Paper to Petal is a collection of products, handmade paper flowers, and objects that celebrate paper-craft. Influenced by nature and imaginatively inspired. From the studio of Thuss + Farrell.

mail art! truth i am super old school and i love snail mail, nothing beats the joy and excitement of getting mails in the letter box. These colourful envies were results of my son and i water colour play! we had hours of fun with just colour, paper and water. And i made them into envie after that.
