Making Paper Garden?

My friend  & sister of the the heart had asked about my paper roses. This is for her  I have a close-up of a couple that were made  ( 20 ) for a Red Hat High Tea in 2011. Although I do create them just out of paper and adhesive they are not my original technique; they can be found in plenty in the paper art world. Making them especially in the evening with music relaxes me.  Works out great for a lowly old piece of paper. These paper roses were used to decorate individual tea boxes that sat on each table. They have nothing else embellished to them. There a few other ways to dress them up and one is using micro=glitter so it looks like fine drops of dew. Fun.~

  3. BB~~I have no time right now…just coming around from a nap I “had” to take. Would you believe I was frozen? Yes, I know you would. Aching and sore before class…grrrr. But for now, I wanted to let you know I saw them and WOWZERS! More later. I promise. For now, I need to assemble myself for class and I’ll need every second of the two hours I have until I need to leave! Much love sweet lady!!
