This beautiful handmade paper rose artwork makes a lovely personal and meaningful gift.
Inspired by the Victorians' love of paper flowers (they used to fill their houses with them when there was no longer any in their gardens), the paper flower in this work is carefully hand tied from little paper hearts.
THIS IS A PEFECT GIFT FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL - it makes a lovely present for a BIRTH, CHRISTENING, WEDDING or ANNIVERSARY (the first anniversary is traditionally represented by paper), a NEW HOME or for any lover of books and flowers! THIS WORK COMES WITH A HANDMADE GIFT CARD AND CAN BE GIFT WRAPPED ON REQUEST.
This paper rose is mounted on antique white paper which is surrounded by a pale cream mount.
TO PERSONALISE this work I can include personal messages such as names and dates of a special event within the petals of this rose (see the detail images) - this could be the names of family members or the names of a bride and groom and the date of their wedding.
I print the names and dates repeatedly onto book paper (in order to echo the the poetry and music petals) and tuck them in amongst the others so that they are not immediately obvious but a subtle little message to the receiver of this gift! You can have up to three personalised petals, just fill in the boxes provided when you place an order.
TO PERSONALISE THIS ARTWORK EVEN FURTHER, I can make the rose from your chosen poem or book or even a special song or piece of music, please choose this option if you would like me to do that and I will source the text. If there is any problem sourcing the text I will, of course, contact you as soon as possible - there is a small additional charge of £10.00 for this.
The artwork can be framed in either a white or black frame which can be hung on a wall or placed on a surface. It is glazed with 2 mm perspex to protect the paper and sent to you in a specially made protective box. The work is signed and dated discreetly on the front.
The papers I use are mainly cut from unwanted vintage books of romantic poetry and music but it is possible to have the rose made up in a special book or poem of your choice. I can print your chosen text onto different qualities of paper in order to give your rose a variety of interesting texture.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL, please just get in touch and I am always open to new ideas!
The overall dimensions of the framed work are 25.5 cm square and 4.5 cm deep.
