Handcrafted and lifelike paper flowers, a love story that’s getting stronger every day!

Since I was a little girl I enjoyed nature and flowers, I loved to paint and draw, so I went to Art School and studied painting, majored in Fashion Design and spent most of my youth being a fashion designer. I discovered paper flowers in 2012. Since then I became fascinated with this idea and had the instant thought that I can make beautiful paper flowers. I had this feeling that I needed to do something else with my life, to find a way of expressing my artistic vision.

I learned the techniques of making paper flowers by myself, I wanted to have my own style and became a paper artist!
My paper flowers are well built, strong and I dare to say, can last forever. With every flower I make I try to capture the realistic look as good as I can. I mix the paper flower techniques with my love for colors and painting and I study images with real flowers and try to figure out ways of reproducing them. I spend lots of hours researching and my flowers have an unique, distinguished look today after many years of practice.

Because crepe paper sometimes fades very quickly, I paint it so I can create lovely shades and have control of the color theme. I love mixing paints and discovering new shades all the time. I mostly work with Italian crepe paper and acrylic colors… I see this paper as my canvas and I think it’s perfect for my vision, thick and very resistant.

My creative process starts with research and study of real flowers, sketches and mood boards. After that I create and develop the techniques and practice a lot. I cut the paper free hand, using my imaginations. I don’t cut the paper using templates and because of this, every flower is unique. I spend most of the time in my home studio… it’s a lot of hard work but always so fascinating!

Enjoy the galleries on my web-site and social media networks, with lots of images… a testimony of many years of hard work and dedication.

Christine.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I make custom orders if the time frame is convenient for me.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please contact me for this option or leave a detailed request in the Note to Seller section when placing your order.

Is shipping secure? Does it arrive safely?

Yes, I do my best to make that happen. I use a hard cardboard box which I sustain with walls of polyester so it doesn’t deform. I also make a support system for the bouquet that keeps it still in the box. The rest of the empty space is filled with tissue paper. I usually send pictures with the inside of the box so you can see for yourself.

How should I care for the paper flowers? How long do they last?

Paper flowers are meant to last for many many years if you take proper care of them. You must keep them away from direct sunlight and moisture! One of the reasons I paint my paper with acrylics is that crepe paper colors fade very quickly because of the natural light. By painting it, not only I obtain the shade and details I aim for, but also, I make the paper more stronger and resistant to natural light. Some paper flowers are very delicate and fragile but I’ve developed, over time, some techniques that make them stronger. I also use a varnish spray with UV protection that will help the paper that isn’t painted not to fade as much. If you find your flowers need dusting, giving them a gentle shake or blowing on them gently should be suff

How long does it take you to make my order?

You have to let me know your deadline first so I can see if I can make it in time for shipping. I take orders with many months in advance… this is the only way I can arrange my schedule in order to deliver.

How do you ship?

Packages will be sent with Romanian Post using priority registered mail, this means that you will receive a tracking number. I will keep track of your order and send you a delivery notice via email.

If your country is not listed, please send me a message and I will be able to confirm shipping costs for your individual requirements.

Can you give me a shipping time estimate?

Romania - 2-3 business days.
UE – 1-3 weeks (depends on a country).
USA/Canada – up to 3 or 4 weeks because of possible Covid 19 delays.
Australia – Because of the Covid 19 situation, shipping to Australia can take a few months. Be aware of this situation before you make a purchase.
Other countries - please contact me directly to get the estimated shipping time.

Shipping times are estimates and I do not guarantee them nor make myself responsible for any possible delays with shipping.
If your package is lost, please contact your local post office for assistance.

Why are your paper blooms more expensive than real flowers?

…or at least they should be, because you have to consider the fact that this is hand-make work, a creative and artistic process in which every paper bloom is made from scratch – the paper is died, every petal is cut, shaped, glued on one by one. It may take a couple of hours to make just one flower. You're paying for the material cost, the workmanship and also the hours of researching, practice and study, sourcing for the best materials, and experimenting new techniques. I fell that with every project I learn something new and every bouquet is unique because it’s also a work of art.
