I’ve recently fallen back in love with paper flowers. I used to adore making these things in school for Mother’s Day and the like, but I didn’t know then that they could look so classy and beautiful if you want them to. Just take a look at these stunners on the equally amazing Plenty of Colour blog (recommended to me today by one of my coworkers).

The creations, made by photography/design company Thuss+Farrell, are nearly as beautiful as the real thing — and they last a whole lot longer. Wouldn’t they be just gorgeous as gift toppers or wedding decorations?

Here’s an easy tutorial on how to make your own.

    My male half knows all about the Falling in love at first sight is very true.. It’s happened to me a cploue of times, the result of my last love at first sight has resulted in my current relationship that is entering its 7th year. It’s hard for most people to truly understand the POV of the opposite sex, But being that I quite literally straddle the gender fence I see it from both sides. As a female I have always guarded the L word with extreme prejudice because most women are not easily swayed by someone merely proffering their love. We quite literally hear it all the time. I generaly get at least one confession of love every other week, by someone who has never even met me and has only seen my pictures and have had several marriage offers (as if that were possible) over the last 4 years LOL! Are the men who make these confessions of love being honest? I think in some cases, that yes, in that moment they are being honest about the feelings they are experiencing. They love the perception of what I am, my beauty and the ideal of what I am. But the motives behind that love are based in something that is not really love .. Women on the other hand need more than just an ideal to sway them. Women see love as something much deeper. It is something that spans many different levels of perception that is not easily explained or quantifiable. I am fortunate that I have gotten to see Love from both sides to know and have an understanding (albeit a somewhat limited) of how both men and women perceive the emotion of love. To each gender it is a unique experience, but keep in mind that all individual perceptions vary.My 10 cents
