Note from shop owner I'm moving from Maine to Washington state! Yep, clear across the country! That's going to take some time, but I'll be back in August!

About

I'm an artist obsessed with art history and paper flowers

I'm an artist obsessed with art history and paper flowers. I take in-depth research, tons of trial and error, elbow grease and a pinch of magic and turn it into paper flowers based on great works of art throughout history! I turn those flowers into paper flower kits! Enjoy the meditative, fun and satisfying feeling of making wow worth paper flowers!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Please keep my kits and it’s flowers out of the sunlight and away from water as these will affect the color.

How long will the kits take to make?

Each flower will vary a little depending on the kit, but they tend to take 30 to 45 minutes each, not including drying time.

What kind of paper do you use?

If you are just starting to make paper flowers you might not notice how different the paper I use in my kits are. Traditionally paper flowers are made out of crepe paper or tissue paper. While these papers do make amazing flowers I have never been satisfied with how flat the colors seem. When tackling some of art history's masterpieces a single color would have never worked. It needs those colors, it needs those brush strokes. The paper in my kits allows all of those details so that they not only represent a flower but evoke the masterpieces that inspired them.

Is everything included in the kits?

My Kits include almost everything you’ll need... Almost, but don’t worry all you’ll need to make these paper flowers are a sharp pair of scissors, wire cutters and white glue. I recommend a high quality, PH balanced white glue for best results.
