It’s about me

Welcome to Christine paper design.
Christinepaper design - DeersPhotography.com
Paper flowers are my passion and a memory that will last forever.
      I’m Christine, a fashion designer and painter who became a paper flower artist. Since I was a little girl I enjoyed nature and flowers, I loved to paint and draw, so I went to Art School and studied painting. After that, I majored in Fashion Design and spent most of my youth being a fashion designer. I discovered paper flowers six years ago, by accident in a picture online… I was fascinated about the idea and had the instant thought that I can make paper flowers. I had this feeling that I needed to do something else with my life, to find a way of expressing my artistic vision.

…so, I was so happy when I discovered these wonderful paper blooms because I finally found a way to express my talent, my craftsmanship and my love for colors, all together.

    I learned the techniques of making paper flowers by myself, I wanted to have my own style and became a paper artist! So, after a few years of learning and practice, I quit my job and began making paper flowers full time.

Work aesthetic

    I make flowers and bouquets that can last many years, that bring joy in people’s homes and lives and preserve a memory of some event – the wedding day for example. I feel so grateful that I can make something beautiful with my own two hands.

     With every flower I make I try to capture the realistic look as good as I can… my customers are always telling  me stories how people always mistake my flowers with real one, which gives me so much pride and joy.

    I mix the paper flower techniques with my love for colors and painting and I study  images with real flowers and try to figure out ways of reproducing them. I spend lots of hours researching and my flowers have an unique, distinguished look today after many years of practice.

    Also, because I’m not satisfied with the range of crepe paper coloring (which also fades very quickly), I paint the paper so I can obtain the colors I want and make it more resistant. I love mixing paints and discovering new shades all the time. I work only with Italian crepe paper and acrylic colors… I see this paper as my canvas and I think it’s perfect for my vision, thick and very resistant.

    My working process starts with research of real flowers. I study many images with them, I make sketches, mood boards and think of ways to reproduce and practice them. After this steps are ready I make all the  flowers, greenery, buds and other elements necessary for my bouquet … of course,  the color theme is controlled in every small detail.

   I always find inspiration in nature and real flowers. There is also a very talented worldwide community of paper flower artists which I truly admire and keeps me motivated.

 I spend  most of the time in my studio… it’s a lot of hard work but always so fascinating! I usually make a bridal bouquet in four or five days of non-stop work, more than 12 hours a day! There is a lot of sacrifice behind my work, so you must be aware that when you by my products you get a piece of my hart and soul with it. I love what I do and I make every single flower with lots and love and dedication.

  Enjoy the galleries on my web-site and social media networks,  with lots of images… a testimony of many years of hard work and dedication.

Christine.

    Your work is absolutely beautiful! Do you ever include or use custom paper? for example I was interested in having a bouquet made out of/ including pages from books.
    If not that’s fine, your work is amazing! A bouquet of paper peonies is my dream.

    Hi Christine,

    I was just wondering pricing options for a small bouquet. I was also just wondering where you are based. Would you ship to Queensland Australia at all?

    I am so amazed at the flowers, they are so stunningly beautiful!!

    Thank you! :)

    Hi! I’m interested in learning about your pricing. Single stem, small arrangement, large arrangement… how does it work? I have a few areas around the house where I’d love to display these gorgeous flowers!
