Jumbo Peony Flowers
"Learn how to make jumbo peony flowers from paper. You can use these gorgeous flowers as a backdrop for a party or celebration. Gather tools and materials. To make 1 large flower, you will need 16 8.5×11 for petals, 1 8.5×11 for center. For 1 medium flower, 13 8.5×11 for petals, 1 8.5×11 for center. For 1 small flower, 3 8.5×11 for petals, 1 8.5×11 for center. For leaves, 3 8.5×11 to make the two leaves. Cut paper according to template notes using scissors or a cutting machine. Fold the center piece in half. Roll the center piece and use hot glue to hold. Using the curling tool curl all of the petals. Glue three of the small petals to the base of the center in rotation. Continue gluing the remaining small petals around the flower in layers of three. Repeat step 7 with the medium sized petals. To finish the flower glue the six large petals evenly around the flower in layers of three. Use the curling tool to shape and curl leaves. Use hot glue to attach a wire to the back of the leaves."
