Our family Christmas theme was “Make, Bake or Create” this Christmas and I had the task of trying to make something for the girl who makes all things paper. What to make, and then I had an idea, when Brooke was little she enjoyed her ballet lessons and the end of year concert was “The Nutcracker”.
On a recent trip to Ballarat trawling through the many op shops there I cam across a Little Golden Book “The Nutcracker” and had tucked it away thinking I would use the pages for origami. The cover design was so lovely so how to incorporate the cover into something made. It naturally lent itself to being a roof so the Little Golden Book paper house was born.
But not only is it decorative it is also functional as one half of the little roof opens so that treasures can be tucked inside.
Markets will commence with our first market scheduled for February 19th at Seaford Handmade Market. We have been developing new ideas over the summer break and will be excited to show you our new creations. We will update our market itinerary each month.
We had the privalege of creating bridal bouquets for our first wedding in December 2016. Thanks to Shannon and Matt for choosing everlasting paper bridal flowers for their wedding, they looked gorgeous
Christmas trees have been a favourite amongst our customers this year and we now only have one left : this one is sitting pretty amongst Chatterbake macarons : but you will need to be quick : our final market for 2016 is our favourite Seaford Handmade Market on Sunday 18th December in the Seaford Scout Hall opposite the Farmer’s market :
Introducing our “Paper Bag Posy” perfect for any occasion. Everyone loves receiving flowers but everlasting flowers are the gift that keeps on giving : can be made with any combination of 5 poppies in colours or themes of your choosing and at only $20 per posy a less expensive option than fresh flowers
Paper flowers used sensitively alongside their fresh cousins can look equally as beautiful and enhance floral arrangements. They can also give pleasure once the fresh florals have spent their blooms and become a lasting memento of a gift of flowers.
Magnolia Reine fresh flowers sitting in vintage tea cups were the perfect backdrop to our paper flower
