We are SO excited for our September Member Make challenge! You may have noticed it’s a little later than normal this month. Since we moved into a new office, we had to push it back a bit. But the good news is you can craft these jumbo crepe paper bomb peonies anytime. We are also doing an even BIGGER giveaway this time for those of you who join us live.
If you’re new here, these live craft workshops are a special perk we offer to members. So if you’re a member of our crafting community, you can join us live today at 11:00 a.m. PT with your exclusive link.
Also, if you didn’t catch it on our Instagram stories, we have a special guest this month! Our friend and paper flower artist Inga Ilze Peterson will be showing us how to make these jumbo bomb crepe paper peonies using her flower pattern and our crepe paper.
This Peony is the Bomb
It’s been a while since we’ve crafted a jumbo-sized flower! These jumbo crepe paper bomb peonies would be gorgeous as wedding decor or a pretty backdrop for a special event. Tell us how you’d use them by commenting below!
When you’re ready to get started, just download the flower template or flower SVG file at the end of this post. Then gather your tools and materials and follow along with our live video tutorial.
