Edible Wafer Paper
Peony Scrapbooking Project
The peony has existed in human folklore for thousands of years. In China, it represents riches, honor and high social status. In the West, the peony symbolizes boldness.
You will be creating this beautiful flower with wafer paper in this project.
Pre-Prep: You will want to use the dies listed under supplies needed and cut them out ahead of time in wafer paper of your choice. You can use plain white wafer and use the dusts to color it or one of the many patterned or colored options found in our online shop.
You can purchase these products online. There are many scrapbook machines on the market. If you're an avid scrapbooker, you can use the machine you already own.

Creating the Peony
If you live in a climate that dries out your wafer paper use a little bit of piping gel to condition it prior to shaping.
Shape the petals and give them movement by rolling them slightly on the back of a paint brush.
Add color dust in the center of your flower.
Next outline the petals with color.
Add a pearl dust to the middle of the petals.
Create a disc out of modeling chocolate or fondant and add piping gel glue.
Start with your largest petals.
Add gel glue between layers.
Layer until you have your last petal.
Twist your last petal together to create a center out of it.
Attach with gel glue and your done!
