Jumbo Peony Flower Backdrop

Perhaps the walls of your home could use a little pop! Well never fear, Lia Griffith and Paper-Papers are here to help turn your space into a summer sanctuary. Today we have a flower backdrop made out of paper peonies. This project is made with three types of our paper: POPTONE, Stardream metallic, and basic. With this combination, we get the sheen of the POPTONE and metallic, while adding that subtle basic flair for the interior of the peony.

To create your own jumbo peony flower backdrop, simply gather the tools and materials listed below. Next, scroll down to download either the SVG or PDF files, then cut. Finally, follow along with Lia’s photo tutorial on Liagriffith.com to learn how to assemble your paper jumbo peony backdrop. Don’t forget, you can find all of the POPTONE, metallic, and basic papers we used for this project here.

    Question! When I download the SVG file, the center does not have lines for the machine to cut…. so it is just one solid rectangle. Is there something I’m doing wrong?

      Hi Mindy, the peony is one of our all-time favorite flowers and we are thrilled that you are going to make it.When you look at the SVG file you will not see the lines to cut because it is a compound path which changes the shape to a solid color, once you upload the file to design space you will see the lines to cut!

    Love your peony paper flower. I printed off the pattern and read your instructions but I am a little confused. Not sure what the grid work is for. Also the instructions say to fold the center – nothing is labeled as center. So I went to this page for the free tutorial on the peony but there isn’t one. I just purchase your curling tool, package of crepe paper and the book. Would like to find the tutorial on line to make the peony. Please advise. Thanks

      Hi Alex! Can you send an email to hello@liagriffith.com with more details about the problem you’re having? We can help if it’s an issue with the file, but you will need to reach out to Silhouette’s customer service if it’s with the software or machine.
