The Autumn Collection - hancrafted floral paper decorations

It's Friday so it's time for a little pretty. Paper artist, designer and illustrator Helen Frances of Frances and Francis recently got in touch to introduce their new Autumn Collection of handcrafted floral decorations - now available from Etsy.

Helen makes each one herself by hand, beginning by using a locally handpicked branch from the park near her studio. The natural shape of the wood dictates the positioning of the paper flowers. She creates flowers for a range of design mediums such as for illustrative purposes, animations, sets and window displays.

For those of you who are already getting into the festive spirit Helen also makes these beautiful paper mistletoe sprigs - ideal for decorating your hallway or for attaching to an extra special Christmas present. If you place an order today or on Monday you'll receive one for free, so you have an added incentive to treat yourself.

It's a two post day on Design Hunter today, so I'll be back later to wish you all a happy weekend.
