I love corrugated!! Can you tell? I cannot stop making things with this material. This mountain is approximately six feet tall, so far. I am working on designs for an upcoming Class Reunion. I think I might spray paint some of them... but I really like to use natural materials... so, I might just decorate everything with Paper Flowers!! I know... FLOWER POWER!!
I am constantly... I mean CONSTANTLY looking for ways to do things without spending money. I believe it brings out the creativity in all of us. For this wreath I spent time in my yard cleaning up after a Spring storm. I particularly like to make square wreaths... first because they are so different... and second, because they are easier to make than round ones. I like to layer the branches and secure them with paper covered wire. The bunny is made from a scrap piece of wood wallcovering that I simply sketched a silhouette on the back and cut with scissors. It is all decorated with Paper Flowers [my reason for making everything] and a little twine. Super Cute!
A very dear friend asked if I would create a Paper Flower arrangement in tribute to a close relative. This creation is meant to live on with her Husband and each of her five adult Children. The main flowers used were White Roses which represent Spirituality & Everlasting Love... along with Red-Violet Roses which represent Wonder & Enchantment. The Cross is made with Twigs & Sterling Silver wire. I was honored to create this important keepsake for a very special family and of course, my dear friend!!
This is a most incredible bouquet. I was blessed recently to have two dear souls visit me and make flowers together one afternoon. These two lovely ladies... Kathy & Anne spent hours with me creating amazing paper blossoms. I had to share Anne's finished bouquet. She was creating this special gift and was very deliberate to use only those that would reflect the home where they will live. Anne was thoughtful to key into color and decorative elements creating a more Contemporary arrangement. I am sure you will agree it is stunning!! Congratulations Anne!!
