ROMANCE, ROSES AND REMINISCING

Hello, I’m Miss Poppins- a paper artist, solopreneur and romantic who lives in a bygone era filled with flowers, vintage fashion and endless cups of tea.

My days are spent crafting paper flowers that I’ve perfected making over the past seven years for thoughtful and caring partners wanting to romance their loved one. These long lasting blossoms are sought after around the world to mark memorable moments; from wedding days to endless anniversaries, and any other “just because” reasons in between.

A TOUCH OF NOSTALGIA
As a child, I was constantly crafting, dressing up as a bride with bouquets of flowers from Mum's garden and visiting Grandma's house to watch the Disney film 'Mary Poppins'. Later on, I fell deeply in love with sculpture when studying a Bachelor of Visual Arts, but then decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a nanny like Mary Poppins in London, England. This led to many adventures working and travelling abroad, until I needed to recover from a heartache, so I packed up my bags and moved to Melbourne. It was here I combined all my lifelong passions of creativity, romance and Mary Poppins, and began a little business I fondly call Miss Poppins and Me.

HANDMADE WITH LOVE IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
Based out of my vintage home studio in Melbourne, I spend countless hours meticulously hand cutting, curling and assembling every petal and leaf of my paper flower creations. I obsess over the details of crafting the ideal rose, sourcing quality papers from around the world and creating unique and everlasting pieces of floral art.

TRUE LOVE AND ROMANCE
For me, the essence of romance began with the example set to me by my loving parents. To this day, they celebrate their wedding anniversary on December 1st by exchanging gifts and cards first thing in the morning, then in the evening dressing up in their wedding attire for a special home cooked dinner and rewatching their wedding video. Throughout the year, you can feel their love for each other as you witness the cute and random gifts they like to bring home for each other “just because” they can. I thought this was the normal kind of celebration you share with your partner, until I moved out of home and discovered everyone is quite unique- some don’t celebrate at all, some forget, others make minimal effort, while others go to the extreme.

After scrambling around with ideas of what to do with the paper flowers I was creating, a customer approached me to create her an anniversary rose, and then each year she kept returning with a request for the next anniversary edition. Being a romantic at heart, this inspired me to help other couples express their love by creating anniversary gifts as gift giving is one of my love languages and a way of life.

HELPING YOUR ROMANCE BLOSSOM
Since 2014, I've so far helped love stories continue to blossom across Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States of America. There have been paper flowers crafted for elaborate and intimate weddings, Valentine’s Day gifts that would melt your heart, roses seeking forgiveness, gifts of surprises from loved ones stuck abroad and grand gestures to impress partners on wedding anniversaries.

Will your love story be next?

With floral love,
Miss Poppins x

Frequently asked questions
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOMISATION?

If you can't find that something particular you're looking for, please contact Miss Poppins via Etsy messaging or at hello (at) misspoppinsandme.com with the following details to request a custom order:
•FLOWER TYPE and COLOUR you require
•Shipping LOCATION (city plus zip/postal code)
•DEADLINE date you need your order by
•Any ADDITIONAL DETAILS that will help

Once all of this information is received, a quote will be sent to you as soon as possible. Depending on the workload and your requirements, custom orders currently take approximately 2 to 8 weeks. Rush orders may incur an additional fee, and a 50% deposit may be required.

DO YOU OFFER A GIFT WRAPPING SERVICE

All paper flowers are carefully packaged with tissue paper and placed inside a white gift box with lid and tied off with an elegant black satin bow and Miss Poppins and Me gift tag. For extra protection the box is then wrapped in bubble wrap, and shipped in a poly mailer satchel with fragile tape.

Also, you can include a message to your beloved at the checkout in the gift message section and this will be neatly handwritten on a white business card sized Miss Poppins and Me gift tag and included in your order. The message must be no longer than 250 characters, and include a to/from name if you so desire.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CARE FOR PAPER FLOWERS?

• Handle with tender loving care
•Display your flower in an empty vase away from the window as direct sunlight causes fading
•Dust with a clean & unused make up brush, or hold upside down and gently spin the stem
between your palms to shake off any dust
•Avoid moisture and flames
•Serenade your flower (and beloved) with love songs from the Miss Poppins and Me Spotify playlists

These care instructions are included with every order.

MY ORDER IS LATE. WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

Most late parcels arrive within 5 business days of their expected delivery date, so please firstly check that you have provided the correct shipping address. Please be aware that some parcels may be delayed by COVID-19 disruptions.

Orders shipping within Australia can be deemed as lost if they have not arrived within 15 business days of the expected delivery date, within 20 business days of the expected delivery date for international orders or 5 business days for express or courier orders.

If your order is lost, please contact Miss Poppins and she will do her best to rectify the situation. Please note that if the tracked item is marked as delivered by Australia Post but did not arrive, Miss Poppins will not be held responsible.

MY ORDER HAS ARRIVED DAMAGED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please contact Miss Poppins via Etsy messaging or send an email to hello (at) misspoppinsandme.com with your order number, photos of the damaged box and contents immediately so a resolution can be made as quickly as possible for you. Please note that you may need to retain all damaged items, packaging and contents in case a claim has to be made with the postal service.

CAN I CHANGE MY SHIPPING ADDRESS AFTER PLACING AN ORDER?

An address can only be changed by Miss Poppins if the order has not been shipped, but please note that she is not responsible for orders shipped to an incorrect address. If your order has shipped, please contact your postal service with your tracking number to verify if you can redirect your parcel to the correct address.

If an order is returned due to an incorrect address, the buyer is responsible for paying the return shipping costs to resend to the correct address.

DO YOU ACCEPT RETURNS?

If you have ordered an anniversary rose in the wrong colour or year, and it is not a custom order, Miss Poppins will accept a return on these items if contacted within the first 7 days of delivery, and will refund the full purchase price (less shipping) when the item is received in its original condition. You will just need to cover the cost of shipping, which includes both domestic and international orders.

Please note that a refund is not available for change of mind or for not reading a product description properly prior to purchasing (please note that all flowers on this website are made to order from paper sourced specifically to match each anniversary tradition).

HOW IS COVID-19 IMPACTING ORDERS AT THE MOMENT?

Miss Poppins is continuing to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic with health and safety precautions. However, please be aware that shipping is outside of her control, and due to flight cancellations and government restrictions, your order may take longer than normal to arrive. You will receive a tracking number when your order is shipped so you can keep a close eye on its arrival.

HOW DO YOU MAKE PAPER FLOWERS?

The most popular anniversary roses take approximately an hour to make. They begin as a stem of florist wire which is wrapped in floral tape and the tip is bent into a bud shape with cotton wool balls and more floral tape.

All the petals are hand cut from various papers that range from 100 to 200 gsm, depending on the type of rose. These petals are curled and cupped to create a realistic petal shape, and then attached to the wire bud shape with hot glue.

Double layered 180 gsm Italian crepe paper is then carefully hand cut and glued with tacky glue to form the leaves, calyx and bract, then the stem is wrapped with strips of crepe paper and all the parts are carefully attached to form the beloved rose.

DO YOU SELL VASES?

Unfortunately vases are not available at the moment sorry. The vase in the photographs was from a thrift store and is 18cm in height. A bud vase would be ideal to display your paper rose, between 15cm to 18cm so that it comfortably sits below the leaves.

If you have any recommendations for an amazing single stem vase wholesaler or ideal way to ship glass safely around the world, please either send Miss Poppins a message on Etsy or email at hello (at) misspoppinsandme.com.
