Or Dahlias perhaps... I think this flower I made looks more like a zennia than a dahlia. Ever since I started making these paper flowers, I've been iching to try making it in red to look like this.
My creation came out more orange than red, but I still like it. I started off with 4 large flower layers of Real Red, 3 large flower layers of Pumpkin Pie (water colored red) and 2 small flowers for a Pumpkin Pie center. Next time I'll do a Summer Sun center with the tips yellow and the inside orange, only 1 large Pumpin Pie flower and the rest red. If you're totally confused...don't worry, I will try to find the blog where thye directions were and post it here.
