Thanks to Kate Alarcon of @cobralilyshop
and our very own Quynh for this wonderful idea: We are thrilled to announce the first ever International Paper Flower Day!
We’d love for you to join us in celebrating the art of paper flowers and our vibrant, diverse community of paper flower artists. In honor of 18th-century botanical paper artist Mary Delany, we chose May 14th, which was her birthday.
If you’d like to participate, you can use the hashtag #internationalpaperflowerday
. Feel free to post a photo of new work, an all-time favorite bloom or bouquet, a maker portrait, or a story about flower making, just to name just a few possibilities.
Also, if this sounds fun, please spread the word! This isn’t just for professional flower makers, but also for anyone who’s ever swooned over a well-crafted bloom or had a blast gluing tissue paper petals around a popsicle stick in elementary school....
