The paper flower Poppy is, as the name suggests, inspired by the beautiful red poppy, the epitome of the Danish summer.
Poppy is a handmade crepe flower designed in collaboration with Kristina Sørensen from Labdecor. The flower is part of a collection of 4 paper flowers in 8 different colours from Studio About. The flower consists of a long, flexible green stem, with a fine flower head. The flower head itself is made of solid-coloured crepe paper.
Use the paper flowers individually or put them together into bouquets. You can use your paper flowers in the same way you would use the natural flower. The difference is that your paper flower lasts forever and does not need water. If you choose to combine your paper flower with ordinary flowers, remember to protect the part of the flower in water.
Crepe paper flowers are also beautiful as part of your own styling and perfect as a gift for someone you care about.
USE THE FLOWERS CREATIVELY
In addition to the decorative properties of paper flowers, they are also both versatile and long-lasting. We have gathered some inspiration on using the paper flowers in different ways - either as part of your decor, on the table or as accessories. And if the urge for renewal should arise, the flowers can be reused in new creative projects.
Here are some of our ideas:
Wrap the paper flower around your napkin and serve a plateful of flower happiness to your guests
Mix paper flowers with fresh flowers (but remember to protect the paper stalk from water)
Use the paper flowers as a colourful eye-catcher in a dried bouquet
Treat your friend to a stalk or two as a hostess gift
Decorate your gifts with a paper flower
Use the flowers individually or put them together for bouquets
Make a beautiful flower wreath for your hair with paper flowers
The paper flowers have a flexible stem and will fit in both small and large vases - bend the stem a few times and use it in a small Standing Bubble or leave it in all its glory in the tall cylinder vase Flower Tube.
BRING THE FLOWERS TO LIFE
The paper flowers from Studio About are handmade and gently folded in a small box. When you receive the flower, you need to unfold the leaves yourself. You can choose whether the flower should be fully open or slightly more closed.
The crepe paper is also easily shaped and if you gently rub the thumb into a leaf, you can give the leaf a slight rounding. This way you can give your flowers a personal look and they will be livelier and truer to nature.
Follow these 3 steps to unfold it completely:
Carefully grab the flower head down in the box and pull it out.
Spread the petals of the flower.
To create more fullness, you can gently pull your thumb in the centre of a petal, making them more curved.
You may also leave a single or two flowers closed as if the flower were in buds.
