vena's bouquet

Four months ago, my friend, Vena, asked me to make a paper flower bouquet for her wedding in February. 

She will be having THREE wedding parties (Jakarta, Malang and Sydney) and wanted the bouquet to be the same one in all the three parties.

I'd be lying if i said i was confident about her request. 
I've never made a single paper flower before, but i was touched with how much she trusted me of being able to make it. Google led me to some favorite tutorials and over time i ended up having fun making different types of flowers (as you can see here). The most time-consuming part would be making the petals, since each petal is individually shaped and pleated before being attached to the stem.
For Vena, she specifically requested for peonies. Pink peonies. 
For the bride's bouquet, bridesmaids' corsages and the groom's boutonniere. 

When she picked up her flowers today, i was relieved to find out that she and her mum were exceptionally pleased. They both LOVE the flowers. She also text-ed me saying she didn't want to take them off of her hands and her mum wore the corsage straightaway in the car after leaving my place.
Thank you Vena for this honor.
Can't wait to see you on your D-day and have a blessed and wonderful married life ahead in Sydney!  :')

Special Hellofest edition

I found a book of vintage kid's wallpapers among my collection and i think their looks goes very well with the Hellofest event that i'm participating this Saturday. 

Featuring old-school illustrations and patterns on the borders which i top-stitched onto the covers of some of the wallets. Just so charming!
