Peaches and Cream

The shape of the paper flowers for this bouquet are brand new - I came up with it while I was thinking of something else.

What started as a prototype of the flower from a piece of cream paper soon evolved into a sophisticated bloom that requires all of one's skills (well not all, but certainly some), such as:

  • paper punching,
  • cutting,
  • inking,
  • gluing,
  • folding,
  • wiring,
  • wrapping ...
The other flowers are a variation of what I'm already familiar with, that is, peony-like flowers and tiny spray flowers, all wired and wrapped in white floral tape.

Cute buttons in pink and beige dot the centers of the flowers. 

Yellow pearly butterflies hover about and bring life to this charming assembly of individually made flowers.

Note the variety of patterns, textures and details.

Made with such joy!!
