I LOVE these flowers, they are amazing. The craftsmanship is of a very high quality, and I love the designs. It was great working with you, as you really understood what we were trying to do, and communicated really well every step of the way. Our Wedding will be even more beautiful now - thank you so much.

About

Love at first lily

It was a long time ago...

I have been making origami flowers for 15 years now.
It was love at first lily. I have always shaped flowers adding a little sculpture, I think it gives a life and originality to flowers, and take away stiffness of classic origami techniques. Origami is my passion, and I can not stop folding. One of my old ori friend said that origami people are like drug addicts, they are dependent on the folding, and I'm sure one of them.

Customizing....

I especially enjoy doing costomize bouquets. To paint paper before folding it into flower to achieve the desired shades or/and gradient of colors. In such processes always are born new ideas, and that moment of discovery and innovation I especially love.

Also talking with you and getting to know your desires and all things behind them are the great moments of acquainted different people and cultures.

Eco friendly...

Whenever I can I use the pages of old books, which are written off from local library. And I have an agreement with the library to take books that would otherwise have gone to recycling.

I use only non-toxic glue, water based. It is therefore necessary that the finished flowers and bouquets stay for another one or two days before sending, in order to glue has dried completely , and then I verify that everything is perfect.

For packaging I'm using already used but clean boxes from the local supermarket.

Because my flowers will last for 10 or more years, they can be given as gifts to bridesmaids, family, and guests. In the end, once they're no longer wanted any part of it can be recycled.

* * * * *


Folding, painting, and all other things that make a part of making bouquets and other flowers items from paper for weddings and any other occasions are magical process for me and I belive that every one at the moment when seen the bouquets and flowers in live will feel that magic, too.

Ahead in https://www.etsy.com/shop/CeruleanBird?ref=si_shop , I hope you will enjoy.

Hello and Wellcome to Cerulean bird! It is great to have you here :)
If there's anything I can do to make your day bloom just let me know!

I love working with you to create the perfect flowers for your home decor, gift for your loved one, or special occasions.


There are three lines in my shop:

- Classic line- can be repeated 99%
- Artistic line- can be repeated from 0 to 50%
- Upcycle line- can be repeated from 50-99%
*Because all of items are hand made they can not be replicated with precision of 100%

Classic line includes a flowers which are made from the usual diagrams, and the mono or printed paper.

Art line is fully or partly my moment of inspiration. The paper is upcycle, monochrome or printed. It can contain a variety of other features that can not be redone.

Upcycle line is partially or completely done by upcycle paper, and the flowers are made by the usual diagrams. Therefore, replicating its texture is difficult due to specific paper material.

Extras: Every flower or bouquet which you purchased can include decorations on your demand such as plastic beads, glass beads, beads of semiprecious stones, tinsels etc. Or can be drawn with acrylic paint.
