Oupas

We so love this idea of a paper flower shop perfect for those who are allergic to flowers or those with a limited cut-flower budget.  This is exactly what this Portuguese studio, Oupas, has done.  The studio consists of Cidália, Joana and Sofia who studied graphic design together.  After finishing college they decided that they shouldn’t stop and wait for a good job, they should get into the front battle and start their own studio.  The designers are paper and cardboard makers who started creating mainly for big events but as their skills improved focused on smaller detailed works.

You can follow the studio at their website, Facebook, Behance and Instagram.  Their floral bouquets can be purchased here at their shop.

Tania Lissova

Loving these tiny paper plants created by Russia-based paper artist, Tania Lissova. The miniature creations are used to embellish greeting cards and framed art pieces.  A graduate of Architecture and Arts the artist uses a variety of paper and texture to create these intricate 3d paper plants. There certainly would be no anxiety caring for these plants as they are everlasting.
