Petal-by-Petal Mums

I've been admiring mums and other fall flowers these days, and I've started re-creating them with book paper petals lightly touched with archival ink.

Each petal is cut and formed by hand, then glued in place, layer upon layer. I added a hook at the back of the flower for hanging, decorating a gift box, or for attaching a future stem to display it in a vase, and a nice brown button for the center.

More paper mums are in the making...Maybe I'll use them in a bridal bouquet, or for decorating gifts.
