Carte Fini is very excited to welcome back Ms. Tiffanie Turner of papelsf and corner blog with a spectacular creation that is an absolute delight and wonderful way to usher in this new season….thank you Tiffanie for your artistry, your splendid presentation!
Hi everyone! I am so happy to be back as Carte Fini's featured artist, sharing a project that is very close to my heart. I created these "closed" peonies as part of my giant paper peony piñata tutorial last year. There was one innocently hanging in a tree with the other larger, more open peonies. When wedding season arrives, everyone should have some giant flower love hanging at their next party.....or wedding!
Great peony colors include from left to right: #570 (pink suede), #548 (baby pink) and my new favorite #577 (french vanilla). For center stamens try #566 (lime pulp) or #576 (goldenrod).
It really is a spectacular piece when it is finished, isn't it? This one measures 24" across by 13" deep, but it is very easy to go bigger or smaller, just by enlarging or reducing your base and petal sizes.
