STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Giant Flowers - Cut layers @ 2.75" using your main Peony Flower color
<Peony> cut 2, <PeonyLyr1> cut 6, <PeonyLyr2> cut 4, <PeonyLyr3> cut 4,
cut the stamens using color of choice
cut 1
Decide on what leaf you like best, I have used Leaf 2 cut @ 3"
<Leaf2> - cut 2 or however many you wish to use.
Assemble Peony
<Peony> X 2 = join the 2 together, this makes the centre of the flower. The tiny slits in the base allow the other petals to attach to form the flower.

Take each of the remaining Petals <PeonyLyr1> <PeonyLyr2> <PeonyLyr3>, gently pull each petal together, slightly overlapping and glue (this gives the petal shape).

Then build the flower starting with the 6 x Peony1, then 4 x Peony2 x 4 Peony3 and poke into the tiny slits of the 2 Peony petals you started with.

Take the 2 stamen pieces and join together in a ring and poke in the centre of the Peony (I glued the stamens in with a hot glue gun) . I also attached a red piece of card stock under the flower, I didn't want the designer paper showing through. Gently shape/bend the petals to suit.
I attached my finished Peony to a Gift Bag made using Plantin SchoolBook {tallball tab = Bag}

See attached CCR Project File (also included in file, extra circles are also included for layering of designer paper)

I also made a gift box, filled with scented candles. Embellish as you wish. So many wonderful uses for Giant Flowers, love love love it.
