Recycled Paper Rose Boutonnieres

This is a set of origami rose boutonnieres I made. They are made from the pages of some old damaged books, painted to add some color and sprayed with a finishing spray made for paintings to make them water resistant. They make great hat pins too.

    Glad you like it :)

    I didn't post instructions because it's really not of my design - the only part that's my idea is the recycled paper and sparing use of paint. There are instructions everywhere for the paper rose. It's called a QT rose. This site has really good instructions: http://www.origami-flower.org/origami-rose-qt.php
