A handmade paper dahlia. The colour is the most brilliant magenta red. I grew these dahlias all around my garden this summer and so was compelled to copy one in paper.
The painted wooden box is 6 x 9 inches and 3/4 of an inch deep. It is charcoal grey on the outside and a mottled lighter 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. This flower has also been sprayed with a UV protectant to prevent fading. 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.
