Upcycled Vintage map paper rose boutonnieres


 Hi guys! This was a project I was working on this week.. a custom wedding order.


 These are boutonnieres made from vintage map paper. This map was topographical and very bright...but that is what they wanted to go with their wedding colors, navy and lime. I thought they turned out cool!


 They were from Alabama, so I tinted the map paper for the calyxes and leaves a brighter lime and used mostly an Alabama vintage map page for those.


They shipped today and are on their way! I have another order I am working on for shabby cottage Christmas stockings and I will share that when I get them finished. It has been an absolute crazy house at my home lately. We did an antique show this weekend and sold tons. We loaded the leftovers and all our tables etc. into the truck in 5 minutes! I have never sold so much before. We went to a sale last weekend and bought a ton that I need to clean and list..and handmade things that are screaming for me to finish them. I need more hours in the day! Stop back again and see what I am up to! Til next time..Julia
