I spied these lovely paper flowers at the Frances & Francis shop on Etsy. I think these may be the loveliest paper flowers I have ever seen. I can just imagine the skilled hands that are needed to turn a sheet of paper into these. I've always had a thing for paper flowers, well all flowers really, but I've never indulged it. It always seemed like a frivolous extravagance I wouldn't allow myself. But hey I indulge all my other frivolous extravagances so why not?
If you're interested in training your hands for such a skill, these tutorials from Martha Stewart and The House That Lars Built seem like a good place to start. Maybe I'll talk a little craft break from my looming deadlines for some flowers this weekend.
