Lately it seems that paper flowers-or mulberry flowers to be exact-are my thing. They are so delicate and beautiful and really soften the look of all my vintage art projects. Just one flower added to a project can add a very soft and feminine look to the whole piece. For a time I was using silk flowers but they just seemed to look hard and a bit out of place to me. Maybe its that they have that ugly nylon backing as leaves that just never lays right...who knows.
I was first introduced to Mulberry paper flowers by Prima Marketing. They carry some amazingly beautiful flowers made from a variety of materials but WOWZA are they expensive! I set out to find a similar type of flower somewhere else and it seemed that all the stores wanted to carry were the Prima ones...boo.
While watching videos on Youtube I found a gal who ordered some very pretty flowers from Crafta.com and I placed and order. The flowers were amazing and just as nice as Prima for a far more reasonable price.
Then last week I saw several other videos with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I placed and order with them and WOW!! These flowers are superior to any others I have seen available! The detail is amazing and the colors are gorgeous. Take a peek at at the video below as I share my them with you.
