I realized earlier this week that back when I posted about my Tissue Paper Peonies I left y'all hangin' with this photo:
What did that crazy bleach-dipped butterfly-like thing become? Well, once it emerged from its cocoon it became what I like to call a peony pom (that's a pom that looks kinda like a peony).
This will probably be my first and last peony pom, because as I mentioned before in the tissue paper peony post, once you dip the tissue paper in bleach it becomes all stuck together and fragile, which made pulling the many layers of tissue paper apart VERY difficult and time-consuming. Beautiful, yes, but too much work for me. I think I'll just stick with standard poms from now on. :-)
