When my daughter said she loved peonies...I replied "No problem." I knew there just HAD to be a 3-D peony in at least one of the Cricut cartridges. Cricut did not disappoint me. There are two options for a 3-D peony flower. I selected the Giant Flowers version since it looked like I could close the buds a little more. My daughter likes when they are just budding and look closer to a ball. The suggested size was 10.3". I selected 8" figuring it would come out more like a life size peony. Uhhhh...WRONG! These flowers are HUGE! It assembled fairly quickly and easily and looked like we wanted it to, just GIANT. Then we had a light bulb moment, literally. The middle of the flower creates the perfect home for a mini battery operated tea light. Voila, the perfect pretty night light to add to a table top.
My example was the prototype. I can't wait to make another one in a soft pink color or with Anna Griffin cardstock.
