A handmade paper Cardinal Flower in a shadow box frame. Cardinal flowers are a magnificent native wildflower that can be found growing beside rivers and streams. I love swimming up to them in the summer time to admire their intense red colour. The hummingbirds love them too!
The painted wooden box is 6 x 9 inches and 3/4 of an inch deep. It is dark grey on the outside and a faded light grey on the inside. There is hanging hardware on the back and it is signed.
Each of my paper flowers is handmade with care and attention to detail. This sculpture is made from Italian crepe paper, wire, acrylic paint, and glue. Using high quality materials and careful techniques ensures that my flowers will last a long time. These flowers have also been sprayed with a UV protectant. I include care tips with each purchase. This unique shadow box would make a fun addition to a cabinet of curiosities, a bookshelf, or an art collection. I welcome custom orders for paper flowers; these shadowboxes make a wonderful, thoughtful gift.
