Making Paper Roses for Pink Saturday 5/23/09

I found these darling offices and thought I'd share them with you. Aren't they gorgeous?!?! Squeeeeeeeeeeal!!!!!!!!!!!

For the froufrou-y cowgirl.

For the high fashion chick.

For lovers of pinkKKKK!!! I love the backs of the bookcases.

For the lovers of "small" offices.

For the "gotta have sun" office lovers.

I've been purchasing paper roses on line for years and today decided to try my hand at making some myself. (Okay, so they aren't pinkkkKK.......adjust, chicks! So far I've made 3 and each one gets progressively better but looking at these photos you would not know it. The numerals over each one show the order in which I've made them. The first one looks best on the photos but in actuality the number 3 one looks best. It takes a lot of lemons to produce lemonade, chicks! I'm up to the task. However, I'll always buy some from my usual source because I just love the service I get from her. Service in this case matters a great deal to me, not the price.


Random Thought:

Why in the world do they call a seedless watermelon seedless?? It still has seeds in it.


  1. I would take any room in my house looking like those!

  2. I really loved the sun lover one as it looked so pristine and due to re-decorating our home, pristine it is not!

    Your roses are lovely and I love the fruit and leaves background.

  16. Hello. I am a young woman getting married this fall and I want to make all my boutineers, corsages and bouquets from paper ahead of time. Your roses were the most beautiful, full roses I could find online. Could you post something on how you made them, step by step, or post a link of where you got your inspiration.

    Thank you. :D
