frosted paper Lorelei peony

Double the fun

Lorelei peonies are known for their double blooms and pink petals that transition in color. To create this effect for our frosted paper Lorelei peonies, we used two shades from our melon pack and colored the centers of our flowers with our favorite spray paint. 

These flowers look lovely on their own, or you can add them to an arrangement like we did. If you need some inspiration, we used fresh alstroemeria and eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s. You can always use fresh flowers and greenery for your paper flower bouquets — or make your own! 

We would love to see what you do with your frosted paper Lorelei peonies, so be sure to share them with us. As always, you can post them to our Facebook page for members, post on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia, or email them to us at

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tips: While the petal shape is simple enough to cut by hand, we do recommend using a cutting machine as there are a lot of petals for this flower. You can find the petal assembly order in our PDF template as well as our instructions. Once you’ve cut everything out, the petals are in a circle that you can easily shape, then slide onto the stem wire and glue into place.
