Paper peonies, fritillaria, anemone, and jasmine. The one thing I really enjoyed about the mania was the sense of self-assuredness, as though I had a line straight to my gut instinct. I've always been an over thinker and second guesser. But maybe that drives all my tinkering? I'll need to think it over... #paperflowers #bipolardisorder

Paper peony detail. (I was trying to get at least a glimpse of the stamens on top- this guy is really hard to photograph!) #paperflowers

Paper peony. I've wanted to try one of these sorbet peonies for a long time. Something about the way that another layer of raspberry petals grows out of its shaggy white center reminds me of those sea cucumbers that disgorge their own guts to scare predators. In the Victorian language of flowers, peonies represent anger, so I dedicate this spiky, petal-vomiting sorbet peony to my local drive through Walgreens pharmacy. (Appropriately it took way longer than it should have to make.) #paperflowers #walgreens

Paper peony. (I know the tight balled up peonies are crowd pleasers but a sprawling, messy peony is my favorite!) #paperflowers
