Cheese Box Paper Peony by Amity Libby of Flower and Jane

There is a supply kit available from Petals and Pearls Design (sold separately).

In late winter of 2024 I had a burst of creativity and recorded a new short course I'm calling the Cheese Box Peony. It's a large paper peony, built on a recycled cardboard cheese box. The peony when done measures about a foot in diameter. It's made to hang on the wall! This course requires you to pace yourself and enjoy the process!
