Do you like peony flowers? Woluld you like to make the same one?

Discover our top tricks and tips for creating lifelike blooms!

One of my favourite flowers are peonies and it is so sad that they have a flowering period of literally a couple of weeks and that’s all. You can’t enjoy the beauty of these stunning flowers all year round. So I experimented for a long time and finally I nailed it! Alright, now I can spill the beans and share my experience with you, along with all my tips and tricks.

Let’s start to make Peony Flower!

The first step – cut all the details using a cutting machine or snip ’em out with scissors.

I saved my project with the recommended size for cutting ’cause it gives you a result closer to the real deal, ya know? But hey, you can totally scale it up if you wanna. But, if you’re thinking of making a smaller flower, swap out two of thin flower centers stripes for a bigger one, ’cause otherwise, you’ll run into some cutting issues.

So at the top image I showed you two variants of coloring paper peony flower. You can use already colored cardstock or paint up some plain white paper with watercolor paints, pastel or etc.

Paper Peony Pieces


In addition, in this tutorial I will show you the way I used watercolor paints to coloration all the pieces of the flower.

First I used a several different green shades to whip up some gorgeous leaves and sepals. The sepals I coloured in the both sides.

Secondly I colored both sides of stamens for maximum vibrance and similarities with real flowers.

I added a bit of pink right in the middle of the flower petals to amp up the beauty factor and give the bloom a soft, rosy hue.

Take 3 or 4 flower wires  (I talk about wire 1 mm in diameter and 12” length). Connect them together using floral tape.

Leave about 0.5” wire without tape from one side (you will glue there flower center stripes).
