Miss Havisham's Paper Flowers


A current crafting obsession: handmade coffee and/or tea stained paper flowers. I cannot stop making these paper craft blooms - dyed, collated, trimmed, displayed. So many uses and ideas...

Grouped in a large arrangement as the focal point of a coffee table (shown here with dried thistles)...

Tucked into a bookcase to add texture, dimension and color (that is a brown bear skull, a x-mas gift!)...   

As a single bloom in a unique bud vase, in this example a ceramic faux stone...

Strung together as a bunting for a celebration or just for fun (bunting = FUN!!!)...

 A bouquet in the entryway - shown here with dried cock's comb (don't say cock), pheasant feathers and twigs...

 As an accent on a headband - this is a great conversation starter (or ender)...

As a decorative brooch or corsage!

Don't you feel these flowers could have been picked straight out of Miss Havisham's garden? They are even highly flammable!
