Paper Flower from PaperPhine

Perhaps you're familiar with the name, Linda Thalmann - and not just because of this feature - but because you've come across her beautiful site, PaperPhine. Linda sources paper yarn and paper string from around the world; she sells it and creates unique jewelry with it too.

Paper Twine Flower

Creative talent obviously runs in the family, as Linda's mum and dad made this stunning bloom using leftover bits of brightly colored paper twine. Her father is a retired engineer and Linda tells me he's currently trying out all possible "structures". We'll be treated to more paper flowers on the PaperPhine blog soon!

Meanwhile, should you want to try your hand at making twine flowers of your own, Linda has posted a few tips and other ideas here.

Facebook Finds this past week:

Cherry blossom kirigami tute

Speaking of pretty cherry blossoms, the tree in my back yard is in full bloom today, which definitely takes the edge off Friday the 13th! I hope your weekend will be just as beautiful.
