  1. Now make the first poppy: Place the lid with the diameter of 2.6" on the dark blue crepe paper and trace all around it. Cut out the circle. Repeat so that you will have four dark blue circles. Fold each circle in half, and then in half again, so that you will have four quarter circles. Glue the four quarter circles onto the paper wreath, so that you will have a full circle again. Add a rhinestone to the centre of the poppy and open the petals of the poppy to create curved petals.
