Susan Tierney Cockburn is a specialist at making paper flowers. She has two books on the subject to her credit and now has teamed up with Sizzix to produce dies to maker her lovely flowers. I have to say they are really life like. I purchased the peony die from Cut at Home using my monthly coupon there. I will tell you straight out, I probably picked the hardest one to try first. They take time and patience. I wouldn't even show you my first attempt. Looked like a flower after a heavy rain! Anyway, I was more successful with the second which is shown below. I added a few extra petals to make it more full and I spritzed the finished flower with Mister Huey's Color Mist-Shine. It gives a really pearlized look. All the parts needed including the leaves are included in the die. You do need some basic tools and a rubber mat to shape the flowers on. There are quite a few videos on You Tube of Susan making her different flowers. Worth checking out if you're interested.
