3D Peony Frame

Good morning all! Today is my day to post on the DCWV blog as part of the DCWV Social Media Design Team.  I made this beautiful piece of wall art to share with you.
Here are is how I created it.  The papers I used are from DCWV's 12"x18" DIY Project Stack: Large Flowers.  Instead of using the templates included in that stack, I opted to use an SVG file.  I cut the large peony flower from Fleurette Bloom's Lush Flowers set on my Silhouette Cameo.  I increased the size to cover most of the 8x10 frame.  
The flower pieces I spritzed with water on both sides and crumpled/shaped them the way I wanted them to look.  Since the paper is double sided, it looks great no matter what side is showing!  Once they were dry, I assembled them using hot glue between the layers.
To prep the frame, I removed the cardboard backing and the tabs that were holding it in place.  I hot glued the glass into the frame.
I used E6000 glue to adhere the leaves and flower to the glass frame.
For the final touch, I cut the word "Bloom" out of black vinyl and added it to the bottom of the glass.
Once again, here is the finished product!
I hoped you have a wonderfully crafty day!
