As my daughter’s wedding approaches we have been continuing to create the paper bouquets. By we, I mean Michelle. She has folded over 200 kawasaki paper roses in every colour and shade of the rainbow. They are absolutely amazing to see together spread over the table. It really takes tenacity to fold so many complex roses. She learnt it with this video by Toshikazu Kawasaki
Our task over Easter was to mount them and that was successful too as there aren’t too many instructions on how to do this on the net and we had to experiment with petal folds and different papers. They are mounted with glue and wire using a simple petal fold. It’s great to work on such a project, especially with my daughters. We’re going to plan a project each year, even without a wedding as a purpose. Maybe a quilt next.
