There are five gorgeous pop-up bouquets in this book, true masterpieces and a reflection of quality paper engineering. There is a bouquet of spring flowers; an array of bright, tropical flowers; a floating lotus garden; a vase of lilies in vivid hues; and, a delightful bunch of roses. The colors are in turns vibrant and muted, and the paper engineering is amazing. The book can be opened to any one of the bouquets and set upon a desk or any even top to be displayed as a beautiful arrangement. I intend on getting one for myself and giving many more to friends as gifts!
This wondrous book has now come "full circle." I personally received this beautiful piece of artwork for Christmas in 2010 and it seems to be the gift that keeps on giving! It so resonated with me, that I have purchased and continue to purchase (now a total of 20!) Paper Blossom Pop Up Books for all sorts of occasions!
Thought it would be fun to track where my Paper Blossoms purchases are spreading joy and what the occasion was:
8 in Brooklyn (Bay Ridge)...where the pin began. (1 as a 10th anniv. gift, 1 as a b-day gift, 1 as a gift for a dinner party, 3 given as perpetual bouquets to forever memorialize loved ones, and 2 as Christmas gifts.)
1 in NYC b-day gift
1 in Rhinebeck, NY b-day gift
1 in Hillsdale, NY b-day gift
1 in Silver City, NM a healing gift for my brother recovering from heart surgery. A reminder for him to embrace "his inner child."
1 in Trinidad a friendship gift to my friend's daughter who was visiting me
1 starting from Stuart, Fl. traveling to Michigan in a brand new RV (RV warming gift!)
1 in Portola Valley, Ca. as a housewarming gift
1 in No.Hollywood (going to Las Vegas, Nevada once married) as a bridal shower gift
1 in Portland, Oregon as a housewarming gift
1 in Havertown, Pa. as a perpetual bouquet for my beloved Uncle Sam!
1 in Wurtsboro, NY as a housewarming gift to a dear friend of mine who followed her bliss and relocated to her dream home
1 in Alexandria, Va. as a gift to a new friend that I met on Cornell GBH website who is a birder, nature lover and an outstanding photographer! She is having a kitchen renovation and I thought this would be "just the perfect gift!"
I usually keep a "reserve" of at least 2 Paper Blossoms Books in my closet for the special occasions that inevitably pop-up! ;)
Again, Paper Blossoms is The Perfect Gift, The Perfect Price, with the Perfect Outcome! It provides a perceptual experience, lends itself to feelings of emotional well being, AND brings Awareness to the distinctive and inconceivable divine talent that people are gifted with...Ray Marshall has this gift and he is a Master of his Craft!
