Handmade paper Water Smartweed. This cute little flower pokes up through the water in late summer adding a bright splash of colour to the river landscape! The leaves sort of float on the surface, getting carried by the current. I made this piece as a part of my River Plants collection. I used crepe paper for the flower and drawing paper for the leaves.

This flower 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 the plant on a hand written plaque. There is hanging hardware on the back (D ring and wire).
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.
