'Festiva Maxima' Paper Peony

'Festiva Maxima' Paper Peonies

Have you admired these large, white-with-a-touch-of-deep-pink double peony forms? In paper I will teach you how to make them using four different petal sets of 60 gram crepe paper on a base of sturdy 180 gram crepe paper. This ensures this large, fluffy, much-admired cut flower remains in paper as it should: fluffy, flamboyant, and forever! Take your botanical sculpture skills to a new level with Flower and Jane 'Festiva Maxima' Peonies!

This course, and the supply list, are to make two paper peonies at a time.
