A very wet and grey weekend kept us inside and pining for some color. After seeing this tutorial by Zakka Life awhile back, we decided to nurture our own paper blooms, not from seeds but straight from the mailbox. (We opted to use double stick tape for our flower power instead of glue.) When finished, the paper creations can be hung with clear fishing wire or just placed on a flat surface. I love the blended textures of color and image, which are not unlike fabric swatches. Regardless of what you make, one thing is for certain: It’s time to look at that pile of junk mail with new eyes.
