For the love of paper flowers!

Good Tuesday evening! I found a moment to do a simple blog. Mainly, it's a look at pretty flowers made of fabric and paper, as well as some pretty lace and buttons and sparkles. If you're already a lover of paper flowers, you have likely already seen the January Prima Product Pick:

I loved another blogger -- Micupoftea's -- suggestions for ink colors to use in projects with these beauties. Really, check out her blog and see all sorts of amazing ideas and beautiful thoughts!

Personally, I look at all of these beauties and imagine a small trinket-size version of a Hope Chest for a Spring Bride; maybe with some dew drops created on the petals. They certainly deserve to be seen daily!


Maybe even have some fun attaching them to some hair clips or combs. I've been on and off of that interest since this past summer -- attempting to create my own hair decor. Slowly, this is what I've come to realize about Prima flowers -- or really any created flower. It's a chance to find and utilize beauty in the least likely of resources. It's something that can be enjoyed for a long time. It's something that can be manipulated to meet one's own desires. There's little you CAN'T do with a paper flower; and I'm having fun trying.

So, what would you do?

Even if you're not sure, you can always click on the Prima link above, share their Product Pick on your own blog; repost THAT link on their blog and have a chance to win those beauties.

Imagine the possibilities.

  1. You are a gem, Anne! Thank you for the 'shout out'. Hmmm, I frequently wear hats (everything from my newsboy caps to a straw fedora)so I think I might put a flower on my hat! LOL~ Thanks for getting me to think outside the box. I really appreciate your visits. xo


Please feel free to tell me what you think. I'd like to hear from you.
