Paper . . .
I’m always intrigued by what can be made with it. I haven’t had much time to create lately with my busy schedule, but today the creative voices were speaking to me. The alluring whispers would not go away and my thoughts turned to ethereal flowers made of delicate tissue paper. I took a little time in the late afternoon to indulge them.
Right now my Hubby and I are trying to keep expenses down. Paper flowers are a wonderful and inexpensive way to decorate for Valentine’s Day.
I paid $1.49 for the tissue paper, 99¢ for the floral tape, and 50¢ for the floral wire. All this came to a grand total of $2.98 plus tax. With all these supplies I can make 30 to 50 flowers depending on the style and my stamina.
Romance at its height . . . a deep red paper flower glows against the simple white muslin.
A few years ago I went on a flower making frenzy. I gave them all away except for this rose. The links I used for the paper flowers above can be found here, here and here.
May your weekend be filled with romantic inspiration.
