Shooting Star is a fluffy new example of paper flowers from the fourth collection designed by Kristina Sørensen from Labdecor in collaboration with Studio About. The flower is generally inspired by the Cactus dahlias with their resemblance to a star and lights up in the garden as colourful stars - therefore the name Shooting Star.
Shooting Star is made from one-coloured crepe paper attached to a long, green stalk. The stalk can be shaped however you like and will therefore never be too long for any vase.
INFINITY BOUQUET OF PAPER FLOWERS
The Shooting Star with its fringes have a different noticeable expression which makes it perfect for bouquets- Like the Grand Peony and Cherry Fluff paper flowers which also are news from the fourth collection, the Shooting Star has volume, but with its long flower leaves, it gives more upward going volume - depending on how you shape the flower when you take it out of its packaging.
So, your Shooting Star can be used as a single, but can also be put together with other paper flowers or regular flowers (in this case, remember to protect the paper flower from water). Our Shooting Star is perfect for volume in a bouquet with its big crown, men by that can also stand by itself - especially with the available colours we have chosen to make it in. The yellow version can easily be the eye-catching element of your bouquet, but can also light up among dark wooden colours or compliment light oak for balance. The same goes for the yellow Apple Flower which is also a part of the fourth paper flower collection.
In addition to the decorative properties of paper flowers, they are also both versatile and long-lasting. We have put together some inspiration for you who want to use the paper flowers in different ways - either in your decor, on the table or as accessories. If you feel like something new, the flowers can be reused in new creative projects.

BRING LIFE TO THE FLOWERS
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.
