- Cardstock (Gray)
- Artificial Flower Center
- Artificial Stamen
- Artificial Stem
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Die-cut out of gray cardstock on the fold (slightly overhanging the die edge per package instructions) four large petals from the Peony set. Repeat to die-cut out of gray cardstock 4 medium petals, 15 small petals and 2 flower centers from the Peony set.
- Curl the petals. To curl the tip of a petal, insert the tip into the slot of the Crease & Curl Tool. Slide the tool to the part of the petal where you want the curl to begin. Curl and shape as desired. (Hint: While curling the tip of a petal, pull the tool upward and off the tip, not toward your body, with a quick motion. This creates the dimension of the curl.) Adhere the flower layers together from the bottom up, alternating the petals with hot glue.
- Adhere the flower center with hot glue. Adhere an artificial stamen to the center of the flower and an artificial stem to the flower with hot glue.
- Place the flower inside a vase.
