In the spirit of all that is romantic, I HAD to show you these gorgeous roses, made of paper – YEP PAPER, made by my very talented friend Joelee
. I have spoken of the amazing paper work that Joelee does before when we both had a stall at Evandale markets. I didn’t have many images to show you then…til these. Joelee
arrived this morning to get some help wrapping these beauties for a client, and with all of her amazing accessories I had loads of fun!
Here is a shot of one of the bunches finished. We used this wonderful double sided sheet music, aptly named ‘Let Me Call You Sweetheart’.
Enter four of her exquisite roses, which look so real. I can’t believe this woman!
They looked perfect in this paper and on top of some old linen I had. The slight shimmer of these roses is beautiful.
We also added some of her handmade tags to the bunches. The tin hearts are stamped by Joelee
, painted and aged. I would love some in white…they remind me of pressed ceiling tin.
Some cute black ribbon with white text completed this bunch and I think they looked terrific.
Who wouldn’t want a bunch of those?..and they won’t die!
You can see the other tag in the background, but I wanted to show this single stem that Joelee
had made to resemble a Tea Rose…so cute!
Another of Joelee’s stem with a different tag. On the back of each tag is a gorgeous flourished stamp with lines for a hand written love message.
I couldn’t help myself! Joelee left some of the roses with me so I could play around with them. I came up with this setting.
A little bottle, my Love You tag and some thin white ribbon…imagine this on a breakfast-in-bed tray?
Laying beside the bottle is a mini rose, made with a organza ribbon.
Now, I can think of a million uses, besides the obvious holiday to use these lovely flowers…Wedding bouquets and buttonholes, table arrangements, gift toppers, get well bunches, Paper Anniversary gift (is that the first wedding anniversary?)……..
If you would like some of these beauties for yourself, or a loved one, please send Joelee an email
is about to open an Etsy store where you will be able to see a lot more of her fabulous paper creations (she is working on some magnificent paper chandeliers). Stay tuned for that one.
