Paper Poppies – creating the parchment version of Papaver nudicaule, more commonly known as the Iceland Poppywas a colourful delight.
The gentle, bright hues were a treat to work with. Following this commission, we’ve added these to our Freshly Found repertoire.
We are Durban based, and are able to courier our paper flowers all over South Africa and many countries in the world. See our paper proteas, paper roses and other paper flowers on the Freshly Found website.
Paper poppies are not new. A poignant poem written about the soldiers who died in World War 1 Trench Warfare in the Poppy Fields of Flanders was the inspiration. Since 1921 they have been worn as Remembrance for soldiers who have lost their lives in war.
