About

My story is not that exciting, I promise you....

So I've always been an intrinsically "crafty" person. Part of that comes from my father and the other part comes from my years spent in a sorority. As a sister in any sorority you tend do a lot of arts and crafts. A LOT. And you pick up little things here and there. But college was an unmentionable number of years ago for me....so we'll move on!

One day I decided to try my hand at making rolled paper flowers because I wanted something to compliment the neutral colors in the kitchen of our house. Well, they turned out pretty good. So from there, I decided to make a few more and post them for sale on Etsy....can't hurt to try it, right?

Well I didn't know at the time that these flowers were a really good budget-friendly alternative for special occasions, such as weddings, birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day (and so on and so forth). These flowers were in high demand... I couldn't complain.

So here I am, over a year later, and I've expanded into making a variety of other products out of paper flowers: boutonnieres, hair accessories, corsages, wreaths....even wine charms!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop! Paper flowers are great gifts for all occasions simply because they're just as aesthetically pleasing as real flowers, but they last a whole lot longer! They can also compliment any room in the house, such as the living room, kitchen or bedroom. I hope you enjoy my arrangements as much as I enjoy making them. Each bouquet is handmade from specialty paper that is 100% recycled. Please feel free to contact me regarding ideas or designs for custom orders.

Other paper flower items available from my shop, aside from bouquets include boutonnieres, corsages, hair accessories, loose flowers, table decor, wine charms, wreaths, table markers and more!
