Giant Peony Flowers!

 Giant Peony Flowers!
These are beautiful!
They make a great photo or party backdrop!
They would be gorgeous as decorations!
They would also be perfection as a big bouquet for a loved one for Valentine's Day!
I did these with my daughter and my 2 adorable nieces.
I drew out random teeth/heart shapes and told the girls to cut them out.
I used 3 sheets of 12 by 12 paper for each flower petals.
All graduating in color.
 Then they set out to cut them.
I used 6 large petals, 8 medium petals, 8 small petals and 5 tear drop shaped petals.
One round peice for the backing...about 8 inches wide.
And a long strip of yellow for the center.
 Cut the yellow to have a fringe edge.
 Roll it up and hot glue it in place.
 Curl the yellow fringes in.
Then glue the tear drop shaped petals around the center.
 Crinkle and glue the darkest/biggest petals on the circle.
 Layer the petals.
Add them where they look good.
Curl the edges to give it that 3D effects!
 Add the center with a bunch of hot glue.
 Repeat a million times!
These are so pretty and look great!  They add major impact in a room or as decor!
 I love decorating with paper!

Here's some more great paper flowers!
