Beautiful Paper Blooms: Large Paper Peonies

With warmer weather all around us, now feels like the perfect time to make paper peonies!

Giant peonies or small peonies are perfect for a wedding backdrop, baby shower decor, or Easter events. So let’s start teaching you how to make paper peonies!


Cut about a 1.5 inch to 2-inch slit in the bottom center edge of the petal. Add a touch of glue on one edge and slightly overlap.

Use your dowel or marker to roll the one side inwards, and the opposite side backward.

This time curl BOTH sides inward, towards you. Do this for all the medium, small, and extra small petals.

With your 8-sided base begin placing your extra-large petals, one petal for each side of the base.
