Today I get to share these beautiful paper flower creations from Moll and Mostin – a new business I’d not come across until recently and I most certainly fell in-love at first sight. Moll and Mostin is run by the lovely Lucy, who tells me she’s had a lifelong love affair with paper, vintage “and everything I can get my hands on at antique markets!”
Starting out making greetings cards with the magazines and papers she’d collected, she soon started looking for uses for those bits that were left over. From here, Lucy began creating these beautiful vintage paper roses for hair pieces, fascinators, bouquets and buttonholes. Each one is made by hand from pretty vintage papers – Lucy can even make them with papers of your choice, with maps and sheet music current favourites.
Engaged couples have also asked Lucy to make bouquets from copies of their love letters or photos together – a wonderful way to incorporate how you met into your wedding day. Lucy says, “I love the that the bouquet will not wilt and die after one day – it’s not only a greener way of doing things, but it means you have an extra momento.” In addition to creating the paper roses, Lucy runs hen party workshops so that brides can carry a bouquet where each paper rose was made by her closest friends.
