{work of art: paper flower wreaths}

. . . happened upon these beautiful and incredibly handmade paper flower wreaths that bring back memories of the intricate paper flower tiaras in the chanel spring 2008 couture show and are perfect for a frosty january morning . . .

{p.s.} blossoms in the bedroom

Wow, it's amazing what one can do with a single sheet of paper. These wreaths are so gorgeous, as are the flower headdresses from Chanel. Great post!

These are beautiful. I'd probably couldn't do anything but leave them up all year.
The flower headdresses from Chanel...I need one of those.

Very cool. I'm always impressed when people are able to create such beautiful things out of a simple source (paper).

These wreaths are positively breathtaking. They make me feel inspired to try my hand at some paper cut-out art myself. Thanks for the post!

How beautiful! I want to replace my antique copper Christmas wreath, hanging in front of my tall, tall mirror, with this soft colored one for warmer months :)
