The paper peony was the showstopper in our paper wedding bouquet. Don’t get us wrong—all the flowers were petal-perfect. But this one? This is the one that brought paper tears to our eyes.
Print out this flower template (PDF), then cut out the pattern size you want to make.
Trace the petal patterns on your favorite color Post-it® Notes. Trace 25-30 petals for the large peony, and 20-25 for the small peony.
Once it’s dried, cut a 6-10 inch piece of wire. Poke it into the bottom of the blossom. Use glue to secure it.
Wrap that wire up with Scotch® Masking Tape then follow with green floral tape, and you’re done!
Wow. That is one lovely peony. Pro tip: add variety by using all the different sized templates. A bouquet mix of small, medium, and large flowers is simply stunning.
