Giant Peony Papercraft Flowers Perfect for Backdrops and Decor!

Brightly colored paper flowers cut out of cardstock and hot glued together.
 Giant Peony Flowers!
I love paper crafts.  Paper is very economical and a great way to make a big statement.  These finished flowers are big, a foot in diameter!  They are bright colored and very easy to make.  And the best part is they only require 3 supplies.
These are beautiful!  They make a great photo or party backdrop!  They are gorgeous as decorations!
They would also be perfection as a big bouquet for a loved one for Valentine's Day!
You will need:
Cardstock Paper in variety of colors
Hot glue/gun
Scissors

I did these with my daughter and my 2 adorable nieces.  I just 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.  Put on a movie or some fun music and let tweens help cut the paper petals. 
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!
