giant paper fleurs.

we had a couple of fun days making giant flowers complete with stems and leaves for our two London Ghost stores on kings road and in westfield ( : i also went to the other side of the scale and made a really small flower from crepe paper for my mum’s birthday ( : a new love. i think they look really effective and brighten up the stores.
