When I received my 12 Months of Martha box just a few days ago, I was blown away by all of the gorgeous spring party items. I am loving the pinks, blushes and corals right now and the goodies in this box all centered around this palette. These Vintage Girl cupcake wrappers with their scalloped edge became my center of attention and I knew I wanted to make a pretty spring bouquet to put on my desk. I have seen carnation looking blooms made from cupcake wrappers, but for these very special wraps I was seeing peonies! So I started with a peony-like ball center and made both blooms and buds. The look is so sweet and fresh and I am excited to share the tutorial of how to make these paper peonies with you. The materials list and the step-by-step instructions are below.
Make sure to come back Saturday morning as I am doing a giveaway for a Spring in Bloom party in a box. This box is full of gorgeous Martha Stewart Crafts party items as well as three paper punches. I think you are going to love it! ~ Lia
