Step 1

Print the peonies template onto the text weight paper you got. You may choose whatsoever color your prefer for your flower. Tips: use grey or lighter printing ink to create a soft look.

Step 2 & 3

Fringe layers and trim all petals as per template. Make sure you group them together (according steps) to avoid confusion which petal goes for which sides.   

Step 4, & 5

Now, when done, trim 6 inch folded floral wire, and glue at the end of layer 1 onto the trimmed wire.

Step 6 & 7

This is the simple task, roll onto the wire & glue them as you go. Fold the other layers 2 & 3 like Fan (fan fold) with 4 folds.

Step 8 & 9

After this glue layers 2 and then 3 around the wire stem, matching the height of layer 1 earlier. Using the edge of your scissors, curl layer 4 petals until satisified.

Step 10 - 12

Glue tabs into center to form a cup shape. This is for the outer flower cup layer. Then, glue all layer 4 petals onto outside of the petal layers. Continue to curl the layer of 5 petals using the edge of scissors and glue them onto center. Yippie! You're almost done!

Step 13 - 14

Lastly, wrap wire stem with florist wire until end. Trim stem and curl wire as needed to finish. There you go, your very own DIY lovely Peony!
