Upcycled Paper Doiley Flowers

White, mint green and blue paper doiley flowers. These I made for 'Manila Art Market', an art fair event/scene that was created for a local TV hit series, On The Wings of Love. The scene was aired last November 3, 2015. One of these blue paper doiley flowers was even held by Clark (portrayed by James Reid) during the art scene. *swoon x 1000!* :)

Hello friends!

It's been a while and I'd like to make it up to you by sharing something pretty and cheery.

As evident in my posts, I'm a huge fan of paper. I use it in almost all of the arts & crafts that I do. It's so simple, unassuming and easy to use as an art medium.

Aside from paper cutting, I also love doing paper mache and paper flowers. And my latest obsession is paper flower making. There are a lot of tutorials on the web as to how to make paper flowers so you are free to choose whatever you fancy.

I styled a baptismal party last August, and one of the props I used for styling are paper doileys. I dyed it in 3 graduating shades and used it as a photo wall backdrop. I've consumed about 500-600 pcs for the said event. As a person who care for the environment, I always aim to reuse my props again and again (as is or altered a bit). And I wanted to start with the dyed doileys since I find it very pretty. I thought of turning it into paper flowers since it is rounded in shape, it's easy to make flower petals from it. I also like that it has cutout patterns, as it will surely add texture and character to the final piece.

Below are a few of my works. Enjoy! :)

'Til next time!
