Paper Flower Photo Wall Canberra

Photography: Erin Dando

I had the pleasure of making these paper flowers for the Handmade Canberra's - special Mothers Day market.  They took about 17 hours and lots of patience, cutting, painting, folding, shaping, gluing, experimenting... my fingers were quite sore by the end.  We hired an ivy wall from local company Show Pony and most flowers were on wire stems so I could just thread them through the lattice.  I love making - it is my happy place.

The larger poppy type flowers are made based from The House That Lars Built tutorial.  The rest are my own designs made with a mix of cardboard and paper.
