There are so many pieces of peony, but I decided to use printer paper to make the Peony alike at this time. With my free template and step by step video tutorial, it’s so easy to have a paper Peony garden in your room now 🙂

This tutorial I made a long time ago, as a guest post and now it’s time to publish it on my site.

Step by step instruction to make paper Peony:

8 steps to make Peony paper flowers:

  1. Cut a paper strip of 2cm x20cm and color it to make the stamen. (In the video, I cut a 4cmx20cm but I had to trim out because it will not fit the sepal in the bottom of the flower).

  2. Cut and use your hands to soften the stamen.

  3. Glue the stamen with the wire gauge20

  4. Cut the petals with DreamyPosy’s FREE templates, color and soften it. The inner petals will have white space than the outer ones.

  5. Glue and shape the petals

  6. Glue the petals with the stamens accordingly as video instruction.

  7. Cut the sepal with the template and use the round stylus to shape it.

  8. Cut 2 tiny leaves and glue it with the sepal in the bottom of the flower.

4 steps to make paper Peony bud:

  1. Use facial tissue to round up a small ball and glue it with the wire gauge20

  2. Cut out the bud petals and sepal and use the round stylus to shape it

  3. Glue it together.

  4. Please remember to include 2 tiny leaves with the sepal.

3 steps to make paper Peony leaves:

  1. Cut the green paper along the template

  2. Glue it with floral wire gauge26

  3. Use the red pastel chalk/red watercolor to help the leaf more realistic

    PS. I forgot to ask you, are the templates smaller than the ones you actually make? The templates look a lot smaller than the flower looks while you are making it. Thanks again!

      Hi Marilyn, I tried to shoot my video in focus view so the petal might look larger. You can see my big fingers there (actually my hand is so small), lol. If you want to make larger flower, pls just adjust the template size in your printer setting. Thanks.

    I can’t seem to find the link to the template for the peony – it is not highlighted like other pages 🙁
