A handmade paper bindweed vine with a flower, leaves, and a bud. This lovely native vine clambers up bushes that grow by the shore of the river. Hummingbirds love to visit these trumpet-shaped flowers, which only stay open for one day. This plant is in the same family as morning glory. I made the leaves from drawing paper, and the flowers from hand painted doublette crepe paper. This piece forms a part of my River Plants collection.

The vine is mounted into a shallow wooden box that has been mounted onto a piece of unfinished pine board. The box is painted very dark blue and the board is stained lighter blue/green. The name and Latin name of the plant are mounted below it on a hand-written plaque.
All of my paper flowers, leaves, and plants, are made from high quality materials. They have been sprayed with a UV resistant spray and are made to last! I will include care instructions with your purchase.
