Everlasting Blossoms -- Hand-made paper flowers

Happy New Year! To celebrate, here are some non-tech origami paper flowers to brighten the winter and anticipate spring events and weddings.

These are created by Karin Hope Dixon, an artist and graphic designer that I happen to know well ... The different designs are described at her Everlasting Blossoms site, and around 100 individual bouquets and flowers are available from her store on Etsy.

(If you haven't seen it, Etsy is the online marketplace for all things handmade -- with over 100,000 sellers from around the world since its launch in mid-2005.)

Photos, left to right:
- Bouquets and bunches of classic origami, specialty, and rose designs and accents, including nested designs, blossoming and buds, and baby blossoms.
- Earrings and hanging ornaments, with hook or hoop earrings. Simple and elegant to fun and fanciful.
- Blossom Bonsai tree, formed of cloth-covered floral wire, wrapped to form a trunk, rooted on stone, and tipped with blossoms.
