This origami lotus flower, approx. 5 inches across, was handmade using an exquisite Italian paper printed with vintage french postcards -- "Cartes Postale". The leaves were folded from a green paper whose color is called "leaf." With its lovely sepias, soft greens, and pale roses, and peaches, we think we now have a new favorite lotus!

The photos show an example of a flower made from this specific paper combination. Each lotus we make has its own character and beauty… there can be a bit of variation in the petal positioning due to their handmade nature and the way the paper is cut.

Our hand-folded lotus flowers work wonderfully for table decorations or favors at weddings, showers, garden parties and other special events. They make unique thank you, birthday, bon voyage, graduation, hostess, and teacher gifts. These lotus flowers would also make an elegant bow on a gift-wrapped package.

Please convo us if you'd like a different color combination or a quantity of them. We'd be happy to create a reserve listing for you.

We invite you to look at all of our items at fishandlotus.etsy.com.
