Before graduating, I wanted to give flowers to my college mates as an appreciation for our friendship in varsity. But because fresh flowers aren’t long-lasting, the inventive lass decided to make paper flower bouquets for them instead. Since then, I fall in love deeply in making paper flowers.
On special occasions, I would make cards for my loved ones because I have always believed that handmade gifts carry more sincerity.
However, coming from a family that does not believe in careers in the arts, I pursued different majors for my tertiary education, which are all not art related. Nevertheless, I never gave up on my passion in arts and crafts.
This is the first centerpiece I made. I made it in pastel color to create a comfy eye view. It consists of hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, peonies, eucalyptus and baby’s breath, and all of them are paper-made.

Another smaller centerpiece I made it in cheerful colors to brighten one’s day.

Roses were the first paper flower I made. I personally love roses a lot because they are the queen of flowers.
Then, I would wrap them beautifully to gift away.
I always adore the magnificent scenes in Alice in Wonderland. Therefore I made some giant roses.
Beside roses, I also like the lush peony a lot.
Paper hydrangeas are good to see, but very torture in making.
Lotus are symmetrically beautiful.
I also made some paper flowers for celebration, for example this Christmas wreath.

I love making paper flowers because it cheers everyone. It gives values to the papers and me. I became more confident and stronger when I go for things that I love.
