Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Die cut your Decorative Medallion Die using white cardstock. Using your Luggage and Tag die set, cut our your Celebrate tag. TIP: when stamping with Pigment ink you will have to let it dry or set with a heat gun before die cutting and coloring to avoid smudging. Using your Peony Bud and Blossom stamp set, stamp the small peony bud and using your Small Peony stamp set stamp the medium peony using Worn Lipstick. When your stamped images have dried, die cut with coordinating dies. Color your peonies in Pearlescent Coral and your leaves in Memento Pistachio. Using your mini mister lightly spray your flowers, shape using the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold, when dry just highlight the edges of your flowers with the Crimson Copper Ink. Shape your peony bud using your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. TIP: I like to use the metal stamen wire and curl them for added effect. I have done this on the outer flowers and the smaller flowers. I adhere my flower well in place and then using a skewer or a pen or a stylus handle (depending on the size of the curl required) I curl the wire around and skewer and slide off to give this beautiful curled wired effect. You can do this before you adhere your flower or when it is secured very well in place. Using 3 shaped flowers add 2 stamens to the centre, curl your wires, one to each side. Adhere to your peony bud so leaves are at the bottom.
Now you have all your elements done, you can complete your bonbonniere. Using your Designer Dries Clear adhesive, apply a little to a sponge and apply over the front of your bonbonniere box and adhere your Decorative Medallion die cut, when dry trim off the excess on the edges. Tie a bow and adhere in the top center, it is best to use a hot glue gun. Also using the hot glue gun adhere your flowers. Line up and adhere your "Celebrate" sentiment.
