Forget the florist, your new organic flower shop has arrived. Our eco-friendly paper flowers are awesome! Most of our artificial flowers are made from recycled or upcycled magazines or books. Therefore no page is alike and each flower turns out one of a kind. The stems of our origami flowers are made from a re-cycled / up-cycled wire hanger which means you can bend the flower however you like, we then wrapped it in yarn we had left from other projects. These flowers are great for wedding arrangements, romantic gifts, children's room decor, birthday gifts, ect. They are the everlasting gift. You can place them in a vase, add them to an existing plant, or whatever else you imagination can come up with.
After deciding on certain pages from magazines or book, each paper is individually hand cut to size. each individual paper equals one petal, the amounts of petals vary from the type of flower, usually between 40-100 petals. Each piece of paper is folded 9 times to create this design. After all of the pieces are folded they are then carefully linked together to create a unique paper flower. After they are linked, each level of the flower is then given a coat of mod podge to hold it together and make it more durable. From start to finish it take about 3-5 hours to make one paper flower... the outcome is amazing, and the process is always fun.
