I am totally smitten with these gorgeous, handmade paper flowers created by Noel Solomon of Fanciful Designs. Noel inspired the crew at Martha Stewart, too, and was invited to demonstrate how she makes her paper blooms on Tuesday’s show.
In addition to huge paper roses, Noel has designed blank books (use as a guest book for a wedding or as a special gift for a graduation or birthday). Have friends write a special note and include a photo and compile them in the book before giving. I received a similar book as a gift at my bridal luncheon and it is something I treasure.
Hang one or more of the oversized paper roses on a girl’s bedroom wall.
And, if you’re feeling ambitious, watch the demonstration Noel gave Martha and try making your own!
