A collaboration with paPetal

Earlier this month, I mentioned that I was working on a few creative projects, of which the most exciting was to create a mini bridal collection with my friend Jen from paPetal. Here's a little sneak peek at our first project together...
Using beautifully hand crafted flowers that Jen had made in various shades of white, I assembled them by sewing and hot gluing onto a plain fabric clutch bag and then added pearl and gold embellishments to create a one of kind flower bag created with a romantic, flower loving bride in mind.
I love how Jen has styled the bag; the blue background is remisnicent of the clear sky on a sunny day and really makes the bag pop!

Jen and I have a few thing other things up our sleeves, so watch this space for more updates!

PS: paPetal is now open for business, check out her Etsy store for her amazing handcrafted flowers
