Paper flowers are a fantastic, long-lasting alternative to real flowers, I love to have both in my house! Paper flowers can be made using sustainable or recycled paper and are ultimately biodegradable so are more eco-friendly than fabric flowers. I also love the artistic skill in creating them.
At Paper Tree we have a beautiful range of paper flowers from roses to lilies, peonies, sunflowers and cherry blossom. All are made from sustainable mulberrry paper – the bark of the Mulberry tree is used to create the paper without the tree being cut down. If you are looking for a unique and sustainable Valentines gift our Valentines paper rose bouquet is available in any combination of pink, red & ivory roses.
If you would like to make your own Valentines paper rose there is a brilliant tutorial at Studio DIY. Paper flowers are fairly time-consuming to make but only simple materials are needed – crepe paper, wire and glue.
I love these roses from The House that Lars Built the paper has been painted to add detail to the leaves and petals.
Wishing you a very happy Valentines day.
