In the last 14 months life has changed though and first the elderly father passed away and his amazing wife passed away just a few weeks ago.
Fighting against leukaemia she lasted 12 months after her husband but it was with many visits and stays in the hospital. And here's where the paper roses come in...
Apparently you can't have real flowers in hospital anymore as there are do many chemicals and Allergies. So I set about making her some paper roses.
They are so simple and there are plenty of tutorials out there and I'll add some more photos soon but I had fun with them and made decorative packaging for presents, hair clips for a day of the dead costume, my dad has some now in his office and im still not finished yet!
And most importantly of all my neighbour loved them and they brightened up her stay in hospital! Y
