Remembrance Day Poppy Paperweights

"Remembering those brave men, women and animals that gave and continue to give so much for our freedom and safety".

The red Poppy is used as a symbol of both remembrance and hope for a peaceful future. I am sharing today paperweights that incorporate the red Poppy. All Poppies were sent to me for preserving inside the handmade resin paperweights, so that the owner can safely display their Poppies all year round.

The first paperweight contains four traditional paper Poppies sold by the Royal British Legion. These were sent to me for preserving inside a resin square paperweight.

The second paperweight contains an imitation fabric Poppy flower and cremated ashes, preserved inside a resin domed paperweight.

The final paperweight contains a hand-drawn Remembrance Day Poppy. This Poppy was drawn and coloured by my customer who then sent the flower to me for preservation.
