This Remembrance Day, you can show your support by making a poppy out of paper. We made a step-by-step guide for those with little to no experience in crafts. You can make this poppy as big or as small as you want depending on how you would like to use it.

Supplies needed:

Step 2: Fold diagonally to make a triangle


Step 3: Fold at the centre to make a smaller triangle


Step 4: Fold again at the centre to make an even smaller triangle


Step 5: Draw a curve from the tip of the right angle of the triangle to the centre of the hypotenuse (yes, we paid attention in geometry class)


Step 6: Cut at the curve you drew


Step 7: Unfold!!


Step 8: Repeat to make a smaller second layer

Step 9: Glue the two poppies together at the centre
