Paper greenery, a pleasure to make!

When It comes to paper greens, I could make this all day long every day! I absolutely adore making paper flowers but I can’t say why I love greens so much… I really have a small obsession with these, especially with all the eucalyptus types.

    Just starting in paper flower work. I too love greenery and have been searching for tutorials and info re. Do you study the living versions or could you recommend any excellent books about this. I’m going on 80 years old but I’m so excited to learn this new craft. At one time I worked for a florist and it was my favorite job of all time.

      I’m so happy for you, It’s a nice thing to do at any age! I study the living versions yes, and adapt my paper flower techniques but I’m sure you will find some tutorials online (maybe on youtube). My favorite authors on paper flower are Tiffanie Turner and Jessie Chui, but there are a lot of beautiful books about paper flowers out there, just give it a google search.

    Hi Christine! In your faq it says you don’t use beads in your work. Are the seeds in your eucalyptus branches rolled paper with the wire running through it? It looks so natural I can hardly tell!

      Hello Kailyn,
      Oh, no… this is an exception to my rule, the only time I use small beads in my work. This is the only way I could find to recreate the eucalyptus seeds… but I recently bought some polymer clay, which I plan to use in the future.
