Goddess is a 76" X 48" wall hanging made with high-quality, acid free paper. It will be on display (and for sale) at Erinn V Maison in Beverly Hills this coming week.
Goddess breaks down into two separate pieces, so if your space isn't big enough to accommodate the whole thing, not to worry! This first segment, which we call "(bobsmith!)," is 42" X 39".
And this second piece, called "Linda," is 49" X 48".
We displayed "Linda" at a wedding event, Bride Bop's Big Day, at Erinn V Maison this past Sunday. Linda and (bobsmith!) will be reunited to form Goddess soon! Stop by the store (319 S. Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA) and check it out!

We had a blast at the RuckusRoots TRASHion Show on June 16th. The event was a fundraiser for sustainable arts education, and included a fashion show of garments made entirely out of recycled items. We were thrilled to be asked to participate, and enjoyed the challenge of making a piece of wearable art entirely out of recycled paper. Paper Botanicals designer Susan Spehar used a collection of old CD cases left over from her children's adolescent years to build an intricate, wearable ode to rock n' roll, which she called Fleur de CD. The body of the dress was constructed using mainly the CD inserts, while the shoulder adornments and back "cape" was created with recycled white paper flowers Paper Botanicals had built for a wedding last year. Susan's daughter Stephanie modeled the dress, and both mother and daughter got to walk down the aisle together. What a special night! Below are some pictures, you can see more pictures of the entire event on the RuckusRoots website or on the RuckusRoots Facebook page! Thanks to Dan Krauss for all the images.

For a client's Bat Mitzva, we made this custom flower-in-a-box as a congratulations gift! The sparkly blue paper perfectly matched the young lady's dress, and will serve as a memento of her special day for many years to come.
