This piece is a box filled with flowers from a bridal bouquet. A lovely way to commemorate a special anniversary!
This piece features two beautiful native wildflowers that bloom on the recipient's birthday.
Made for a mother to celebrate her two daughters, both of whom are named after flowers!
I will treasure your creation for the rest of my life! It is even more stunning in actual life. Thank you.
"I requested a custom made piece: flower of each birth month for a new born baby, her auntie and grandmother. The flowers made were stunning and placed beautifully in the box. A unique and custom piece."
"I absolutely love this handmade apple blossom. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase! The detail and craftsmanship is fantastic. I actually feel guilty that I paid so little for it. I would recommend this artist to any one looking for lovely paper flower sculptures."
"Another remarkable creation. This gifted seller captures the natural world with great beauty, remarkable creativity, and a charming vintage feel. These are pieces to treasure!"
"The intricate detail this artist creates is amazing... so lifelike. The brilliant colors reflect the authentic quality of each piece. This work of art will be cherished."
The flowers arrived on Wednesday, and I immediately hung them up. They’re splendid! Thank you!
