Project Cut Files
<Peony> cut 2, <PeonyLyr1> cut 6, <PeonyLyr2> cut 4, <PeonyLyr3> cut 4,
<Leaf2> - cut 2 or however many you wish to use.
<Peony> X 2 = join the 2 together, this makes the centre of the flower. The tiny slits in the base allow the other petals to attach to form the flower.
Take each of the remaining Petals <PeonyLyr1> <PeonyLyr2> <PeonyLyr3>, gently pull each petal together, slightly overlapping and glue (this gives the petal shape).
Then build the flower starting with the 6 x Peony1, then 4 x Peony2 x 4 Peony3 and poke into the tiny slits of the 2 Peony petals you started with.
Take the 2 stamen pieces and join together in a ring and poke in the centre of the Peony (I glued the stamens in with a hot glue gun) . I also attached a red piece of card stock under the flower, I didn't want the designer paper showing through. Gently shape/bend the petals to suit.
See attached CCR Project File (also included in file, extra circles are also included for layering of designer paper)
I also made a gift box, filled with scented candles. Embellish as you wish. So many wonderful uses for Giant Flowers, love love love it.
