for some upcoming Veterans Day projects. While I was at it I created a Paper Poppy. I volunteered to help with decorations for our Veterans Day program, so I thought paper poppies would be a great touch.

Since I'm finally an art teacher again, I have great supplies on hand for doing stuff like this. So, I created a template that included 4 petals. I cut out two of those and glued them together. I used a circle with fringed edges as the center, and a little hint of colored pencil in the center. I love how this turned out. I will be making several more to use for decor in the gym for our program. 

I'm so thrilled to be teaching art again, and getting to use my creative inspiration for things like this!! And I'm very proud to be able to help pay tribute to our nation's veterans in some way.
