I AM THRILLED THAT EVERYONE WHO ORDERS FROM MY PAPERBLOOMS APLENTY KNOWS THEY’RE GETTING GORGEOUS CUSTOM HANDMADE FLOWERS THAT WILL LAST FOREVER.
Our paper flowers are worthy of DIY home decorators, brides to be, party planners, and gift givers alike. My Paperblooms Aplenty’s flowers make special events even more special. And since they never die, our flowers will last just as long as the memories made in giving or receiving them.
Before creating My Paperblooms Aplenty I enjoyed going out of my way to make sentimental gifts to remind people that they are loved and special. And I soon fell in love with the idea of using paper flowers while planning my sister-in-law’s wedding as a wedding gift in 2014.
People saw my flowers posted on social media and said they wished they’d had the option of beautiful realistic paper flowers for their weddings, homes, parties, and to give as gifts.
They shared reasons they’d settled for specific wedding flowers when the flowers of their dreams were out of season, unavailable in their wedding colors, or out of their price range. A few family members even expressed unfulfilled desires to have flowers in their homes due to allergies.
At first I was concerned people would shy away from my prices. although our flowers are made from cardstock, a lot of time, love, & care goes into creating each & every flower. Once cut, each petal is carefully curled, shaped, embossed, glued & colored in order to look as realistic and beautiful as a real flower. The process means sometimes a single flower can take up to 30 minutes to create. But a friend said she would have been willing to pay even more just knowing that she could preserve the flowers perfectly and have them serve as a reminder of such a special day in her life.
And so I set out to create the most beautiful paper flowers in the market!
After weeks of searching, several technology courses, contacting paper experts, doing some trial shipping runs, and communicating with other paper artists I was finally able to get premium papers at the best possible prices as well as custom sized boxes and systems to get our paper flowers from my hands to the customers in perfect condition at the best value too!
Once I was finally able to release our first products the response was incredible. In fact, word of mouth spread quickly and I started getting orders even before I officially launched the shop! Acquaintances ran up to me to say they were showing my flowers to everyone they knew. Let’s just say that My Paperblooms Aplenty is in full bloom and flourishing in more ways than one
