Paper & Petals – Flower Wrapping Workshop

Wrapped Gerbera Daisy with Floral Pick Medallion by Corinna vanGerwen

Japanese watermark tissue replaces the unattractive mylar that potted flowers usually come wrapped in. The medallion floral pick — featuring chiyogami paper — is an elegant, personalized way to send a message.

Learn how fine Japanese papers can turn potted plants and packages of bulbs into gorgeous gifts and seasonal centrepieces. Using daffodils, tulips and hyacinths, we will demonstrate how to “wrap” flowers and dress up vessels for gift-giving, party favours, or just to decorate your own home. Plus, in a hands-on segment, students will make a medallion floral pick with a personalized message to add to your own arrangements. Great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts and wedding decorations. Materials included.
