My handmade paper columbine. Columbines are such delicate and graceful flowers. This one was inspired by a columbine flower blooming in my garden.
The painted wooden box is 6 x 9 inches and 1 1/2 inches deep. It is black on the outside and mottled purple on the inside. I have written the Latin name for the flower, "Aquilegia" on a piece of heavy paper and mounted it above the flower in the box. 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 crepe paper, watercolour paper, wire, paint and glue. Using high quality materials and careful techniques ensures that my flowers will last a long time. I also 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.
