My closest friends and family members know that my favorite color is blue. I like to see it in my New England sky, on my clothes, shoes, accessories, make-up, furniture, walls, wedding details, everywhere...
So, it's no wonder that I started making blue paper flowers.
The one above is made from turquoise blue crepe paper with some wire and 3 pearl beads. It's perfect as a gift box topper, wedding decoration, or as a simple flower-in-a-little-vase centerpiece for a favorite coffee table or a bookshelf.
And speaking of blue flowers, some of you might remember the one with LED lights I made this winter. It's currently in our bedroom, sitting in a vase next to our bed. I like to turn the LEDs on every once in a while and let it cast a lovely blue light.
We have a few of these flowers, so they make a pretty bunch :)
Some might also remember my large light-blue paper flowers which are adorable as wall art. I recently created something similar to these - a flower you can hang on your walls, a one-of-a-kind striped blue paper flower.
There's something special about blue flowers, isn't it?
As my husband and I are planning our move to a new apartment, I keep collecting swatches in a million shades of blue - each an inspiration on its own. We'll have plenty of white, too, so our blue paper flowers can still find a nice spot on our new walls...
Have a great weekend :)
