Pretty Paper Peonies

Okay, since I can't grow pretty pink peonies in my zone...

Then I'll just have to make some.

I made these pretties out of tissue paper.

They were so much fun to make.

A sweet alternative, don't you think?



Wishing you all a beautiful and creative day.





Hugs and Kisses,

You are very sweet, making your own peonies, that is clever. I think you can't grow tulips either eh? Those peonies will not wilt or need new water or trimming, you are a smart girl.
Wishing you a sunny day, we are here with clouds and 54 degrees, still cold, I bet you I can grow peonies, will have to look for them at the local nurseries, seems like everybody likes them but I have never seen one before.
Have a great day!

That's the perfect attitude to have...I can't grow them, so I'll make them instead! :D They turned out so pretty & are the perfect shade of pink.

They are beautiful! I remember making paper flowers for hours when I was about 10 years old. Back then, any kinda tissue would do. It's amazing what you can create with these days. :) Have a great weekend. Tammy

Ana - In your previous post you mentioned you'd never actually seen a real peony. I bet Whole Foods has them in their cut flower section - they do where I live.
Your paper peonies are so pretty...very inovative. I think paper flowers have a special charm all their own.
Blessings, L

What a great and pretty alternative. Your peonies are lovely and you won't have any problems with ants either, which can happen when you bring in real peonies from the garden.
Hugs, Cindy

I thought they were real. Could have fooled me. They are beautiful.
