This paper flower bouquet comes with 12 origami flowers in (you may choose to add extra flowers at checkout) a beautiful mix of traditional and kimono patterned origami paper. Each flower is made by folding 5 individual sheets of paper into "petals" and gluing them together to make a flower. Each flower takes about 10-15 minutes to fold and put together. I then bend the floral wire for each flower to make the center and stem. This bouquet is available to be purchased with a clear glass vase (you may choose to order one at checkout. Vase fee also includes additional shipping fees). Due to availability the style and size of the vase may vary but it will always be clear glass.
I love origami paper and folding origami kusudama flowers. I fold kusudama flowers for several other items in my shop and have always thought about folding a bunch of flowers for a bouquet. I finally had a good excuse when my mom had double knee replacement surgery recently. Instead of buying her a traditional flower bouquet that would die after a few days I decided I would finally try out my origami flower bouquet idea. It came out great and she loved it along with every nurse, medical assistant, and physical therapist that came into her room. So here is a copy of the version I made for her!
This fun patterned origami flower bouquet would be great for wedding table centerpieces, 1st anniversary present (1st year is paper!), Valentine's day, Mother's Day, get well flowers, cancer patient or ICU patient flower (most cancer and ICU wards don't allow real flowers), office decor, little girls room decor or hostess or housewarming gift.
The origami flowers are approx. 2 inches wide. The photos show the vase with 12 flowers. If you do not order the vase the flowers will be left uncut so that you can cut them to fit your needs. They are approx. 16 inches long uncut.
This bouquet and all the items in my shop come from a smoke free home and studio.
***There will be some variation in the paper and paper placement used on each bouquet because the pieces are handmade and placed, so please expect some variation from the picture.****

Yes, I can customize pretty much anything in my shop. I can make custom color schemes for any mobile, ornament, boutonniere or bouquet. I can also customize frames, gift sets and mirrors.
All origami items are made with paper and can not be cleaned with any cleaner or damp cloths. I recommend dusting with a feather duster or Swiffer type duster at least once a month. I also recommend using canned air to clean dust out from inside the folds of the origami pieces. Frames and mirrors may be cleaned using a damp cloth.
If your item is a gift I am happy to add a gift note (on a handmade card) along with an invoice with no prices on it. Please just leave a note for me at purchase. Some items can be gift wrapped (ornaments, frames and mirrors). There is an extra charge for gift wrapping and can be purchased at checkout.
Please note I am happy to make custom orders but they either need to be paid for or have a deposit put down before I start work. Each custom piece is unique and handmade, so they can not be resold if buyers back out before payment. I will send paper samples for approval to make sure orders are what you want.
