Here is a Book Blossom bouquet from the Dahlia Collection, fashioned from the very yellowed pages of a salvaged Fantasy/Sci-fi paperback - The Eyes of the Overworld by Jack Vance published in 1966. The 5 flowers range in size from approximately 2-3" to 3-4" across. They are 12"-14" tall on Bamboo skewers. Perfect for your favorite librarian, book lover or rock-star teacher.

The Dahlia Collection started to emerged one day from the cut-offs & scraps from other PaperAltar projects. This Paper Dahlia encompasses the geometric beauty of the Dahlia variety, and though they take a long time to construct, they last a lot longer than the actual bloom! Sometimes, depending on the paper I'm using, they can be a natural organized chaos & other times look very orderly. Some of the flowers need one or two tiers & others need three depending on the size. The Dahlias can be Ornaments, Flowers on Stems, Garlands, Magnets or Wall Art. I am currently working on Boutonnieres & Fascinators.
