For the last couple of months I have been busy making paper flowers to construct pomanders for summer and fall weddings. These two, for example, were made for Kim, who wanted flowers in burgundy, shades of rich red, and with highlights in yellow and orange, based on this paper flower sphere.
For the roses I used shimmer papers, polka-dot prints, solid reds and nicely inked each petal to give it a better definition.
The orange details are tiny flowers scattered between the roses, and the dashes of yellow are represented in the handmade butterflies with crystals.
