Sometimes a paper is so gorgeous that you don't want to cut it or mess with it in any way, always keeping it for something more special along the way.
My vanilla-colored fleur-de-lis-patterned paper fits in this category.
I enjoyed it too much to ever want to do anything with it. So it stayed untouched for a long time. And then, in one afternoon, I decided to finally use it for something pretty and meaningful and made these 3 paper flowers.
What makes these flowers so special?
- Hand-cut petals, folded and inked, then glued into place to form the flowers;
- Lovely silverish pearly beads for the centers;
- Wired stems which can be twisted in any direction or form, or kept straight for easy displaying in a simple vase;
- Most of all - this lovely lovely designer paper, evocative of rustic elegance and shabby chic awesomeness.
