I live in a geeky household! We have lots of old books and comics sitting around. When the books or comics get torn, the binding breaks or the cover gets lost I cut up the pages and use them for flowers instead of just throwing them away.
I was already making origami comic book flowers for ornaments when I was approached to make some comic book boutonnieres for a local wedding. They turned out so well and I got so many requests, that I am now offering them in my shop!
This listing is for 2 boutonnieres made with X-Men comic books. Each boutonniere has two little flowers twisted together to make one boutonniere. Each flower is approx. 2 inches wide and approx. 1 1/2 inches long. The whole boutonniere is approx. 3 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long with the wire.
Each flower is made by folding a single sheet of origami paper into a "petal" for the five petal flower. Once five petals are folded they are combined with glue to form the flower.
I can make custom orders for more than 2 boutonnieres or less. I can also make them in any particular comic book or character you would like!
These boutonnieres and all items in my shop are made in a smoke free home and studio.
***There will be some variation in the paper and paper placement used on each boutonniere 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.
