DIY Paper Peony

DIY paper peony Peonies are my favorite flowers. They are a little wild looking, yet so elegant. There are so many varieties in both shape and color. I have been brewing on how to make a paper peony from something other than crepe paper, which is no easy task. Here is what I came up with. I picked a text weight paper called Strawberry from Paper Source to make this flower. Friday I will show you some different ways you might use this Peony for Mother’s Day. ~Lia

  1. Love this, but you lost me at Step 10. Not sure of the process of glueing tabs to center………

    • The layer 4 petals have 2 slits indicated for you to cut. Cross the outer 2 pieces over the center piece and glue. This will form a cup like petal.
