Thank you, Sonja ❤

The peony is almost dried and almost white, but it made its part for the staging. The picture is an important part of this ephimeral cookie art because the cookies keep "living" through pics.

The two cookie rings just fit one into another, like the ring and the round cookie in my latest tutorial. The "micro" gap between them allows room for the Sugarveil lace, like it happens for the fabric in a real embroidery hoop. Actually here there was some more room to insert the wafer paper stripe (which is the stem that keeps togheter all the flower of the floral wreath), but the ring cookies were already glued togheter with some thick royal icing and the wafer paper stripe wasn't steamed otherwise it would have been hard to insert it in the gap.

I've found that steaming the wafer paper to make the flowers, the leaves, and the "threads" was just great and better than using water, because it allows to make the wafer paper flexible without making the mistake of adding too much water and dissolve it.

Beautiful design Manu!! Great set and your attention to detail is always so well done

Thank you Carol, you are always kind. 

P.S. Did you see the discolored peony in the corner?

No, I hadn't noticed the discolored peony! It doesn't look discolored to me...it's a very pretty soft pink. I love your idea of steaming the wafer paper. It never crossed my mind to shape the paper that way but it's perfect!!!! Awesome idea and result

The creation of your bobbin cookie is ingenious! I love it and so simple to make with cookie cutters and flower fondant punch that I already have. I also love your idea of using 2 cookie "rings"  glued together with a strip of colored wafer paper that's been steamed. Such creative thinking Manu! Love it so much . Thank you for all the detail in the explanation and pictures of the project. That's always super helpful ♥♥.
