This cherry blossom bouquet comes with 12 origami flowers (you may choose to add extra flowers at checkout) in a stunning mix of white and shades of light pink 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 also use a special technique to finish off the edges of each flower so that they look like cherry blossoms. 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.
Cherry blossoms or sakura hold special significance in Japan. The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In Japan the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. Cherry blossoms are a reminder that life is overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.
This Pink 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 flowers (real flowers are not allowed in most cancer wards), ICU flowers, little girls room decor or as hostess or housewarming gift.
The flowers are approx. 2 inches wide. The if you choose to purchase is approx. 6 inches tall. The vase may vary based on availability but it will always be clear glass. 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.

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.
