My own patterned paper!

Stamps are a wonderful tool for creating your own patterned paper. Depending on your stamps you could create nature-themed paper, simple geometrical patterns, antique writings, or something abstract and wonderful.

I have these great wood mounted rubber stamps of butterflies, flowers and trees, so for I created my own paper and constructed flowers for one of my Etsy clients, an Alaska bride.

Check out the flowers which later turned into boutonnieres, corsages and cake flowers!!!
Note: The boutonnieres, corsages and cake flowers I mentioned will complement this BOOK Flowers Bridal Bouquet.

A Dozen PAPER FLOWERS and BUTTERFLIES in Pink and Yellow

I made this bunch of paper flowers for a very special girl's birthday.

Her mother wanted to create a lovely surprise for her daughter, so she asked me to make a dozen flowers in her daughter's favorite colors: PINK and YELLOW.

Roses, peonies, daisies and a few fluttering butterflies - all handmade and ready to bring joy on the girl's birthday!
